You are the person I think of when I write. I imagine you sitting across from me, a flickering campfire between us, as I spin a tale into the night that makes your eyes sparkle and your heart race. The promise of your emotional attention is the inspiration for my storytelling.
I write hard-hitting, engaging Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contempory Adult, YA and Juvenile fiction. In my personal experience, life is not always easy, and so it cannot be easy for my main characters. Life is going to challenge them, and they will have to overcome their flaws, take action, and save themselves... or not. My writing is ripe with temptation, rife with danger and excitement, and rich with ideas and themes that will leave you thinking for days after you have finished reading.
Go to my Billboard to read a few excerpts from my three fiction novels: The Fergus She, a vampire possession tale of a girl who just won't let fate dictate her future, The Precious Quest, an epic fantasy of a nomadic tribe, led by a warrior queen who is torn between worshipping her Goddess and accepting the Goddess' rule is at an end, and The Raised Hand of Man, a warning tale of the men entering a young girl's life, and how each takes a piece of her on their way through.

If your goal is writing, you can read my blog, which is full of excellent writing, marketing, and publishing tips. I spend hours each week listening to podcasts by industry experts like Joanna Penn and Brandon Sanderson. I research articles, and subscribe to newsletters, and trythe latest technology, all to learn more about writing, publishing, and book marketing trends that lead to bestseller success. I'd love to share that knowledge with you.
