I write young adult novels with bits of history and brush strokes of romance. I also write poems and short stories, but novels are my passion.

My literary influences are Tolstoy, Gogol, and Dostoevsky. Though my writing style could never be compared to theirs, it is their work that is my inspiration.

I strive to skillfully capture the interest and attention of the reader by creating a story that is captivating and well written. Perfecting my craft will be a life long journey.

My rating system for books will probably vary from many, but I'll give a quick description below.

5 stars is reserved for my very favorite authors and books-Tolstoy, the Bible, Dostoevsky, etc. So not many books get 5 stars from me.

4 stars are for books that I love and wou

Samuel Butler
“Books want to be born: I never make them. They come to me and insist on being written, and on being such and such. ”
Samuel Butler

Howard Pyle
“The stories of childhood leave an indelible impression, and their author always has a niche in the temple of memory from which the image is never cast out to be thrown on the rubbish heap of things that are outgrown and outlived.”
Howard Pyle

Marina Tsvetaeva
“There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?”
Marina Tsvetaeva

Barbara Kingsolver
“The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Chaim Potok
“Human beings do not live forever, Reuven. We live less than the time it takes to blink an eye, if we measure our lives against eternity. So it may be asked what value is there to a human life. There is so much pain in the world. What does it mean to have to suffer so much if our lives are nothing more than the blink of an eye?

I learned a long time ago, Reuven, that a blink of an eye in itself is nothing. But the eye that blinks, that is something. A span of life is nothing. But the man who lives that span, he is something. He can fill that tiny span with meaning, so its quality is immeasurable though its quantity may be insignificant. Do you understand what I am saying? A man must fill his life with meaning, meaning is not automatically given to life.

It is hard work to fill one's life with meaning. That I do not think you understand yet. A life filled with meaning is worthy of rest. I want to be worthy of rest when I am no longer here.”
Chaim Potok, The Chosen
