The whole thing just sort of happened at a time in my life where I needed a big change. I've always loved being creative, writing, drawing. I've written things over the years for fun, and I even tried to right a screenplay years ago. When I went through a little identity crisis I decided I need to do something defining for myself. The result was In Search of Lucy which has been an Amazon bestseller a few times. So I feel very thankful things worked out.(less)

“It’s so strange how an image, or thought, can just bring you instantly back to a memory. You find yourself feeling the same feelings you felt back then, like they never left. Feelings you thought you’d buried a long time ago.”
