Born and raised in Southern California, the diagnosis of hydrocephalus at birth should have killed Ani, or worse, left her blank to the world. Her strength of spirit, parents’ love, and a miracle all combined to overcome that prognosis within nine months. From this almost impossible beginning, she has developed into all-around person with the technical knowledge and analytical mind of a programmer, creative and detailed orientation of a writer/editor, and aesthetic instincts of a designer/photographer.

Her writing career started when a friend in Cyprus made her promise to stop throwing away her writings because she thought they weren't good enough. After returning to the States, she set out to finish a single horse story and get it published

My favorite episode involved Harm going undercover as a Marine. Mac became his superior officer in that case. They were so used to being equals that it was fun watching Harm blow it a couple of times when he forgot protocol.

Too bad we don't have an official ending to their story.(less)

If I get on a short dry spell, I let it pass as usually its because I'm doing something computer-related or dealing with something else in life.

If it's been more time than I like, I will say to myself "Okay, close your eyes and just be quiet." I listen to whatever is around me while trying to clear the noise in my head. I try to concentrate on the book that I'm working on. If that doesn't work, I switch to thinking about a single character, idea, or even a single word.

If I'm still stuck, I'll try reading or doing something that either interests or inspires me.(less)

The sequel was more engaging and better told in some ways than the first book. I dived in and didn't want to come up for air as the story moved along at a natural pace instead of the urgent-slow-urgent pattern of the first. So why only fours? Without ...more

Nice escape from reality.

I did find the pacing a little off. Beginning urgent, middle not so much, end urgent and intense. The middle part didn't lag per say, as there was a beautiful world with wonderful characters to get lost in. There were also a
