Alongside this, I have begun work on the all-important Book Two in The Northland Series – 'Winter Warrior.' With so many threads and storylines to play with I am looking forward to long winter days holed up in my writing den. (less)

Calvin Coolidge
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
