My mission is to offer entertaining stories that capture the imagination. My books are action adventures, with a touch of magic, and a bit of romance. I want readers to have a chance to learn interesting things about this world, its people, their myths and legends. I feel many adults and young people are looking for stories not set in dystopian worlds, or the violence and death prevalent in many novels today.

With my characters who inspire me to listen to what they have to say, and the magical myths and legends that have always fascinated me with stories I want to tell, the ideas just keep coming! Sometimes, though, I do hit spots in a story that stump me. The best thing for me to do is let it go for a while. I let my imagination take over and soon something interesting happens. One of my characters may suggest a twist I hadn't thought of before—really, it's true. As your characters come to life for you, they may suggest solutions from their own points of view. The other solution for a moment of question in the plot is to turn that point around, reverse the situation, or have one of the other characters handle that plot point in their own way. (less)

“A good novel is the biography of an imaginary person--and when the biography is completed, the person is no longer imaginary; he is as real as his creator”
William Edmund Barrett
