I love books of all kinds—lately funny ones are my faves. But who couldn't curl up with a good mystery or romance?

My writing comes from a childhood of playing too much She-Ra and watching too much Spock. When Belle gasped at the library the Beast showed her, so did I! Growing up, I spend so much time I spent there, I could have been the phantom of the public library.

I hand-wrote my first manuscript at sixteen, scribbling in long notebooks on train rides while on vacation in India. I'm a longtime member of RWA, SCBWI, SIC. If you are looking for writing help, consider joining your local organizations!

What is in a name? Why call her RYAN?
This is a question I get asked a lot... Here is the answer and I hope it will surprise you.
1. Genderbias is a real thing. We all know this. When I came up with the name Ryan, it was deliberate use for a girl stepping into the role of King Arthur. Throughout my childhood, I’ve been told 'NO.' You can’t do that because it’s too hard. You can’t become a techie because girls don’t do well in math. Well, I did. So can Ryan.
2. The idea that a girl can be a sword-toting savior isn’t new, but when I played with King Arthur's gender, I played with the idea—anyone can be a leader, a king. This glass ceiling is still something we all struggle to break through.
3. I love, love, love Shakespeare’s Twelvth Night. In this play, Viola disguises herself as "Cesario." Viola falls in love with Duke Orsino, Duke Orsino loves Olivia, and Olivia loves Viola disguised as Cesario. When I named Ryan, Vane, and Matt, I created another love triangle and played with the idea who you love isn’t based on gender. It is loyalty, faith, and that spark of something special.(less)

This question has been hiding in my dashboard for well... awhile! I do love the Merlin stories. I'm still working on Merlin's story and hope you liked the Gods of Merlin! Gods of Merlin was a bit of a reset for Ryan and Vane. They will be coming back in Book Three. After that? It's always open. They are so fun together :) And thank you for letting me know how much you enjoyed them!(less)

Happy New Year 2023!

Dear Readers,Tee hee! If you've kept up with me, you know that I've been working away on a new YA. This one is a contemporary YA with a lot of my signature hi-jinks. I like to push myself and my writing. So, I hope you'll watch out for it. After all, Shakespeare said it best-- “I am but mad north-north-west. When the wind is southerly,I know a hawk from a handsaw.”
