I love to read books and poetry, along with writing them. What can be more fun than putting on paper stories you develop in your mind?
Although I've written stories for years, it's just recently that I decided to try self-publishing.
My first novel 'Always' was published on Oct 2012. It is a fantasy/romance story that takes place in England.
In July 2013 I published a book of poetry Stepping Stones. In Dec 2013 I published my second novel, The Lone Hero and my first children's rhyme book. Continuing to publish, in 2015 I published the first of the Dimidium series, also a fantasy/romance story about a race that's half human and half vampire.
I've also added fantasy stories to two horror books, When the Lights Go Out and Strange Portals.

The Mysteries of the Human Body

The older I get, the more my friends and relatives have health or injury issues that I've never heard of. I've come to believe that the human body is much more delicate than we think we are.

I talked about the injuries from the last two years and my slow climb to recovery, but this year was the most bizarre.

Who knows what triggers cause health issues?

I've known for years that I'm lactose intoler... Read more of this blog post »

Marveous Tale

What a fun story. The horror and fear that built within Aubrey held my attention, and I read this tale in 2 days. If you enjoy vampire stories, you'll really enjoy this read.
