My journey to become a writer began in 8th grade, when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and pulled from school to recover. During this time, I was left alone for hours on end and it was then that I discovered new friends within the pages of books.

But I kept going and now I am finalizing my first indie novel, with sequels to come, and two other series along with a fiction based blog.

I'll admit, if you've never read a murder mystery and know nothing about the genre you probably should try writing something else, but if you love to read urban fantasy, then write urban fantasy.
Write what you think is worth reading. If you don't believe in your project, no one else will. (less)

If that doesn't work I play with my kittens or work on another project. When push come to shove sometimes I just force myself to write words.

Excerpt from Lost



Lost Cal cringed as the manacles clinked against the stone wall of his cell, pausing a second to make sure no one had noticed. Most likely the other prisoners were too far gone with fatigue and malnutrition to notice a little extra noise, and the guard lying on the floor of his cell was truly unconscious. Cal bent down and checked to make sure the man was still breathing.He was but, t Read more of this blog post »

This book is great. Not suggesting otherwise. BUT, the beginning is painfully slow due to an extensive use of description. Once past the first few chapters, the author uses less and less description giving the plot a chance to pick up.

I couldn't keep up with the novel, but like in a good way. It was just go go go from page one to the end. The characters were well rounded which made me care about the outcome. Great writing. ...more

Great read with unique characters. I appreciated that the characters were three-dimensional which is a rare treat now days. Always struggled to put it down when I needed to go to sleep. A+ all around.

It has been a long time since a book kept me on the edge of my seat. This one did a great job of just that. I liked enjoying short stories that still managed to pack in the thrill and intrigue. Great read.
