My Story:
My early years were spent growing up in sophisticated California. In the third grade my parents moved to Florida where I spent the awkward, teenage years. I began writing creatively in the third grade as far back as I can remember, though I probably scribbled a few stories before then.

My language arts teacher would inevitably read my stories aloud in class, because he was impressed by their uniqueness and creativity. I enjoyed listening to my stories be told and sometimes I was asked to read them myself in front of the class (Dread).

By my college years, I decided on the University of Central Florida and achieved a BA in English. I was an Honorary student (at first) and won the Best Fiction Award of 1997, published in the campus literary magazine: Cypress Dome. It is still found in libraries across the USA today. I entered the Laurel Hemingway short story contest the subsequent year and won Semi-Finals. I was elated.

I wrote a series of short stories and poetry in my twenties and joined the military (which ended in about a year on an honorable mutual discharge) and sojourned east bound. I ended up in Korea, Nepal, Tibet, China, and Thailand. I spent eight years in the orient. In my thirties while still in Thailand, I began my spiritual re-assesment. I wrote three religious/spiritual books in that period.

By thirty four and still in Thailand, I was bitten by the novel bug and wrote the fantasy romanceThe Guardians of the Gate and its sequel Prisoners of Pride. Before the year ended, I had a dream which inspired the characters for my third novel that year, an historical romance, The Day the Flowers Died. 

The following year, 2010, I returned to the United States and began my sci-fi romance novel, The Hunted of 2060. I also returned to a brother who I loved dearly passing away. It was detrimental for the first few months. But our family slowly recovered, yet is never fully healed.

There are a lot of questions as we grow. Some of the truths I have discovered seep into my writing, whether it is a spiritual book, poem, short story, or novel. My hope is to write four novels a year. My love is in the historical and paranormal, scifi romance genres.

If I die with a plentiful supply of novels I have written on my shelf (whether self published of not, whether on the best sellers list or not), I would die happy. It is what I was designed to do. WRITE. Write the stories of voices that can't be heard. Write the stories that need to be told. I am a story teller.
