A Fantasy Author with 2 published books -- I've updated some poems and posted some new poems. Comments & reviews are welcome and wished for! Also with lots of luck my 3rd book will be published very soon. I was influenced by the a collection of short stories that my Uncle gave me. He was an book reviewer and editor at a local Newspaper

    

I am back here at AutIhor's Den  and  I may be writing in more detail about the injury that kept me away so long.   I also will soon be writing a lot again; and hopefully the third novel will also be finished soon. I was hoping that with lots of  luck the 3rd book would have been be published in 2008 but was not able to do anything.

I  will be posting some poems that I wrote in High School.  Oh, and the rest of my Bio is stilll accurate, although I did make a few additions (? have fun if you can find them.)

Bio . . .

I was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island. One of my first jobs after graduating from Katherine Gibbs School of Business was at the Providence Public Library, which provided an excellent opportunity to devour their wonderful collection of Fantasy and Science Fiction. I went on to study Anthropology at Rhode Island College. Still fascinated by differences in cultures, their mythologies, and beliefs, I weave much of that into my writing. I have been writing since High School, and have accumulated a huge stack of bits of ideas and story lines. Most of what I write falls into the Fantasy and Science Fiction genre.  I am also currently a federal government employee and do a lot of writing for work.   Some articles that I have written have been published in the Agency's Magazine.



Birth Place: Providence, RI USA

Accomplishments: None as of yet for writing, only for participating in some Public Service Recognition Weeks for my government job on the Washington DC Mall.
