Call me Trickster. My work ranges from children G to adults R (I probably incorrectly rate these). Read accordingly.


Oh, I think I've done it. Yes, I'm certain I have. One aspect of writing that I love is the twisty trickery, the unpredictability, taking the reader one direction only to bring them around to an entirely unsuspected ending. Yes, I think I've mastered it in some of my works and I like to show it off once in a while.

Writing has been my life since I learned to hold a pencil.  Poetry was always a favorite while I was younger, then I started writing short stories, leading up to novels.  I love writing and fully enjoy becoming my characters and living through their experiences.  Sometimes I think I would rather write than breath, It's very difficult for me to quit writing, though many times I swear I am quitting.  I guess you could say writing is my drug of choice.

Animals play a part in most of my books, especially those for young readers. My preferences are dogs and horses.

Altruism is also part of my life. Currently, I'm sponsoring a scholarship contest tied to the first two books in my series, The Gifted Ones. The contest begins in September 2014 and ends in May 2015. Visit my website to find out more. I'm hoping to give away three scholarships in May 2015 from the sales of the two books.
