Hello and thanks for joining me on this journey

A few years ago I found myself at a crossroad. The path I followed from there, the one that took me back to my childhood dream of being a full time writer, has been difficult at times, but always rewarding. I have now completed five novels and have a sixth in the works. “Completed” may be stretching it. A novel is really never complete until there are worn copies on shelves around the world.

Like the stories I tell, writing is a journey. Every step of this journey, I learn something new. How to better tell the story, how to better tell people about the story, how to inform readers when I have something new for them. Writing comes easy to me, promoting my work doesn’t, but I’m learning.

Thank you so much for visiting this page. I hope that you find something you like here. Soon, I will be updating with links to free stuff to read. Check back every once in a while. Grab on and come along for the ride. Let’s see where the journey takes us.
