I am an adventure-loving author with interests in science and literary fiction. I discovered I wanted to be an author when I was eleven years old.

Readers will learn more about the main characters, and about Yusay. I’m hoping they will find it an excellent read.
I’m currently working on book three. I have the first draft about one-third to one-half written. A severe illness in my family and the demands of my (paid) work necessitated that I put the book on hold in October.
I will resume writing in January. My working title is The Shadow Queen.
