About Me

My story...sort of

When my 7th grade English teacher likened my writing to Saki, the author of The Interlopers, I was hooked. That defining moment began my foray into mad scribblings of terrible poetry and story starters galore. From that point onward, writing has been a passion though not a profession. Three sons, a career, and many, many years later, the closest I had come to that pinnacle of achievement was writing a published curriculum piece for a zoo and a graduate course in science. Until now. 


My first book, a dystopian fiction titled After the Green Withered, was officially published in May 2018 and won the 2018 Best Indie Book Award in young adult fiction and was quickly followed by the sequel, Burden of Truth. And so, my author journey truly began! With a passion for nature, I work to infuse these elements into my books, weaving relevant themes into captivating stories.


When I'm not writing, you can find me geeking out with movies - I am well-known for quoting my favorite films and fully expect those around me to pipe in with an appropriate rejoinder - , getting lost in a book, walking in the woods, or hanging out with my menagerie of furry and feathered friends. 

I am eager to connect with my readers and welcome you to subscribe to this site and leave your comments. Happy Reading!
