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. This novel was truly a labor of love and a long time coming! Of course, they say that good things come to those who wait, so I suppose this was one of those things that needed more time. Following the release of my award-winning novel was the sequel, Burden of Truth, published in November of 2018 and my YA SciFi-Fantasy, Rise of Gaia, published in August 2019. There are so many more stories swirling through my mind, aching to be put on a page and enjoyed (hopefully) by others.


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