My Stories

I write adventures for those in search of a good story. My novels fall in the Fantasy genre, but many people consider them Sci-fi too. Each story is written with what I look for when I read a book: action, adventure, twists and turns, love, heroes, vicious enemies, fighting (weapons and hand to hand combat). I write because I want to share the stories that are inside of me. I hope you enjoy the adventures as much as I love writing them!

Did I mention how much I enjoy self-publishing, even with people's first thought being that my book must not be that good because I did (which I am happy to say that I - and a lot of other authors - are proving wrong, and many readers are noticing!).   Joe Konrath put up a great blog on "The Myth of the Best Seller" and it got me thinking about why I took this path.  The biggest turn off for me for traditional publishing is that they(traditional publisher) think they deserve a bigger cut than me after they decide whether or not my book is worth their time.  Sorry, I don't think so - I've already done that.

However what really keeps my energy to up to continue writing and self-publishing, the BIGGEST reason for me to self-publish - and I do love self-publishing(for many reasons), is this:  it's 100% me!  

Love it or hate, I did it and I'm proud of what I've accomplished.

Things have moved along quicker than I had expected, which means that my distributor: has it available for purchasing.  It'll still be about 2-4 weeks for it to get to the other stores, but you may purchase Taken: Blades of the Ytinu Srebas from them directly!  Have a GREAT day!

Two Weeks!

Taken: Blades of the Ytinu Srebas:

Ava was taken from the world she knew, tortured, trained, and almost killed by Will - a power-hungry Lanigiro. Wasn’t she? Ava awakens in the world that should feel like home with her best friend Ashley by her bedside, but it’s not right, something is missing. Ava is not at all certain about what has happened, but one thing is for sure her life has forever changed.

Two weeks to go!  I am so very excited!  I've been getting a lot of positive feedback about book one and anticpiation for book two.  Thank so much for everyone's support!

I posted a page for Chapter One to the left.  Enjoy!

30 Days!

 After being taken, enduring excruciating pain,  forced to fight for her survival, finding acceptance, and a hero that she never dreamed of, she is left dying in his arms.  Or was she?  Was it all a dream?   She has awakened in her room with uncertainty of who she is, and what has happened. 

 In approximately 30 days I will be releasing Taken: Blades of the Ytinu Srebas! The cover is almost done, the final revision is almost completed, and I am quite happy about that! I can't wait to bring you the next book in  Ava's story.

Happy New Year!

Here's to a New Year full of excitement and dreams come true.  I look forward to the adventures I have ahead of me as well as the adventures that I will be writing!  May the Lord keep us strong through our trials, blessed each day that we have, and help us stay on a path to uphold our new year resolutions.
