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!

There are various ways you can check out my books. I have posted Chapter one of each of my books on the left side of this blog . On the right are the links to where you can buy my ebooks! Up top are the links to Smashwords.com for each book.
There are a lot of reasons why I give Smashwords so much attention. Without them, I'd probably still be wondering how to make my books available. Not only do they format and distribute my books (to Barnes&nobles, Apple, Sony, diesel, and Kobo) for me, but they also do their customers a great benefit. They allow me to sell my books as ebooks to you at a reasonable price ($2.99) and they allow you to download 20% of my books so that you can decide if my book is worth your time. As an author, I think this is awesome, mostly because I hate writing the short descriptions. (I think they're very stressful. The short desription pretty much ties with titles as my least favorite part of writing/publishing) However, a 20% sample allows for people to see that they will enjoy my books. As a reader, this is wonderful, because I hate short descriptions. Some are very captivating, but then I start reading and think "uhg". Where as others didn't captivate me, but I liked the cover, so I read the 20% or whatever the author allowed for me to read and I am glad I did. I am very much a judge a book by its cover reader, which means I have picked some not so good books to read, but less and less now.
I know. I know. I need to lay off the Dr.Pepper, but I love it so much! Plus, I really want you to know that the 20% sample is a great advantage. To the reader and the author. So, here I am pushing the love to Smashwords one more time. If you're a writer, and want to know a great site to publish an ebook check out www.Smashwords.com! If you're a reader who loves great stories that don't cost too much, check out smashwords.com and take them up on their 20% sample (well up to 20% - the author decides). I think you'll be surprised with all the talent that is out there! :)
