Raised on a small farm in a rural area, I had a playground that was nothing short of picturesque. The wide open space was a proving ground for creativity. With a forest that may or may not have been haunted, and a creek bed with a Tom & Huck style fishing hole, I took full advantage of the backdrop. My friends and I created worlds in which I played the role of army general, Indian warrior, stunt man, and when certain situations called for it, lover (some roles I played better than others).
As an adult I developed a deep love of history. I gravitate toward Compelling stories of real people, doing amazing things, whether they are documented as fact, or fiction. Combining my adventurous imagination, with the love of compelling stories, I really had no choice but to become an Author. I write Historical Fiction, and Mystery/thriller novels.
