I am a writer living in Ocala Florida. I have the imagination of a ten year old, which is why I write fantasy novels, but I have the knowledge of an adult who loves to read, which allows me to write science fiction. Oh yeah. And I blog.
My inner ten year old and I have written two novels, plus short stories. My book of short stories called Becoming the Story represents my first foray into science fiction, but I still enjoy the infinite freedom of fantasy.
My first fantasy novel, Thief of Hades, is based on the Greek myth of the underworld ferryman Charon. Charon is an unsung hero in Greek mythology, but to his credit, a moon of Pluto got named after him. If he was important enough to be a moon, I thought he should have his own novel. (He agreed!)
My soon-to-be-released novel is a psychological fantasy about a troubled 11 year old boy who is drawn into another world in a search for the ghost of his younger brother.
The novel, called The Ghosts of Chimera, was recently accepted by Rooster and Pig Publishing and is set to be released in October or November 2015. In addition to my novels, I have also written an e-book on rediscovering creativity in writing called A Trail of Crumbs to Creative Freedom.
As for my “real life,”I moved to Ocala, Florida from South Carolina about two years ago, and have been absorbing the environment as inspiration for my fiction. I have a cat with a soft belly and tufted ears who rules my life. But a mutiny is coming soon, little does she know.
Follow my blog, and I will tell you how it goes.
