This website was designed to introduce you to my books, and to give you an idea of who I am, as a writer and as a person through a brief look into my life, my interests and the motivations and impulses behind the characters and plot lines I have developed.

You will also find links to my on-going blog, Facebook, Google, and Twitter sites. If you wish to make comments or establish a dialogue, please feel free to contact me directly. Writing is, after all, about the relationship between the writer and the reader.

I've also recorded a message for you that you can easily listen to below.
