I've been writing stories almost since I was able to pick up a jumbo crayon and put words on paper. I love what I do and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share these tales with my readers.
My work is typically classified as young adult literature, if only because the stories are clean and most of the characters are young. There's more to it than that, though.
Every book I've ever personally loved has been what I'd call ageless. That is, it contains something that can touch the heart of a child while he's still too young and raw to appreciate subtlety, but there's also something in it that he can still feed on when he's old and gray, although perhaps not the same things. It's my aspiration to write stories like that.
In fact, the majority of my readers are adults who want to read something that will uplift them and make them feel glad to be alive that day. We all need beautiful stories, and without them we suffer.

I am usually not a fan of Sci-Fi, but I began reading this book and had to make myself stop to sleep on one occasion, and to go to church on another occasion, and then I literally could not put the book down!
Tycho is set in the future, and many things are different. When dealing with time, there is always one thing that doesn't change-human nature. Even though the locations and events are extremely different, the core of the story holds fast and true: we will survive!
There were times that I was so into the story, which is full of twists and turns, that I know I gasped out loud, because I scared my husband, who was soundly asleep beside me! Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen, well...
This book has something for everyone! Science Fiction action, Space travel, romance and adventure are all masterfully blended together to produce a piece which is in one word-AWESOME! This would make a great movie! Also, being a teacher, I can see how this would be a great book to read and discuss as a class.
I thoroughly enjoyed it!
