Dragon's Blood is my first book as well as the first piece in my Denicalis Dragon Chronicles series. It began as a single story for my oldest son and has turned into a series of novels, full of adventure, magic, good vs. evil, and of course, dragons! So far there are four books in the series: Dragon's Blood, The Prisoner, Dragon's Tear, and Dragon's Breath - these are all live and ready to be downloaded for your reading pleasure. Book five, the final part of the story and as yet unnamed, should be available mid/late 2012.
In between writing book three (Dragon's Tear) and book four (Dragon's Breath), I decided to take a break and work on another novel, which I started when I was writing Dragon's Blood but put aside for a while in order to concentrate on the series. While on break between novels, I quickly discovered I could no longer wait to write my next story, and after six months or so, "My Blissful Life As a Submariner's Wife" was born. It began as a humorous look at my marriage to a submariner but eventually (thankfully) turned into an inspirational look into one woman's life as a military dependent. It's meant for multiple groups - dependent wives who think they're alone in their struggles, women going through (or having gone through) a divorce who need some encouragement to take that next giant step into their future as a dependent woman, or civilians who think military families have an easy life because of the many benefits etc that they enjoy while supporting our country. Although some may not agree on the how's or why's behind "My Blissful Life", it should be read for what it is - one woman's story about her journey through life. Right or wrong, hopefully it will encourage someone, somewhere, to never give up when the going gets rough.
I grew up in South Florida, joined the Navy at 18 and found myself stationed far away from friends and family in paradise known as Hawaii. I met a submariner there, we married, and had three beautiful children before we moved back to the mainland. I now live in Connecticut and have found an unexpected passion in both writing as well as visiting schools, encouraging children to read, write, and to never fear following their dreams!
