I’m a writer, a mother and manager of chaos. I try to do too many things at once, like so many of us, but it all usually works out. I live in a 200-year-old house that keeps me very busy. I love writing. It’s what I’m passionate about and what I want to do above all other things.

I enjoy the storyline very much, but do find the writing a bit problematic. This book could have used the services of an editor to pick up on the (many) stylistic and grammatical errors. Some of the sentences are rather convoluted, and in a great many cases the author uses words incorrectly. Otherwise, this is an engaging, enjoyable read. I just wish it had undergone a good edit or two before being released.

Chosen is a truly enjoyable read with an endearing hero. After the introductions of the key characters and the scene setting, the story gallops at an amazing pace, stirring up a hornet's nest of spirits and creatures from the underworld which provide the backdrop where graphic fights, nail-biting flight and heart-stopping danger escalate to a resounding climax. For fans of sci-fi fantasy, a must-read.

Dynan and his twin brother Dain don’t know it, but they are born in fulfillment of an ancient prophecy, and if they can’t live up to their destiny, it could mean the end of the world, brought about by the demon Belial. It all beings when Dynan finds a dangerous talisman while taking part in an archeological dig, and it ends up with him needing to find the originator of his line while in the spirit world.
It is really hard to describe the basic plot of this book without ending up giving spoilers, so I’ll have to leave it there. What I will say is that this is an amazing work of science fantasy (a fantasy story set in a science fiction world, I guess is the way to describe it) – the characters are developed wonderfully, the history is outlined enough to help the reader understand what is happening, and there is a perfect blend of character development and action to keep fans of both schools of writing happy. Anyone who enjoys a good story, especially in a science fantasy vein, should absolutely love this book - I highly recommend it and suggest you take the time to track it down and read it as soon as possible.
