As a substitute of a profile I find hard to make in a reasonable amounts of words, I'd like to offer my philosophy of writing.
In as few words as possible that is what my books are about.
I wrote them for myself, I personally enjoy re-reading them, I enjoy creating new chapters in on going themes, and I decided to publish them on the chance some few might enjoy them. I did not write them with the intent of publication, I did not publish them with dreams of avarice, and I only, truly hope that there are readers out there who enjoy them as much as I do.
I cannot and I will not promise my readers will like my hobby, agree with my views, or find any entertainment in what I have written. My books were not written for everyone, hence not everyone will like them.
I will do my best to offer the best 'product' to my readers as I am able. I can not yet promise a mistake free experience, but I am one who is never satisfied. Each time I re-read my own words I find changes I wish to make. And I will do my best to leave notice when new editions are available.
Because just as each work I offer to the public might never quite seem finished, the ideas behind them were a process of creation and re-creation. Each thing I bring into the world has been written and re-written time and time again, and they never seem perfect to me no matter how many times they are re-imagined.
Just because you have liked something I have written be it free or not, is not a reason why you will like what else is written. My writing is an organic process, many stories have nothing save a beginning or a future image in my head I wish to make a world in order to play out.
However from that moment after I begin all bets are off, the story can and will evolve from there and become whatever it and the characters may make of it. Just as I can not argue that I am like most any writer, nor can I see any reason in trying to be. I see no need to be 'like' anything, why should my books be 'like' any other book, and I see no reason for 'my books' to be 'like' my other books. Why should the next book be what worked for the one before? Why should I worry if my readers will have the same choices as me as to what 'would have been interesting'?
Do not buy my books without trying them, but also do not buy them if you are going to be disappointed if you don't get what you are expect.. Be it a thrilling plot-twisted action film in print, or a heartfelt romance, my books will not be exactly one thing. I make no promises in my writing but it can also be said I do not fear to follow the chanced inspiration, even if it might re-write the entire unborn ending of a story.

- Eyes of the Wolf
on June 01, 2012
We've all seen, heard, or read the tales of werewolves at one time or another. It usually starts out in the moors on a dark foggy night with the unwary traveler and the fated encounter that will change his reality for the remainder of his short life. If that worn and weary plot is your thing, than this book ain't for you. Because this is not your Grandmama's fairy tale of the big bad wolf.
This was an excellent book that plays out as is so rarely done from the perspective of the big bad wolf himself. Personally werewolves are part of a genre I generally don't like and often avoid reading. However, Eyes of the Wolf is a sharp twist and a clear departure from the traditional elements of so many other stories with teeth. This was an excellent read and book I enjoyed a great deal. I highly recommend it for both werewolf fans and those people who are looking for something different from the standard literary fare.
