I have always lived in my make-believe world. It was the best kept secret, until I started writing, and now everyone knows I'm schizo, ha. Well, hopefully, my imaginary friends will entertain you and bring you some diversion.
In my "real" world I like riding motorcycles, snow skiing, snow boarding, sailing boats, flying airplanes and gliders, and most any activity that is outdoors. I wish I had the opportunity to climb Mount Everest, or search for Noah's Ark on Mount Arafat.
As you can surmise, I like a good challenge, and writing is certainly that. In the end, my hope is that you enjoy venturing into my make-believe world as we go on adventures around the world, and maybe even into space (hint about one of my adventure books in the making).
Finally, I must confess that the most challenging puzzle I found is the human heart. What makes us tick? Why do we do the things we do, sometimes with full conviction, sometimes with hesitation? What makes us happy and sad, sometimes both at the same time? These are questions that I like to broach in my writing. Relationships are complicated, but only because we are complicated. To understand a relationship we must understand the "other" person, and to that end we must understand ourselves first because with all of our differences, we also have much in common. Under standing ourselves, our strengths and weaknesses, is the first step to understanding others.
