I am 63 years of age and Leap Year is my first children's novel. My second novel - Christmas Presence comes out in November 2012.
My first novel was about 9/11. 9/11: Official Complicity by Michael Rowland. Daniel M Warloch his an anagram of Michael Rowland.
I didn't want to associate a serious novel with a children's so I am using a pen name.
Both 9/11 and Leap Year are at the early sages of being made into a movie - watch this space.
I am currently writing the sequel to Leap Year.

As a boy he loved the thrill of riding his pushbike much too fast, and he knew he wanted to be a pilot the day he saw an RAF flypast zoom overhead. Fresh out of school at 17, John joined the Fleet Air Arm, where he relished the experience of learning to fly a wide variety of aircraft.
John toured the world on HMS Hermes and completed eight years with the Navy before joining the Zambia Air Force. The experiences that followed as a bush pilot in Africa made his Navy days look like a vicarage tea party. He met his Trinidadian wife Janet in 1964 while on a posting in Malta and they have now retired to Malaysia.

I was born in 1974, Houston, Texas, and started writing at an early age. My first book was written when I was eight years old for an elementary school assignment. It was called Silly Excuses—a book about the wonderful excuses young children can tell their parents when they are in trouble. Not only did I pass the assignment with an awesome grade, but also my teacher loved the book so much that she had it published in the school library. She was the first to praise my writing and encourage me to become an novelist. I have been writing ever since, completing a few short stories, and starting a few unfinished novels—life circumstances slowing me down. However, writing is my first love, and Lilac ... read more

"For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea."

There are two things that completely fascinate me - the creative process and sex. I love laying in bed, in the dark, imagining things. These stories are the result of that. They come from that place - the dark. I like to think my stories contain an element of artistry (don't all?). But honestly, I write from a place that sometimes I don't understand. It is a journey. And I hope you enjoy it along with me.
And thank you.

I blame my mother for my fascination with books. Growing up in northern Indiana there wasn’t much to do and I’d often complained of my boredom. My mom handed me a book and told me to shush. I’ve been obsessed ever since. Though I spent most of my time in between the pages, fantasizing of other worlds, I didn’t write my first book until I’d had three children—just in time to have not a moment to myself. In an attempt to keep my sanity, I write. My favorite stories contain strong heroes and heroines, fighting an attraction stronger than both of them.
I live in eastern North Carolina with my husband and our three children in chaotic bliss.
