Born in the bubbling cauldron of Tanzania, where he picked up his first pen at the age of two and chewed. He's progressed much since then. He wrote his first story at 5, a knockoff of all the prince-saves-princess stories he'd read at the time. Life did not rest. It took him to India, then frigid Michigan. The shock, according to parent-sources, was a character building exercise. Lowhim, however, only remembered clenched fingers trying to write. Shorts about teen angst kept him going.

Hmm, what to say, what to say? I'm a mother of three boys, which takes a lot of time and a lot of energy, especially as two of them are teenagers and the younger isn't even into the double digits yet. Although their father and I are not married we've managed to put nineteen years behind us and have walked the hills and mountains of life together with all the laughter, the crying fits and yelling a relationship needs and demands. I've so far only published the one book (which is need of some heavy editing) but I am currently working on two separate series. I'm hoping to have one finished before the end of the year. It's hard finding the time to write, especially during the school months when our lives seem ... read more

The only way I can honestly describe myself, is how I see myself; and you can be sure that this image of myself will differ greatly from how others see me, or how I actually am.
How I see myself is as something like an iconoclast. I see myself as a humorist and a very curious fool.
Outside of 'ezine' publications, a story that was produced on 'Tales from the Darkside' titled "Bigalow's Last Smoke", some script revisions here and there for a vancouver film company, and my own wiki site (which is primarily poetry), my primary livelihood has been over 25 years in the Film and Television industry in the USA and Canada.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: I was employed in our Criminal Justice System for a cumulative 20 years as a probation officer, with 5 of those years as a chief probation officer. I authored the concept of “Shock Incarceration” which became law in Kansas in 1970, and then was adopted in numerous jurisdictions in the U.S. and also spread to Europe—it is currently identified in the U.S. as “Boot Camp” [as the means to “shock” the young offender—and a total distortion of my original intent—like many ideas, once released, they take on a life of their own]. I was the Democrat candidate for Congress, District 21, TX, 2000. I would most define myself as a Social Ecologist-- [albeit my degree is in Psychology]. My ... read more

I'm a teenager trapped in the body of a thirty-something! I write the kind of books I like to read - something achingly romantic with twists and turns, topped with a good dose of escapism and individuality. I love reading teen fiction: I adored The Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games Trilogy, The Sookie Stackhouse novels, The Shiver Series, The Hush Hush Saga. I hope my books (as and when I finish them and publish them here!) have a similar flavour to these great novels. I live in England and work as an English teacher and this is reflected in my work which is as English as a pot of tea and a plate of scones! If people are kind enough to read my work, I truly hope they enjoy it as much as I do.
