Thanks for visiting my Smashwords bio page. A lifelong love of books lead me (as most authors) to writing. I'm not ashamed to admit I use reading and writing as an escape from reality. The constant chaos moving around out there can't reach me when I'm immersed in books and writing.
Although I’ve always felt partial to reading and writing horror I really wanted to give my drama, Even In Stillness There Is Rhythm a shot. It was an opportunity to really work on character development, which for me is the most important facet of a story. I really like my characters in that story. Especially Johnny. He was a labor of love. How could I write about a man who is kind and sensitive, yet still a strong masculine figure? I think I pulled it off okay. You can read 40% of my novel for free on this site, and please check out my other stories, My Sister Shelby story about a young girl in the lazy summer of 1976, and Vamp.0, another version of the old legend.
Blessings and all the best

Shelby is an eight-year-old girl whose love and dedication to nature's creatures forges a bond with them that goes far beyond the ordinary. A sweet and touching story, it's a great read for all animal lovers, and anyone who respects the raw power, beauty, and intelligence of nature. Simply written, charmingly realistic, easily believable--for we all have a little bit of Shelby...or the wild desire to be her...tucked away somewhere in our hearts. Highly recommended! -hlmontgomery
