Although a native Californian, I have had the privilege of traveling to a few exciting places over the years. A combination of a journal entries, shoe boxes of vacation photos, and a boat-load of memories have hung around and provided enjoyable moments off and on. Ultimately, these became the sources from which I draw my ideas, create imagery, and develop storylines.
For years I enjoyed creating short stories for my children and a few of my friends. The decision to actually publish came about with the advent of e-publishing, such as with Smashwords. With perceived publishing obstacles all but eliminated, I decided to dive in and test the waters. It felt good. Encouraged, I threw myself into a serious authorship journey which has also been good.
No matter the outcome of my literary efforts, I love to write and will continue to produce books and publish them. And, if I'm able to write material that holds your interest; work that keeps you turning pages as you follow one exciting and unexpected twist and turn after another; then all the better!
