Writing a bio of myself is difficult because I often feel as if I don’t really know who I am. I am a collection of characters and places that have touched me as I have traveled down the (often bumpy) road of life.
There’s only been one constant thing about me that truly feels like “me” and that is the desire to create. Whether it’s writing, photography, filmmaking costume & prop design, or one of the other couple of dozen things that I like to do I just can’t stop creating. I’m drawn to it more than any other pursuit in life.
Just like everything else about me my influences are a little all over the board. I would say that I admire and often imitate Douglas Adams’ sense of humor, but lots of my works are also in the simple and elegant style of Andre Norton fused with some of the gritty details of writers like Hal Colbatch or Larry Niven.
I don’t write as a career, I know that during my lifetime I will likely never make any real money from my writing but I do it because I have stories to tell. All that I hope from my work is that people enjoy it. A quick fan letter is my reward for what I do.

This was such a great book. Carson was Intelligent, likable, and flawed. The story was fast paced and well written. Wonderful surprise ending, without being over the top. Surprising and subdued...Also, I did enjoy the fact that the female characters did not fit the stereotype of the era that the story was set in, without being unbelievable. They were written as whole people, and not just a plot device, as were all the other characters. I can't wait to read more of Carson's exploits.

An interesting take on an alternate Sherlock Holmes. Not an upper class but poor, being an orphan as opposed to having family, losing his "Watson" and pretty much his life with him. Hope to see more of his adventures in the future.
The writing was captivating. I think I read the book in a matter of hours, kept my interest throughout.
