What is your writing process?
I find that my writing goes in spurts. Like waves, somewhat consistent, but always harboring an element of change.

I grew up with the wide open spaces of the Southwest at my door step. Every weekend was a new adventure.

I've always had a strong background in writing. I began publishing books for the Children's market in 2010. Since then, I have published over a dozen titles.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a new Science Fiction trilogy that intertwines Greek Mythology and the "can-do" spirit of a few main characters. - More updates on this project later.
