Born in Ontario Canada, I have been writing for as long as I can remember. Both of my parents instilled a deep love of stories and the written word in me which I wove into narratives among the subtle chaos that is rural life.
I pursued my love of reading and language into post-secondary where I obtained an Honors Specialization in English Language & Literature, followed by a Masters of Library & Information Science.
Now that I have the time and monetary stability to support my craft, I am finishing, editing, and self-publishing my stories.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Growing up in rural Ontario, Canada provided excellent fodder for the imagination. My parents both instilled a love of reading in my from a young age and a passion for discovery alongside it. The presence of nature in my early years established a respect and appreciation for the wild world beyond modern human reality. As such, preservation of and awareness of nature is a fundamental theme in my writing.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest books (the Rules Trilogy) is an exploration of the control that we have over physical and spiritual reality. Fundamentally, it attempts to address whether humanity is capable of transcending the basic tenants for survival that enabled us to get this far but may now hinder us from further development.
A mysterious branch of the human species, one capable of transforming into animals, is gathering for war. Irene Melina supports her father's campaign for freedom from Human oppression until she is kidnapped by a young man in a black panther's body. Now, hope for a peaceful future rests on Irene successfully navigating two worlds and her own confusing emotions.
