I’m just a person like you. I have a dream I’m following. Reading, for me, has always been pleasurable and one of the greatest joys you can experience. I love the way I’m suddenly finding myself in the stories of others. So much so that now I write my own. It’s such an amazing thing to create a completely different world for someone. My genres range from fantasy to general fiction. The ideas I have come from everyday events and I transform them into another story.
If you read one of my eBooks I would be eternally grateful if you could leave a comment and let others know how you felt about the work. It doesn’t have to be a long comment, you can just leave one word.
I have several eBooks on the market and I’m going to continue to write indefinitely because that’s what I enjoy the most.
