A kid once asked me, "Why do you like books so much?" I looked around the room like an idiot for a few seconds before mumbling the only thing I could come up with in reply, "Real life is just that little bit too boring." As much as I thought it was a stupid answer at the time, I think that it really does sum up what I love about reading and writing. I like a fantasy or sci-fi world that closely mirrors reality, but with just a tweak of unbelievable to it; a believable delusion if you will. I love reading something crazy that still produces a sliver of possibility on the very peripheral of my mind.
I write what I would like to read. If someone else likes it too that is a huge bonus. Most of the things I write are aimed at teens, predominately because I work with kids for a living, but I also write for adults.
I am influenced by just about any fantasy and sci-fi stuff. I love to be amazed when I read. Action, adventure and anything which warps my concepts of the world and challenges my perceptions.

Armour can make a hero of even the most modest soul.
