Biography

My first writing adventure is the Silver Series. It is three books following the life and times of Diana, a reincarnated warrior who fights against demons trying to destroy the world and who manages to fall in love with one a few times. The first book in the series is Silver Knight, which is free to download from Smashwords as an epub.

Initially I started teaching computer software, hardware, and networking in the 1990s. After some years that morphed into tutoring high school dropouts for the GED. I found working with at-risk teenagers so rewarding that I changed my undergraduate major to Education. Upon graduating from the University of South Alabama with a B.S., I began teaching high school history. History doesn't have to be boring and I tend to tuck fun and interesting information into my stories. I now live in rural Missouri with my two kids, two dogs, two cats, and several chickens.

    Great tips. I too am an introvert and there is plenty of good info here to get one moving.

    This was a really nice read. I hesitated when I realized the protagonist was 13 but after checking out the sample, was interested enough to buy. It was interesting with a fresh plot, just enough historical detail, and with a satisfying ending. I understand there's a sequel but this book felt fully formed and ended well.
