I started writing when I was young. I was inspired by most books that I read, mostly fantasy, that I was able to find around the house or in local books stores. My favorite series growing up was the "Circle of Magick" series by Deborah Doyle and James D. McDonald. Movies have also been a large contributing factor to my inspiration, of course, watching "Back to the Future" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" well over 50 times was sure to leave some lasting impression.
In my teenage years I was addicted to my Sega Genesis and Dungeons and Dragons. I stand by my role-playing years, gifting me a strong ability in creating characters and making them appear more real than your average hack and slash deal.
I went to college and focused on Ballet, anthropology and English literature with an emphasis in creative writing and classics. I eventually married my college heartthrob and settled in the Des Moines, IA area.
My goal is to eventually catch the eye of an agent and follow a full-time writing career. For now, I offer the first book in any series for free in digital form. I am currently working on the sequels listed below, a Gothic fairytale and more RPG material for the free tabletop RPG I created. Keep tabs on me. I may one day surprise you.
