I never thought I'd be a writer, much less publish a book. I always wanted to be a veterinarian. I guess life just had other plans for me. When my husband and I decided to start a family, vet school pretty much went out the window. I used to work with a vet who had three children while going through vet school. To this day, she is my hero.
Two years ago, I began writing a story that, for whatever reason, was stuck in my head for almost a year. I have been an avid romance reader for a long time, and the idea took hold to - why not? - write my own!
It has been a long and difficult journey from my first sentence to a completed, and hopefully polished, manuscript.
The story, titled Yellowstone Heart Song, is se ... read more

I write about people, their relationships and the dynamics within. I feature my work on website conversantwoman.com
I enjoy illustrating the wide range of emotions experienced in life by people of both genders and the permutations of social and personal cultural influences. I like to reach out and to make contact with readers walking beside them and not leaving them before I have evoked within them thought provoking emotions strung between tragedy and joy. I am a person touched by the irony of life and human frailty. Writing is as much a need for me as a want. I find myself traversing internalised continents exploring the complexities of life.
Sometimes I have experienced life to be hard hitting, start ... read more

I have been writing on and off since I was a shy lad hiding under the bed and scribbling in an out of date diary (I think it was about my space travels). Most of my works have been either plays populated with grotesques who stumble around ruins and those odd places we forget about or epic tales of those last Roman legionaries as they falter and fall at the end of Empire.
Over the last three years, I have embarked on a series of plays which I have entitled 'The Ostraka Plays' and in which I am exploring that space where the irrational and the seductive collide. I remain fascinated by a poetics which allows an imagination to populate a forgotten nook in history outside our conventions and expectations. In these ... read more

At the age of ten he had a dream in which he saw his future in advance. As events began to come true, he spent the better part of two decades investigating how this type of precognitive event could happen, making it possible to receive information from the future.
He eventually discovered that this is a perfectly natural ability which everyone has. However, it generally lies undiscovered and unused. The key to unlocking and developing this power is to make definite decisions about the kind of future you wish to experience. This explains why beliefs become self-fulfilling prophesies, and why people with goal ... read more
