About me

Location United States
Introduction I was born to a family of gypsies of the tribe known as the IBMers, intrepid wizards who roamed the countryside stuffing zeros and ones into metal boxes they knew would one day change the world. I loved life with my tribe, but moving the caravan every few months complicated the difficult business of making friends. The friends I made *in books,* however, could go with me wherever the caravan roamed. Papa and I spent many happy evenings around the campfire. There I learned to play “Authors” as Papa related the wonders of a girl with "Eight Cousins," the tragedy of "The Last of the Mohicans," and the oddity of "The House of Seven Gables." “Authors” gave me the stunning realization that ordinary people could invent friends on paper and then share them with others. At that moment I vowed that I would one day be an author. And I am. I still dream of sending my characters out to roam the world befriending others, just as I once dreamed of living in a House of Seven Gables. Which I now do, proving that dreams do come true.
