About me

Occupation Novelist
Location Minor Outlying Islands
Introduction To date, I have published the first novel in my YA series: Wireless in the Fabric of Time. It was released in January 2007, and can be ordered through Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Wireless: Life Doesn’t Rewind Across The Universe, the second book in the series, will be published sometime in 2010. While working on my novels, I started a series of blogs. First, “Totally YA” focuses on all things young adults; another, “Up Close & Personal,” is an ongoing conversation with authors and others from various genres; and the third, “A View From the Top,” attempts to offer insight into agents’ and publishers’ points of view. The response to the blogs has been exciting and encouraging. It seems my readers enjoy an open conversation with authors, agents and publishers of all ages, in which the blogger’s voice takes a back seat. The free expression that results has been enlightening to me as well, as it happens to have expanded my interests to fiction. Goodbye Bling-Bling, Hel---looo, Jailbird! will be my first attempt at non-fiction. Look for 2010 release date.

Favorite Books Books are so much a part of my life, I can't imagine what it would be like without them. Through them we are able to experience worlds, places, times and imagine we would never otherwise know or see. They are immortal, these bits of ink and paper - the words of persons far away or long dead can touch us through them. No wonder the art of writing has, for so long, been associated with magic. Here are few of the books I love....... Gates Of Fire by Stephen Pressfield, Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, One Mississippi by Mark Childress, 18 Seconds by George D. Shuman, The Peoples Act of Love by James Meek and Waste Land by Stephen King

If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you'd see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?
