About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Writer
Introduction I take my coffee seriously, preferring it hot and made by a professional. And when I take it, I prefer to be either reading a book or writing one. I am primarily a fiction novelist. With three(!) --yes, three, now! -- completed novels (in various stages of the re-writing and editing phases) and several other works-in-progress, I end up spending most of my time with imaginary people in imaginary places making horrible things happen within their imaginary lives. When I'm not doing that, I'm sleeping. Or making more coffee. But enough about me.... Thanks for visiting my blog. Now go read a book or something!
Interests Reading great fiction, Crafting great Story, Action Flicks, music and the biz, coffee, coffee, coffee.....
Favorite Movies Pride & Prejudice (Keira Knightley version), Galaxy Quest, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The A-Team, Emma, Not a movie, but....Psych (TV series on USA Network)
