I have written short stories and journals from high school through all of my adult life. It was only during the early 1990s that I decided to write a full-length novel
with ideas from some of these very early high school journals. My first novel went through several re-writes and edits before it was ready for publication. The challenge to write this first novel was very enjoyable and I decided to
write several other novels under several different genres to find my niche. There is another science-fiction thriller wrapped around a love story, but, at that time, I wrote, mostly,
romance. I find that writing science-fiction thrillers
with romance elements is best for me.
When I started to write in the 1990s, I had several of my poems, Two Sides To A Story ©
& Handsome Is As Handsome Does ©, turned into songs, one poem that
was turned into a song, Life's Road ©, appeared on HillTop Record’s album, America. Two
of my other poems were published in two separate anthologies; one, The Tree That Remembers ©, in 1996, was
published in the National Library of Poetry anthology, The Colors of Thought. In 2002, they
published my poem, Two Sides To A Story ©,
in their anthology, Letters From the Soul Series.
And, I continue to write,
EVERYDAY, and, yes, I do try to base all my character's traits on real life people. But, with
experience comes wisom, and I'll combine more character studies into one character.
I have started my new series of books. These books are thrillers and have, not only romance
elements, but, I have combined fantasy elements, as well.
