Who I am, what I write about, and so on.

Welcome to my author website!

My books are labeled science fiction or fantasy, but mainly I write books full of heart. My worlds are only one or two flaps of a butterfly’s wing away from reality, and while the twisty plots are full of action–things blow up, burn down, and dissolve into puddles of goo–the outcomes hinge on relationships and cooperation.

The characters you’ll meet in my stories know the cost of hope and the weight of despair. They find safety and shelter with one another, fitting together at their broken places to become stronger together. Their big victories grow from small acts of kindness and understanding.

Still with me? Great! Here’s a quick rundown on both my book series:

Rough Passages: Ongoing contemporary science fantasy. Moms who get superpowers at midlife & traumatized teenaged radicals make the military very nervous by saving the world.

Stories Of the Restoration:  Completed series. Near-future SF action. A genius billionaire philanthropist inventor collects a misfit team of specialists to help him bring down criminals the legal system can’t touch.

Nitty-gritty details about my professional background can be found on my official Author Bio page, just a click away. If we meet, you’ll find I am short, squeaky, and energetic, with a thirty-percent chance of loud. The rest of my physical attributes are subject to change without warning.

My personal emblem is a phoenix, symbolizing my periodic professional reinventions, and my motto is Spes Semper Vincit, which I choose to translate as Hope Over All or “Hope always wins in the end.”

Upcoming Events: TBD

Finally, here is a picture of me. It isn’t current, but it was accurate when it was taken. The horse’s name is Sophie. She was feisty. We got along well.
