Thank you for visiting my author page!

Here you will find information about everything I have in publication and what I'm working on now. My genres include Young Adult Paranormal Fiction, Adult Paranormal Fiction and Romance.

Because I can't resist, I will also try to frequently blog a favorite quote from one of the many, many books I've read. Some days they'll be funny, others, hopefully, thought provoking.

Below are links to the first chapters of each of my books in publication.

Literary Quote of the Day

Several quotes from Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins:

"Sandwiches were invented by the Earl of Sandwich, popcorn was invented by the Earl of Popcorn, and salad dressing by the Oil of Vinegar.  The moon invented natural rhythm.  Civilization uninvented it."

"So goofy/erotic was the Hawaiian language that the street signs read like invitations to pagan whoopjamboreehoos, and 'nookie' was on the tip of every sober tongue.  Hawaiian was a language that could name a fish 'humuhumunukunukuapua'a' and a bird 'o-o,' and never mind that the bird was larger than the fish."

"And yet the pea under the mattress complained.  It broadcast - peep peep peep - through the most luxuriant stuffing its bruising litany: poverty, waste, injustice, pollution, disease, armaments, sexism, racism, overpopulation; a boring inventory of social ills atop which princess meat could never quite get comfortable."

"Intimacy is the principal source of the sugars with which this life is sweetened.  It is absolutely vital to the essential insanities.  Without the essential (intimate) insanities, humor becomes inoffensive and therefore pap, poetry becomes exoteric and therefor prose, eroticism becomes mechanical and therefore pornography, behavior becomes predictable and therefore easy to control.  As for magic, there's none at all because the aim of any social activist is power over others, whereas a magician seeks power over only himself: the power of higher consciousness, which, while universal, cosmic even, is manifest in the intimate."
