Writing is my Passion

 

When I was young, a pen was my favorite toy.  I grew up playing with words, mixing them up and twisting them into a silly poem or a story that sparked emotion. 

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, I was exposed to all sorts of creatures through my father who trained, bred, and rehabilitated animals.  It was not uncommon to find bobcats, alligators, monkeys, hawks, or even vultures at my home.  A love of animals and nature has spilled over into my love of writing.

Today my favorite toy is a keyboard.  I am currently living in Northern California, where I am hard at work on my next book.
