Meet the Author

I began construction on Legends Lost Amborese ten years ago while in high school. At the time it was merely a few pages of notes in a notebook. I continued working on the story of Amborese while in college in the hope of publishing it. That day came in August 2011 when the book was first printed.

Most recently, I have published the second book in Legends Lost: Tesnayr.

I keep myself busy writing the third and final novel in the Legends Lost trilogy: Galdin, which will be released in Summer 2013. You can learn more here:

If you prefer something more contemporary try the Mellow Summers Series. Mellow Summers moves to Vermont to start a new life only to discover that she has a acquired a new ability: she can speak to ghosts. Join her as she is pulled from one mystery to another.

I have also published in the area of nonfiction: Illogical Nonsense. I had never planned on writing nonfiction, but when I had the chance to write a political commentary book, I took it. I enjoyed it and hope that it is insightful to any who read it.

Besides writing I also read, hike, and crochet. Sometimes I just wander around doing nothing at all. Every once in awhile a girl needs a break and these are great past times.

    Only eight pages and every "space" cliche in the book! (Pun intended.) If the author is 10, then good job. If not, you might want to consider some things i've heard of; grammar, punctuation, and editing.

    Interesting tale. Would have been better if expanded ... more about the attack or the escape or the aliens. Would have made the ending more dramatic.

    Chapter 20

    I sat outside that evening. What was I going to do? I had to think of something, or Noatak would die. I rubbed my forehead. My eyes were puffy and red from crying. Jira came outside and walked over to me. "I am so sorry, I never ment for this to happen..." I began. "I know" she said sorrowfully. "There is one thing I think I can do to fix this" I said. Jira looked at me, a small spark of hope in her eyes. "I will go to the Northern city" I tell her. It is a large city built into an icy cliff with buildings made of snow and ice. There were many waterbenders there, and they had some of the best healers in the world. "You think you will find a cure" Jira finished, nodding. "Yes" I say. "It is our only hope". "I will help you pack. It will take a few hours to get there on foot" she tells me. We go inside. I finish packing and prepare to leave. I stop next to Noatak. He looks awful, his skin is growing pale and he has a high fever. "I will fix this, I promise" I tell him softly. Then I walk outside. The yellow sun is sinking, a large fire ball in the sky, bathing the clouds in a red hue. Time is ticking, every moment is precious now. I am eager to leave, to find an answer. I tell Jira goodbye, and with a deep breath, I set out. Gray snow clouds gather in the distance as I walk, and I sigh. Walking through a snowstorm was not exactly what I had hoped for. After twenty minutes, I reached a cliff. I carefully walk a skinny path along the side. I am just about around the cliff when I hear a crunch. I run the rest of the trail, the path crumbling swiftly behind me. When I get to the end I stop, my hands on my knees. With a splash the snow and rocks fall like an avalanche into the frigid water below. Looks like I won't be taking that path again. I continued on. The sun sank lower and lower until it dissapeared behind the icy cliffs. The moon was just about full. I was walking down a snowy slope when a bloodcurling howl broke through the night. It was so close, I slid down the rest of the hill and hid behind a boulder. I held my breath. The wolf got closer and closer, I was sure it was going to get me. Then, it just turned away. I didn't move until I was positive that it was gone. It was late, the stars twinkling softly in the indigo sky. I decided it was okay to go to sleep. I curled up under a thick blanket, slightly sheltered by the boulder. When I opened my eyes, I was in the spirit world. This time though, I was standing on a small hill surrounded by greenish black water. "Avatar Aang?" I called out, my voice echoing around. "No" replied a soft voice, a womans voice. I turned around to face the most beautiful lady I had ever seen. She hovered above the water, and moonlight shone around her. Her hair was a whitish blonde, and it flowed loosly like water around her. Her flowing garments were the color of snow. And her eyes were a soft blue. I was looking at Moon Spirit Yue! To be continued at the next result.....
