Meet the Author

I'm an author, artist, adventurer in all new and good things. If I was a shameless author, I would tell you how great my young adult book Flotsam is. But I wont. I'll just let you go take a peek at it and decide if you like it yourself.

I love playing Frisbee, a good laugh, smashing evil moths that invade my work space a night, righting the injustices of the world, finding new ways to make ordinary things not so ordinary. I love thunderstorms, you know, the kind when the power goes out and you have to go get the candles. I love cuddling on the couch with a good book, and a fuzzy blanket, feeling warm, and safe, ready to embark on a new adventure without having to even move.

*Shrugs* The simple joys. Who doesn't love em?

What makes me different from the hundred other authors on here. Hmmm... that's a very good question. Let's see...well I can hula hoop about 30 to 40 lbs of hula hoops at one time. *yeah, impressive, I know.* Next, I'll have to learn to do a handstand while hooping, and reading a book.
I've rescued baby goats from freezing temperatures and brought them back to life. My favorite sounds are the hum of crickets on a summer night, people laughing, rain, water over rocks, doves calling, lid on a sprite bottle opening, fish splashing, thunder.

I love running, Four-wheeling, and people who make me laugh. I enjoy listening to all kinds of music. Rock, classical, christian, pop, Irish, movie soundtracks, the works. There's a lot of good music out there folks. I love Medieval stuff/clothes/plays etc. One of my favorite pastiness is wandering through the woods, while listening to music on my mp3 player. I enjoy visiting interesting museums, folk Dancing, Ice skating, visiting new places, abundant people, camp fires, gathering shells and other crustations on the beach* aquariums (fishy watching) photography, the zoo, making music, Random acts of kindness---Who doesn't like that? Thinking deep, complex thoughts, treasure hunting, snowball fights, discovering hidden identities, star-filled nights and Knights, Shooting stars, Make believe, Serendipitous moments.

So now that I have told you a great deal of what I like, I would also REALLY like it if you like my books.
*Cheers*

    Fun, imaginative, inspirational!

    This is a fun book with a good message. I like the characters because it's easy for me to identify with them. I think every person at some stage in their lives has felt "shipwrecked, and lost." The author uses the metaphor of the "Flotsam of life" in a beautifully written story. I think school kids could identify with the feeling of being lost a lot. Anywhozers, I think tweens, kids, and anybody who wants an enjoyable story, would like to read this book. It's a pretty easy read, and very kid friendly.
