Meet the Author

I was born in Canada; I grew up in Texas. In between I've had a thousand fascinations.

Little things. Trivial things. Almost anything can catch my imagination and spur on a thought-a random article on Wikipedia can cost me hours of a day as I link from page to page.

Mix this active imagination with poor time management skills and you get me. I have more ideas for stories than I have time to tell.

But, I'm trying; I write in the wee hours, the downtime hours, and the many hours when I should be sleeping. One day I hope to write in the daylight hours. Maybe then I'll be able to stay a step ahead of my imagination.

Until then I'll do my best to write books worth reading with jokes worth laughing at as fast as I can. The serious stuff is being taken care of by a world full of great writers. I don't want to shock you or change your mind. I don't even care if it makes you think. I just want you to squirt that drink out your nose.

Hope it's not carbonated.
That tends to sting.

    Lions, zebras, and rhinos, oh, my!

    I LOVED this book! Not many authors can make you laugh out loud while their characters are in the middle of a life-or-death shoot-out. This book has it all: humor, action, eco-terrorists, insanely rich people (insane being the operative word), beautiful scenery, and a little romance. Oh, and wild animals. This is a fast-paced story that will keep you hooked until the very end.
