Once upon a time, when I was five, I picked up a book and started reading.

 

     

 

   

     Yes, that's the book. Nevermind that it was part of a series, and that I had read it out of order, I was hooked. I found myself looking for the rest of the series, and more books by the author, and soon, books by other authors too. Soon, I had quite a collection of books that I'd read regularly and just as eagerly each time.

 

   But sometimes I wanted more stories, told in different ways, filled with particular types of characters, and I found that the only way I could read those stories was if I wrote them myself. And so I did, on pages torn from notebooks, carefully stapled back together, and featuring a cover drawn in color pencils. 

      

     Eventually, I became a technical writer, but my love for reading and writing fiction never faded.

     

      SHROUD is my debut novel and a recipient of the Book Readers Appreciation Group (B.R.A.G.) Medallion. It is featured in the Medallion Honoree library at www.bragmedallion.com. 

     I'm currently working on a few more projects, and I'm excited to share more info with you. Do check regularly for more updates.
