I'm an aspiring author to be, I'll admit it. I've been writing since I was old enough to hold a pencil in my hand. Somewhere in the tattered folder I use to store my literary "epics" is a story that I wrote at the tender age of 7.

I've dipped my quill into quite a few genres--action/adventure, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, mystery and yes, even romance. Some of my scribblings will be available for your reading pleasure in my den/library, but more about that later.

Since I've been on the Net, I've found a plethora of resources waiting to assist me in my literary journey from online online dictionaries and thesauri to information on publishers and email discussion lists. There are a few places that I have found especially helpful and very informative. Their pages are listed below; please feel free to check them out.

The flip-side of writing is reading. Writers read just as much as they write; it just seems to go with the territory. My reading material is just as varied as the things I write.

I have a fondness for historical romance novels; it is my one "guilty pleasure." My favorite authors are Jude Deveraux and Julie Garwood and I have nearly all of their books in my library. My other reading passion is the Star Wars saga. (I'm ashamed to admit I am soooo far behind on my reading list, but it is true.) Other authors that I like are Tom Clancy, Mary Higgins Clark and the poetry of Robert Frost.

And now for those of you who are interested, you have reached the door leading to my "reading room." Right now, there are just a few of my stories there, but more will be posted as soon as possible. Please go on in and make yourself comfortable.

If you wish to continue the journey into my Dream Land right now, that is OK. You are always welcome to come back to any page at your convenience. Here are the other areas you can explore.
