Born a native of Des Moines, Iowa, I was transplanted to Batesville, Arkansas on my 11th birthday, where my mother, Shirley Ann Strong, was born. I'm now, 45 and a single father working on finding love that'll last a lifetime.
At the age of 13, I was on my own, and spent nearly a month hitchhiking back to my hometown of Des Moines, Iowa, on foot. I stayed here & there, and encountered countless situations and experienced numerous things that no child that age should ever know about. I managed to survive the ordeal, because I counted on the strength of my upbringing to that point. Momma raised us three kids to be 'strong' and always live up to out family name.
As an adult, I began writing short stories here and there, from time to time, but never really knowing why, other than the fact that I loved the excitement of erotica, and the almost electric charge i always got from discussing anything regarding sex! Needles to say, my stories began to take-on a sexual tone more and more.
The more I wrote, the better ideas I began to come up with, until eventually, I found myself writing with such a vivid imagination, that people who read my work, boasted that they felt as though they could actually 'see' the story unfold right before their mind's eye. It was only after countless years of starting, then eventually quiting over and over, that I came to decide to write a novel of my own short stories. Since my decision to do so, I've had to take on the sometimes incredible task of 'learning' the ins & outs of writing books vs. becoming an author (and believe me, they are NOT one and the same).
I quickly realized, upon researching where to begin my endeavor, that it entailed major money just to get going...Money I didn't have. So I decided that my project would become an endeavor to 'beat' the system in my 'quest for success', by learning unconventional ways to get my book out there! SELF-PUBLISHING!
My books have made it from 'imagination withing my mind's eye, to an actual product ready to be distributed to you, the consuming public, quite literally, cost-free to me. Seriously. I've had to find all the ways I could, that would allow me to create my books, and get then to the marketing sector on as small of a budget as humanly possible. Having devoted my spare time and countless hours of researching, day-in & day-out, I succeeded!
This has produced my breakout, debut novel, THE INSATIABLE, which has been rescheduled for release early this June (2013).
A friend, whom I spent a brief stint living in Kensett, Arkansas with, Margo Rouse, asked me if I would ever include her in one of my books, as a character... needles, to say, I fully agreed. The past 4 yrs were spent penning that very promise into the novel: SEDUCING KITARA, which I've scheduled to be released by Mid-August (2013).
So to my beloved, fiery-redheaded muse and cherished friend, Margo Rouse...
This book is dedicated to YOU!
