Profile Information

I have tried so many things that I constantly call myself a Jack of all trades but master of here I am trying to master one. 

 Ever since I was little I loved stories - reading, writing, composing songs and singing, escaping.  My first obsession was with Agatha Christie...altI wanted to be like her - murder, crime, intrigue....then I discovers James Herbert TheRatsand Stephen King .  Dark I know...  Then I turned to John Grisham... And of course the Amazing J. K. Rowling... who could not love Harry Potter and his magical world? TheCoatofArmsofHogwarts,featuringscarletandgoldGryffindorcolourswiththemascotLion,yellowandblackofHufflepuffwiththesymbolicbadger,bronzeandblueRavenclawcolourswithaneagle,andSlytheringreenandsilverwithaserpentmascot.

But my real obsession has alway been with vampires... From The Lost Boys to Interview with a Vampire to of course Buffy and Angel alt- I loved it all.  Everyone I knew thought I was mad about Buffy.  What intrigued me was the idea of falling in love with a vampire so when Stephenie Meyer came along with Twilight the circle was complete.  Thetwilightsagahardback.jpg

I have now published my book, HYBRID... available from Amazon

HYBRID - Book One of the Evolution Series

University.  Land of opportunity?  For Steven Thorn, it’s the start of a new life.  Just not the one he anticipated.  As his resolve is put to the test, he ends up losing everything.  For who could live a normal life as a HYBRID.

Steven Thorn has no trouble settling in at University. Having grown up at boarding school, he is used to living away from home. He’s smart, so studying comes naturally. When it comes to making new friends, he’s cautious. Usually, he receives too much unwanted attention.  Caitlin Chance catches him off guard.  She’s the first girl he has ever felt an instant attraction towards and the more he gets to know, the more he likes.

However, the romance is cut short when Caitlin leaves University after a suspicious suicide.  Now Steven is alone, Ingrid gets her chance and it doesn’t take long for her to discover that Steven is a HYBRID.

The wheels are set in motion for his radical upheaval.

Now they know he exists, they will come to get him…


I am happy to take requests...but I prefer books on romance or thrillers...poetry is nice...

Happy Writing!
