“There are no laws for the novel. There never have been, nor can there ever be.”
—Doris Lessing

My writing comes together from all of my influences.  The action of Clive Cussler, the worlds and twists of Stephen King, the love and passion of Cora Brent.  There is something magical about bringing characters to life.  It fuels my passion to write.  I start with one idea in mind, and sometimes the story takes off in a completely new direction.  I sit back and enjoy the ride just as much as the readers.  

 

I love creating strong female characters.  I think they are women who deal with many tough things and still prevail.  When they do need help, it's for something that they've never dealt with before.  Need someone roughed up?  Call in a biker with muscles covered in tattoos to get the job done.
