About Me

I am a novelist in the making who has been writing since I was about 12. I kept it pretty much hidden because teachers didn't really like it, and I never could get anything published in school mags. I kept writing, but felt really insecure about it.

With the advent of the internet, I started getting brave and since I could do it anonymously, started publishing things on writer's and fan fiction sites. I discovered that people like what I wrote and thought I was a good writer, and encouraged me to keep going. Now I have 3 ongoing stories that are #1 in their category on Wattpad--not great, but it keeps me going. I've got a novel written but it needs some re-working. Who knows, maybe someday I'll get published and make money!

My other passion--maybe my first--is archaeology. I read a story about the discovery of Tutankhamen's grave when I was 12 and I was hooked. I've read a lot about Egypt, Peru, the Maya, as well as Greece and Troy. I hope someday to "re-create" a story about a boy whose father is excavating in the Valley of the Kings. The book is out of print, but I'd love to find it.
