About Me

I guess on the outside Im seemingly completely normal (whatever that is), but there is a part of me that is dark and sinister. I decided to try writing after I got laid off from my "normal' 9 to 5 job. Surprisingly writing has come completely natural to me. The only works Ive had published were non-fiction on marketing (very boring). Now Im writing the first book in my series and Im on rewrite numero uno. I'm trying to make this the final time I write this one. The most difficult thing for me was findng my voice and it didn't take me very long and I do feel fortunate.

I just want to say how many amazing writers there are out there and I wish you all the best of luck! I love reading so keep on writing!

Come learn more about me!

Not only in grass fields with green leaf and running brook did this
constant desire find renewal. More deeply still with living human
beauty; the perfection of form, the simple fact of forms, ravished
and always will ravish me away. In this lies the outcome and end
of all the loveliness of sunshine and green leaf, of flowers, pure
water and sweet air. This is embodiment and highest expression;
the scattered, uncertain, and designless loveliness of tree and
sunshine brought to shape. Through this beauty I prayed deepest
and longest, and down to this hour. The shape the divine idea of
that shape the swelling muscle or the dreamy limb, strong sinew
or curve of bust, Aphrodite or Hercules, it is the same. That I may
have the soul-life, the soul-nature, let the divine beauty
bring to me divine soul.
