I believe we are the Protagonists in our own life story, a mystery we’ve been given to solve. Every day there are clues. Writing pushes me to observe human nature and understand the mystery of who we are.
My published work is Guardian Cats and the Lost Books of Alexandria, an alternative history novel based a the idea of a noble order of felines that were rescued from the burning library. I’m currently working on a stand alone sequel.
I write pretty much all the time, even when I’m not. I compose sentences, plot points, back story, or listen to my characters while washing dishes or showering. Through rigorous practice I have developed the ability to flip from my left brain to my right brain in the blink of an eye, a handy talent for jotting down an idea at stoplights.
We live in sunny California on a two acre spread we call ‘Camp Relentless’. Because some plant is always in bloom and we don’t use chemical weapons, we are host to a huge bird population and chronic allergies. But we haven’t had to shovel snow since moving from the Midwest and we’re greeted every morning with a righteous chorus of bird songs.
Other things you might like to know.
- I love cats. I don’t know if people dump their cats off, or I’m just a cat magnet, but we always have a cluster of strays that wander through, sometimes stopping to give birth and move on, like our property is on some feline migratory path. Some of them stay and become pets.
- Like most writers, I love writing, books, libraries and coffee.

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.” Albert Einstein
