Cornish, lover of enlightenment, risk, fish & chips on Mevagissey pier, devoted globe trotter.
I write for the joy of discovery. An idea burns inside me and characters leap into my imagination. I turn their desires inside out to learn the truth that drives them. I publish to share that journey with others. I am English by birth and American by adoption. I live as a citizen of the globe. I published my first book this year – Dream Chaser, A Novel That Reaches Beyond the Veil of Time. My second novel –Written In Ruberah –will be ready for publication in 2012.
