Influences

I have been influenced more by the world around me and my personal relationships rather than a noted author or another writer's style. I have always felt it more important to tell my truth, in my own way, than thru the eyes of another.

Upcoming Works

My current project is not yet at the stage where I will even discuss it with my closest and dearest. Given that it is still my secret gift to myself, i.e., no deadlines, no outside stress - let's leave it at that.
