More About the Author
Welcome to my author website, I'm going to assume you're here because you've at least started reading one of my books and have enjoyed it enough to check me out. First, let me say Thank You! I love the art of storytelling and am glad that you have chosen to follow along on one those journeys.
Now, a little about myself. I have been writing stories since I was a small child. I used to sit in front of my grandfather's old typewriter, pounding away at the keys, until the page was full of random letters and symbols. I would then walk triumphantly out into the living room with my "Book" and recite some random story to my family (at that point I believe they typically consisted of Inspector Gadget or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).
Since that time I was always brainstorming and writing snippets of stories here and there, but never put anything complete to paper (or screen?) until the summer of 2012. The process was fun and I learned a lot, but that first book was not really what I had in mind. However, it was only one of many stories (and that first story will come out eventually, just needs some work). The true impetus for my publishing adventure was the birth of my daughter in April of 2013.
After my daughter was born I wanted to write a story she could grow up with. I had a couple of smaller ideas that I began with, and those eventually grew into what has become the Equilibrium Cycle. It's already grown into more that I originally expected, and I'm excited every time I sit down and follow Laila and Connor on their journey. But, again, it's only one of the many stories I want to tell.
So, again, thank you for coming with me on this journey. My hope is for this website to be a collection of my experiences both with writing and publishing that those of you who are interested can come to to find info, inspiration, whatever it may be. With that, I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes about writing:
"Fairy tales are more than true, not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten." -G.K. Chesterton
Top Customer Reviews
The book was great reading and each chapter took on a new direction to keep my interest. The writing is clear,crisp and expresses emotion to enhance various scenes. One is able to understand the the characters personalities and follow them as they interact, grow and mature.
Even though some of the book's characters took on some supernatural powers; these powers did not come easy and had to be learned by human struggle.
In my opinion, the book is for all reading age groups. As senior citizen, it opened a new avenue for a great reading experience.
Give it a try.
Laila is the focus of the story. She is the daughter of one of the cities leading couples; Laila reach the age of citizenship and must take the test that grants her the right to remain in the city and the entry to adulthood. Terus, beautiful city of the Confederacy, home to the Artisans, Guardians, and Consuls. Something sinister is growing in her city and our heroine discovers the world is not as clear cut as she thought.
I prefer books with depth of characters but only Laila is really filled out. The other characters are wooden in comparison. The dialogue and level of depth is what you normally see in a coming of age tale, certainly satisfying for a YA audience. The inner conflict in the story has the normal fantasy quest and fellowship to assist the central character. Adults that like damsels in distress and a straightforward plot will enjoy the premise. The story flows well and it is easy to read, but not compelling enough for me to follow her next adventure.
