I was only 16 years old when my dying grandfather called me to his bedside, took my hand and said, "You have the gift of writing that I never used. Whatever you do, don't let it go to waste like I did."
Scared I wasn't as talented as my beloved "Dandy", I quit writing. 14 years later, bedridden in California from one of the first diagnosed cases of Epstein-Barr Virus, this athletic, active woman wrote her first book to keep from going crazy. I finished the book, got better, and stuffed the book in an envelope - never intending to do anything with it.
3 and a 1/2 years later the book was discovered by a friend who then proceeded to harangue me about publication. Worn down, I finally submitted it. It was my first book published. Almost 20 years later, there are now 25+ books published, but that is just the beginning. I have so many more inside me!
I believe in the power of the written word to change lives. I also believe that historical novels can implant the Bregdan Principle in people's hearts and minds.
The Bregdan Principle...Every life that has been lived until today is a part of the woven braid of life. It takes every person's story to create history. Your life will help determine the course of history. You may think you don't have much of an impact. You do. Every action you take will reflect in someone else's life. Someone else's decisions. Someone else's future. Both good and bad.
My passion is to write powerful and entertaining historical fiction through the sweeping saga called the Bregdan Chronicles.
I am also passionate about my Fly To Your Dream Series, the 101+ Ways Series, my business building books, and everything else that can be communicated via writing! Basically - I'm just PASSIONATE!
When I decided to write Children's books, I never imagined how much FUN I would have! The fact that children and parents love them so much makes it even MORE FUN! I started with the When I Dream Series - that will grow to 50+ titles in 2014. I hope you'll read them all.

And when I'm not writing or running my company? I love anything outdoors, but tops on my list are hiking in the mountains with my dog, rowing, biking, swimming, tennis, windsurfing, snowshoeing... I have a very big "tops on my list"!
Mostly, I am just very happy to have you in my world! You can come visit me anytime at www.AVoiceInTheWorld.com!
