From the Author

As an author, I'm drawn to eccentric, unexpected characters: those who surprise because they hear a distant galaxy, see a different music, create their own fragrance rather than get hooked on a soundtrack; the child who has her own ideas about how the emperor is dressed; the lunatics and rebels who tell stories on the boundaries. I seek to write unusual stories that take readers to worlds they never imagined--a whole new ride.
 
One of the attractions of writing fantasy is that it forces us to experiment with "beyond the box" thinking. Imagination is often the only tool we have in breaking through the barriers or chains that limit our possibilities. Running on imagination, our minds and hearts are no longer bound by such "obvious" constraints as common sense, the speed of light, or prejudices of mind.
 
A natural relative of fantasy is the sense of humor, and need to play, that are part of human nature. Like fantasy, humor is a matter of skewing how we look, and re-look, at things we normally take for granted. In my writing, I use fantasy and humorous absurdity to poke holes in the expectations cultures create to keep things in their place.
 
Fantasy, including the idea that cows might think, talk, and are proper heroines--perhaps encourages us to wonder about other creatures, people, and dimensions of thought that "common sense" keeps us from hearing and seeing. Possibly, we may even discover that there are cows within ourselves waiting to speak and be heroic. Our capacity to hear things that are, in our "common sense" world, unheard and unheard of, is one of the degrees of freedom we can preserve for ourselves and offer to others. And, for children--kids of all ages--these degrees of freedom are precious and worth nurturing. That is why I write.
