I've joined forces with Brazilian comic book creator and artist, Rak M Nay to translate and revamp Arcanom.
I have to say that even though the language barrier made pulling the story together difficult, Rak created a brilliant storyline, and he is wonderful to work with.
As for me...sometimes, I think I'm my worst enemy because I write cross-genre fiction. It’s a risk, but without risks there are no changes.
My characters aren’t thrill seekers. They’re ordinary people taking risks to make a better life for themselves and the people they love.
In the sci-fi thriller/romantic comedy, Genni’s Box, Trevor is a father who will do anything to give his brain damaged daughter a normal life.
Blue Jeans of the romantic/thriller, Kate, Blue Jeans and a Single Shot, will risk his life to give his only hope a chance.
Editing is a constant process, so is preparing marketing plans and creating companion websites to make the stories interactive.
I have a full plate, but I will read books I want to read. I don't respond to queries unless you have a hell-ov-a pitch. Plus read my other comments, if you don't think you can take the heat, don't ask me into your kitchen. I burn almost everything:)
I have a variety of nonfiction articles throughout the web and in print. Clips available as requested. I specialize in writing about teen & women’s issues and health, family health, adult & child mental health, and issues of sex & sexuality. I also write inspirational true stories.
The full manuscripts of both books are available to agents and publishers on request.
The fun artwork for Genni's Box was done by the wonderful Bradley Wind.
Husband, two daughters: One Nature girl, One Goth, Both Great Kids! Two Pets: Siberian Husky and a rescued European Starling who talks and sings (yes, they can). We travel the country extensively in a van to get a feel for North America. We're also serious back-country campers, meaning no toilets no water, but lots of fun.
I’m a huge Joseph Campbell and Shackleton fanatic. I will read anything by them or about them.
2001: A Space Odyssey, by Arthur C. Clarke
The Inner Reaches of Outer Space, by Joseph Campbell
The Unfinished Revolution, Michael Dertouzos
Looking for Mr. Goodbar, Judith Rossner
The Postman Always Rings Twice, by James Cain
South: The Story of Shackleton’s Last Expedition, by Sir William Shackleton
I also love Manga and Graphic Novels.
So you know my true state of mind:
Kick Ass - rules
Tegami Bachi - is my inspration
Princess Ressurection - is my love
