I have been writing for most of my life, and below is just a small part of the many novels I have begun. Perfect Cadence is a completed novel at 68,900 words. I am in the process of searching for a suitable agent to represent it. I have more  recently completed The Dreamer, a young-adult fantasy of 81,300 words. Enjoy, and please feel free to contact me if you would like to read either novel in its entirety.

Reviews

“Ever had a dream so lifelike that once you woke, you couldn’t remember where you were or what had and had not happened in the real world? I know I have. It is a scary and wonderful feeling, all rolled into one. Now, imagine you weren’t really dreaming but visiting an alternate universe. And you’re only nine years old. And you are the destined savior of this new universe. How could you ever hope to survive? Who do you trust?

Meet Kyria, a Dreamer. For her, this is reality. But what truly is reality?”
