The New

My lifelong dream has been to write and illustrate. I picked up my first Elfquest comic at age eleven, and knew that creating worlds and stories was my future. It did not come about as quickly as I had hoped, but here I am, with my books on pre-order at Amazon, with websites and book sites and support sites, all with the intent to help me on this journey. I have so many stories to share, and I can’t wait to have others read them šŸ™‚

I am still nervous about having my work published. It’s showing a part of me to a wide swath of people I don’t know, and likely never will. I hope to bring some joy to a few people, perhaps inspire a few more.

For a bit of background: my parents moved from California to Wyoming when I was very young. I grew up in the rural Rocky Mountains (and yes, it’s as empty there as you may think. No, trees don’t count). I attended the University of Wyoming, then LSU. I have degrees in English, Art History and a Masters in Library and Information Science. I moved back to California after college and have lived and worked in SoCal ever since.

Constant through all of it was fantasy stories, whether writing or reading them. Fantasy kept me hopeful. Fantasy allowed me to express myself, following ideas that resonated with me, but not necessarily with those around me. When my soul felt as if it were dying, fantasy buoyed me. I hope I can bring some of that to my readers.
