Greetings, all. I'm a YA+ contemporary-fantasy author currently working on the second book in a trilogy that's looking like it'll be tetralogy if I continue the way I've been going.

I love the genre in which I write, but I also love everything from classics (I'm currently in the middle of MOBY DICK) to modern literary fiction.

Charles Dickens was a god. So were Ray Bradbury and Gabriel García Márquez.

And that's my hello.

Happy to be here!

This weekend, I'll be talking #selfpublishing at Helen Plum Library in Lombard as part of the Soon to be Famous Illinois Author tour. Stop by and say, "Hey!"

(Just not while I'm, you know, talking, please.)

"One hell of an imagination."

As the great philosopher Kit Carruthers once said, do you think they'll take that into consideration?

I've always thought this stuff was suitable for framing. Some Commons artwork hangs in the (virtual) gallery.
Fun with Commons art, courtesy of Photofunia. (And here’s the larger version for those who like the big picture.) See the originals in the Commons Art category. Share on Tumblr Related
