As a writer, I started out in print, with magazine fiction and short stories, flash fiction, humor pieces, newsletters, newspaper articles, policy and procedural docs, technical manuals, etc.
I've also been at the cutting edge of technology, writing paid Internet columns back in 2000-01 as well as contributing to one of the earliest e-books (PDF) in 2001.
Many years down the track and here I am ... still at the keyboard, and still writing stories for people to enjoy!
WHERE ARE YOUR BOOKS AVAILABLE?
I distribute to a wide range of e-vendors. Find the full list on the BUY page.
ARE YOUR BOOKS AVAILABLE IN PRINT OR AUDIOBOOK FORMAT?
Most of my novels should be available in print / paperback by December 2021. I currently have no plans to release my work in Audiobook format.
WHAT SPELLING & GRAMMAR DO YOU USE?
United States English, spelling and grammar.
WHAT ARE THE HEAT / MATURE CONTENT LEVELS IN YOUR NOVELS?
Varies from book to book, series to series, genre to genre. Basically, I write what the scene and narrative demands. A notice about mature content is posted in the front matter of each e-book.
ARE YOU ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
I'm on Twitter.
If you're a reader who likes new book release notices, snap promotions, discounts and cheap / free eBooks, I'll announce all that news there. Be sure to click on the cute birdie icon, then Follow Me / Bookmark, so you don't miss a thing!
I also adore decorating for the yearly seasonal holidays, and my Twitter is often decked out with cool decor, great holiday baking / cooking recipes and tips, plus YouTube music and other neat finds that'll get you in the holiday spirit!
ARE YOU ON GOODREADS?
Yes, I am now a Goodreads Official Author.
You can Follow Me or ask me a question. And of course rate, review and discuss my books with other readers. Click on the Goodreads icon below to go to my author page.

PRIVACY / COOKIE NOTICE
This website is cookie-free. No personal information is collected.
FOR ASPIRING AUTHORS / WRITERS
Please do not send me your stories or writing. I do not offer editorial advice or critiques. There are multiple places online that offer the help and services you may require. Any unsolicited stories or writing sent will be deleted unread! Any submitted plot ideas for my own novels will be deleted unread as well, as I do not accept manuscripts or plot input from others for legal and ethical reasons.
LICENSES / OWNERSHIP OF E-BOOKS
E-books are currently NOT covered under the First Sale doctrine, like print books are. Instead, they are limited licensed -- not owned outright -- to individuals. So, while you most likely own your reading device (Kindle, Kobo, Nook, etc), you don't actually fully own any of the e-books on it! What this essentially means is that readers cannot resell, sub/relicense, copy and reproduce, re/distribute, or transfer the e-book or its license in any way, shape or form.
Depending on the vendor you choose to buy your e-books from, you may however be permitted to borrow, lend and gift an e-book according to their specific terms and conditions.
Content from this website is not to be republished or reproduced in any form or format without my express, and prior, written permission. No part of this website is to be stored in a digital, archival, retrieval storage system or database. Not to be mirrored, framed or hotlinked.
Further Credits: original stock art (photographs and vector art) for my covers owned by their respective creators and have been credited in the front matter of each e-book, along with my cover designers. Licenses have been procured, where required.
