Biography

I’m the author of many dark tales and more than a few romances. When people ask me to explain my work, only one word springs to mind: Diverse. I’ve written fact and fiction in almost any genre. So far, I’ve been extremely lucky in that I have had the opportunity to do this, but I’ve also, often, had the pleasure of crossing genres. Thus, crime, horror, fantasy, action, adventure, fairy tales, gothic, erotica, non-traditional romance, and slipstream, are themes I’ve use in any combination, although my non-romance fiction tends to have a dark thread running through it.

Among others, my poems, articles and short stories have appeared in the following and forthcoming publications. Many have featured my work on more than one if not several occasions. I should like to take this opportunity to express my thanks for their interest, support, compliments, and enthusiasm.

I also had the privilege to work on a very special project: Publicity articles and reports for The Really Wild Nursery & Arthritis Care SW “Breaking Down the Barriers” Garden Project, including the entry for the Malvern Spring Show Catalogue and a piece translated into Braille, placed at the entrance to the exhibit.
