When my 7th grade English teacher likened my writing to Saki, the author of The Interlopers, I was hooked. That defining moment began my foray into mad scribblings of terrible poetry and story starters galore. From that point onward, writing has been a passion though not a profession. Three sons, a career, and many, many years later, the closest I had come to that pinnacle of achievement was writing a published curriculum piece for a zoo and a graduate course in science.
My first book, a dystopian fiction titled After the Green Withered, was officially published in May 2018. This novel was truly a labor of love and a long time coming! Of course, they say that good things come to those who wait, so I suppose this was one of those things that needed more time. This initial publication is sure to be the first of many to come. There are so many more stories swirling through my mind, aching to be put on a page and enjoyed (hopefully) by others.
