As an independent author, I've drawn inspiration from a variety of places and events. Some photos and cover elements I've created or were inspired by.

Since I write in multiple genres, several novels are mentioned here. For more description on individual books, please refer to the novels page and the links therein. I'm an author of fiction and while I've written multiple short stories, my greatest passion is that of  a novel writer.
