Writing is a major part of my life, but my love of writing came firstly from my love of reading books. If you are a reader and you have read some of my work, or would like to, then you are giving me the greatest compliment any writer could wish for, the opportunity to share their stories.

I thank you sincerely for the compliment and gift of reading.
