A Bit About Me
My first picture book, The Stubborn Fairy, has been released from Allison Books, LLC and is available for purchase online from the publisher or Amazon.com. It is a whimsical look into the fantasy world of a small boy who longs for simple pleasures: a dog, a swimming pool and an allowance. Join Roy as he tries to capture the fairy with an attitude.
I'm thrilled every time my writing is published or I've earned an award like the Honorable Mention from Writer's Digest contest for Popular Fiction 2009 with the certificate coming in 2010. This award is shared with my co-writer for our story, A Season of Darkness. Best of all we met online, rather than in person.
Curiosity still drives my life. I love to try writing in the science fiction/fantasy worlds, but do drift into other genres when their fingers beckon. Nothing in life goes to waste for a writer. Everything can enhance a story. I love to dwell on the everyday items or happenings and see how they can fit into a story. I floated on a cloud for several hours when I had my first short story, The New Hire accepted and published it in the Otherworlds 2003 Anthology, which inspired me to pursue writing as a career. I did help the Arizona Authors Association as their secretary and newsletter editor, and in offering help to the president whenever I can.
