Latest Event Updates
What defines us? What makes us who we are? Is it our appearance? Our personality? Our family? Our past? Our education? Our memories? Or is it a combination of all of these?
What if someone took one of those things away from you? How would you feel? Incomplete?
What if someone changed your appearance without your permission or knowledge? It would take away part of your identity and sense of self.
I explored this in my novel, Tamisan. The main character’s consciousness was transferred into another body, and the body wasn’t even human. She had to deal with the identity issues, as well as the fact that the alien body could breathe above and below the water and had psychic abilities.
Her escape into the dangerous jungle adds more peril, and then her adventure really begins. There are a number of characters in the book that treat her as an object instead of a person. Is it just because of her appearance? Is a pretty face all anyone cares about?
And, of course, there is the issue of slavery. What kind of person makes another person a slave?
* Tamisan is available now through Amazon on Kindle and paperback.

A future that could become a reality
A deadly virus is killing people all over the world. The government has a plan to save people, but only a small percentage of the population can be saved. They will be put into PODs and sealed underground until the virus is gone, separated from their family and friends, who are left to die.
When they’ve been in the PODs for over a year, they’re let out to start a new life. But not everyone died. The virus has mutated.
Eva met David while they were stuck in the POD and now they face the people who are infected with the new strain of the virus.
There is a part of me that believes that this is how the government would handle a situation like this, especially with how they went about selecting “random” members of the population to go into the PODs. This story shows how people react to the situations they are forced into.
It’s a great story. I loved the relationship between Eva and David and liked their friends. It was hard to put my phone down and stop reading. (I have Kindle and Scribd on my phone.)
It’s impossible to talk about some of the parts I liked without writing spoilers, but I can say that I loved this book.
Here is the link to it on Amazon.com if you would like to read it yourself.

I have finished revising Tamisan and have decided to make it part of a series. The new title is Tamisan (Tamisan Book 1). It is available on Amazon and Smashwords. Smashwords puts your book through to Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple, so it is available at all of those online stores, too. If you prefer print books, it is available in print through Amazon.
I am excited to have the improved version of my story out there and can’t wait to see how it goes.
For anyone who reads it or who has read it already, I would appreciate it if you could write a review. It is one of the best ways for me to advertise my books to the world. Thanks in advance.
I haven’t posted anything on here in a long time. Life has really gotten in the way of everything lately. I’m hoping to change that and put more time into writing and blogging and marketing.
Although TAMISAN is already published, I am revising it and changing it around to be in the first person. I will re-release it as soon as it’s done and will post the news here.

Nara Collins is unique. Every night, she dreams what will happen in her life the next day. It is handy to know when you will trip over something or the answers to the questions in an upcoming test. She doesn’t usually do anything major to change things, but when lives are at risk, she can’t just stand by and let it happen. So she saves them.
Then her powers start to fail her and she meets Ethan Harris. He is a mystery to her and her friend is telling her to stay away from him. She needs to find out more about him and if the rumours are true.
This story is one that draws you in and has you wondering about Nara’s powers and what Ethan’s story is, but the thing I loved was the intensity of the relationship between them. And once you think you have him worked out, he does something to throw you off again.
The mystery deepens, even as the book comes to an end, and it will leave you wanting to grab the next book in the series, Lucid. Then you’ll want to get hold of the prequel, Ethan, which tells the story from Ethan’s point of view of when they meet. You can read it before or after Book 1, but I recommend reading it afterwards.
I loved all three of these books.
Don’t worry, the next one is due out in 2013. Destiny is Book 3 in the series and I can’t wait to read it.
It’s available on Amazon right now and the Kindle version is free!
