I live in Southern California but still consider myself part Texan by birthright. I was born in Houston and grew up in Dallas. I've resided in California since the mid 1980's but get back to Texas as much as possible. My first two published novels--GARGOYLES and THE UNNATURAL are biomedical thrillers. Actually THE UNNATURAL could also fall into the horror genre as it is a pretty bizarre tale. BARBARY POINT is a love story about a successful young woman who falls in love with a fishing guide. It was written on a suggestion from a former agent.I have several other projects in the works. HEMLOCK POND is a horror story about a young woman and her son who move into an old farmhouse with a haunted pond. Boo!GIRL BLUE, another pretty bizarre story, is about a world renowned sculptor who becomes haunted by his last work. Oh did I mention the sculptor is terminally ill?SMILODON is the story of a huge cat that terrorizes a small town in the majestic Pacific Northwest. This one will grab you and not let go--yeah, that sounds like a cat.PLAGUE is the riveting sequel to GARGOYLES. Fasten your seat belts, close your eyes and pray like hell because the world as we know it is coming to an end.RETURN TO UNDERLAND is a middle grade children's adventure story that includes dinosaurs and cavemen. Ooooh!Very soon I'll be releasing my first paranormal romance. THE LEARNER will be the first book in the Learner Series. I'm excited about gettng this one out there. It should arrive from outer space sometime in November. Yup, you guessed it--the story involves space aliens!Then on December 1st I'll release my holiday novelette, ST. CLAWS. Love the holidays! My favorite football team is the Superbowl champs GREEN BAY PACKERS. Sorry Cowboys. But when GB is not on the gridiron--Go Dallas! Great Cheerleaders, too!I enjoy the outdoors and as a side note I'm one of only a few individuals to ever swim across Wisconsin's chilly Lake Winnebago. Does this make me a better writer--probably not.When I'm not working on my next project, I enjoy relaxing and fishing at our family vacation home in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

I saw this book for free on Amazon and snatched it up. I figured it being a cover that has a pumpkin and it says Halloween it is going to have gory and scary stories. I was wrong. For me the only story that I really liked was Haunting in OR 13. I did finish the book but I just did not get into the s...

This is one of the best story collections I've read so far. It has everything from ghosts to witches to demons and even dragons (not to mention vampires, werewolves, and fairies {oh my!})Amazingly enough, my favorite story is Sunwalker's Kiss. And I say "amazingly enough" because I usually lean more...

There were a few decent stories in this collection and some I skipped. It seems they brought a few of these out to showcase the authors. I wouldn't get another collection.

I want to thank the author for gifting The Learner for an honest review.If you know me, even a little, you know I’m big into science fiction and out there books, movies, etc. When this book was offered up through AToMR, I was all over it. And here, to have a gorgeous alien who sticks by the rules ...

Fantastic sci fi story. Very well written. Characters are full and well developed. NayeLi is an alien. Sent to Earth to learn (Title of book is THE LEARNER) about our ways. She has the unique ability to make her almost invisible to others. Invisible in that no one really notices her. She is the girl...
