Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Born in Northfield Ohio, and at eh young age of 7 my family moved to Arizona where I still reside.
I have always had and still have several pets. A lot of them are rescue pets that I came across neglected or abused and now have cats and birds, snakes and turtles and maybe even a crocodile
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
At the age of 8 i would walk to the forest and stare at turtles and frogs for long periods of time. It was at that time where I started creating stories about them. To this day I can go to the zoo, watch animals such as elephants and in my mind turn the thoughts into “The Lion King”
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite authors are Dr. Seuess and also Michael Crichton. I enjoy reading Children’s books and have been and still am inspired by Legends such as Walt Disney and Mickey Rooney
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The Forgotten Ornament came from my grandmother. Every Chrismas she would tell me how the animal ornaments on the tree would come to life for a brief moment just to say that they were thinking of me.
All the characters in The Forgotten Ornament represent all the animals that I have rescued from abuse and neglect.
