Published Works

Like most authors before me, I started writing for myself. Spewing words and emotions onto the page was better than any pill, cheaper than any therapist, and then it changed.

The words I wrote, the worlds I created, demanded an audience, and so I turned my efforts to getting my work published.

As any author knows, getting published isn’t easy. There are a lot of knock-backs and rejections. I had to grow a thick skin – and quickly.

Newly Teflon-coated, I persevered and was finally rewarded with a publishing contract.

There is no feeling in the world like seeing your work in print.
To all writers out there – Don’t give up! You only need one yes to make all those no’s worthwhile.
