About

Historical fiction is my weapon of choice for the writing of novels and short stories. I have been fortunate to receive some strong beta reviews and I am continuing to advance my work as I grow as a writer. My favourite things include cats, shoes and someone else doing the dishes. I am the only Kiss fan left.
