I've been writing stories since I was a kid. My stories and articles have been published in print magazines, webzines, and anthologies; and my SF has been published in two audiobooks, including Sugar Time. My books include Strike Three, Detour Trail; Building a Cool House for Hot Times without Scorching the Pocketbook; a children's book, Why Won't Anyone Play with Me?; two story collections:The Doorway and Other Stories (SF) and Aliens, Animals, and Adventure; and four e-books: Hidebound, Pretty Pink Planet, Hot Yellow Planet, and Remodeling: Buying and Updating a Foreclosure. I live in Florida with Blizzard the Snow Princess and Bryn the Flying Corgi.
