Author has written 12 stories for Merlin.

Some of my hobbies and interests: photography, travel, reading, trips to the mountains, beach, or forests, animals (especially cats, horses, wolves, and raptors), and writing.

Favorite authors and books: Robert B. Parker, Dick Francis, Michael Crichton, Rex Stout, Robert Ludlum, Megan Whalen Turner, and Jennifer Fallon. I read JRR Tolkien in college. I like Mary Renault's books about ancient Greece and Alexander. I love Mary Stewart's books about Merlin, especially The Crystal Cave. I read T.H. White's The Once and Future King. I read Tony Hillerman's mysteries about the Navajo. (My family lived in New Mexico when I was a teenager.) My favorite book is Noble House by James Clavell. (Also the mini-series.) My favorite book as a child was David and the Phoenix by Edward Ormondroyd.

Favorite vacations: When I was a teenager, my family visited Yellowstone. I love everything about that place. Also, I visited the United Kingdom in 2010. I toured England, Scotland, and Llangollen, Wales. Since I've read Jane Austin, I was particularly interested in Bath. I thought Stonehenge had way too many tourists. I wanted them all to leave. lol. I especially liked Edinburgh (and of course toured the castle.) In the future I want to visit Ireland, France, and New Zealand.
