BiographyJeff and I live in Nipomo, California, a small town on the central coast. We are owned by two basst hounds, Ophelia and Hamlet, a well as a ginger-striped tabby, Wallace. Jeff and I are big NASCAR fans. We love taking the motorhome and attending all of the nearby races. I am also a decorative painter. I have written three fantasy novels, as well as co-authored another fantasy and a science fiction novel.
InspirationI'm a 'what if,' person. Walking in the park with the dogs I'll see someone sitting on a bench, and 'what if' raises its head---and before you know it the peson has become an elf from another world in search of the missing flower needed to free his mother from a raging poison. My mom sparked my love of stories. She read to my brothers and sister for as far back as I can remember.
