I have always been driven to the magical and was inspired early on by the greats: JRR Tolkein, Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind.

My debut fantasy series: the Crystal Throne trilogy was a way for me to write the sort of magical universe I had always dreamt about. I particularly wanted to create a series where the main character was a teenage girl who was not driven by love, but by her own prowess and strength. 

Hector the Destructor was born out of a love for my son and the joy he got out of the crazy stories I would make up for him. Hector is the child in all of us: a messy, hilarious, but well-meaning little boy who finds himself knee deep (sometimes literally) in trouble at every turn. 

When I am not writing, you can find me on the slopitch field; going on some crazy adventure with my son; or at a local restaurant trying the new hottest craze.  (Ok you got me, where I will be ordering yet another version of chicken fingers and fries).
