About meI am a young, creative author that writes speculative fiction and Fantasy. I enjoy a mix of the modern and the mythical, kind of like urban fantasy, but also I love Terry Pratchett's Discworld books for their originality and humor. Neil Gaiman is another one of my favorites. When I'm not working on my latest book, I'm playing guitar, ukulele, painting and drawing my illustrations, as well as appreciating visits to Art Galleries and book talks. I have a twin brother who's at University now, and he visits me occasionally.
