I have been writing historicals since I was a very young girl. When I was 16 I became fascinated with the character of Alexander the Great and in my last year of highschool wrote a novel about him which was later sent to a publisher. The publisher suggested I wait til I was older, revise and resend. But it wasn't til many years later (2014) that I completed a novel about him. It was accepted for publication by a UK publisher but because of it's length was divided into two novels SHADOW OF THE LION: Blood on the Moon (pub 2015) and SHADOW OF THE LION; The Fields of Hades (pub. 2017). Availble on Amazon and full version on Kindle plus in the Vancouver Public library. I currently have another novel out looking for publication. I've been a travel journalist siince 1984 with many publications as well as publications in various magazines for stories and poetry. I also edited and published an on-line travel zine for several years TRAVEL THRU HISTORY. I self published a poetry book in 2000 SONGS FOR ERATO which is available on Amazon and Kindle.
