My philosophy from the beginning of this writing journey has been to write books I enjoy reading. If these books found readers who also enjoyed the stories, then it made publishing these books worth the time and energy. Those readers are the ones I am writing for. I can’t write for all readers, so I don’t even try.
So when I come upon a positive review of one of my books, it makes me smile. I found one today, posted yesterday and for me, it reaffirmed the reason I do what I do. And that’s write books that I enjoy, not books on the latest fad, political statement or books similar to those on the best-sellers’ list.
What kind of books do I enjoy? Ones with adventure, a little romance, a little humour, hope even when things look tragic, hard-working people with good values, loving family, loyal friends, a good sense of home and entertainment. I like to create worlds we can escape to, ones that make us forget about the current state of the world around us.
After all, isn’t that what a good novel is supposed to do? Allow us to escape reality and enter a world that allows us see and experience a different life, even if for only 30 minutes a day.

Couldn’t Put it Down
Best story I’ve read in awhile. Interesting..unusual..well written.
Loved the way their relationship developed as they learned to respect and trust each other.
If you’re interested in going on an adventure, check out Northern Survival. First you’ll have to survive the plane crash.
