Author of magical realism, fantasy, folktales, paranormal and satire
Old stories, parts of which are true and not forgotten, lend themselves to a mix of magical realism and contemporary fantasy.
The stories might happen anywhere, but those in the Garden of Heaven Trilogy burn their way through Florida's swamps, Montana's mountains, and an old city in America's heartland.
Explore The Seeker, The Sailor and The Betrayed if you can take the heat.
