My view of the world when I was young was that it was a place of adventure. This remains true. I write because I imagine, hear or see things that I feel someone could benefit from me writing about them. Egotistical and irrational, of course, but that’s the fiction writer’s curse.

I keep creating because I have this passion to reveal the power and beauty of nature.
