Meet the Author

I wrote my first book, "A New Reality - A Wake up Call to Life's Mysteries" because I had a true story I had to tell. It developed from an envelope of notes and scraps of papers collected over time from strange happenings. Being educated as an engineer and very pragmatic, I had to find answers to the occurrences. When answers arrived to every question, I had to tell the story.

I enjoyed writing the first book so much I wanted to write another but without the restriction of it being a true story. That's when I wrote, "Reluctant Gods" by asking, "What if?" The story is fantasy fiction with a set of characters who became like real people to me, each with their own quirks, flaws and personalities. I'd laugh as I wrote and pictured them interacting as if they were real and in front of me.

The feedback on the second book motivated me to stay with it and to create "Reluctant Gods II - The Demon Seth" which is now out. I hope all of you get the chance to take a look at it and let me know what you think.

My goal now is to find more time to write and spread the pleasure of a fun, entertaining story to as many readers as possible.
