Let me tell you about one of my best friends.

I am thankful for all the people who supported me and put up with me resounding ideas off them  throughout the years. Not just close friends and family but to the many people whom I have met since returning online.

 You were there throughout all my many writings ups and downs.

But one of my greatest supporters in writing romance surprising was not a woman but a man. He was my best friend. It was he, who was one of my strongest supporters told me one day when I was complaining about not being able to find a job. He said “One should never wait for anyone to give you a job, or anything, always create that which you want. If you want something  then you must create it. Never allow lack of opportunity to stop you from doing anything you would like to do. That writing is  bold adventure. It is you who determines where it goes not anyone else. You wants to write?! Then write. Rather you earn a living from it not, you will earn the satisfactory and confident in knowing that you have written something that will outlast yourself.”

    He passed away before I ever laid pen to the paper but is my greatest inspiration in creating these books. So, I made him immortal in one of my characters. From every trait to personality and all. (Nope, it’s not Ashton who is based upon him.)

   How we met was in the local library, we were both always in the classic literature section. We both had a love for books and the classics. After several weeks of meeting to quote classics. We decided we would invite our spouses to dinner to get to know each other and both of their replies were the same; “We are so happy you two found each other for you guys were killing us with things like, “Who was the wife of Othello?” and when we say we don’t know. You two would spend the next hour explaining the character to us.” In short, they were saying we were driving them crazy. LOL!!

Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga," which should be finished this year. She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book came from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
