My goal as a writer is to connect with readers; to evoke emotion, to entertain and, hopefully, to inform for I believe the novels we like best are the ones that take us beyond our own experience and teach us something more about the world.

I am most proud of review comments like these: 

"a think piece"

"made me laugh and cry"

"had me rooting for the good guys"

"writing is elegant, taut, and free from obscurity"

"Towards the end I was sobbing. Good thing I'm not wearing any make-up."

"writes fantastic fight scenes and adept at dialogue"

"presents a unique take on the world"

"an ordinary person placed into extraordinary situations and forced to cope"

 "I was expecting a bit of mystery and romance. It's more than that. It's a novel that makes you think about how others might see our society." 

Searching for the "next book" made easier with Shepherd.com.

Here's my contribution.
