I have been fortunate to meet remarkable people from all over the world, most of them good, others not so much. My novels essentially retell stories inspired by the actions of real people in challenging situations. I believe that it is interesting to understand multi-faceted personalities that are fascinating and evil at the same time, making it difficult to make quick judgements about right and wrong.
Before I started writing fiction, I was an Army Officer and a business executive. My education includes degrees in Political Science and International Relations. I am a published author of three management books and various business articles.
Currently, I am following my passion by writing the Tess series of adventure novels. The first two were Tess Awakening and its sequel Tess Valkyrie. Both books are also available in a combined version, Tess – Valkyrie Awakening. The fourth book is Tess: Valkyries United – The Abomination of Human Trafficking, a powerful examination of a global problem.
Based on real contemporary events, the stories explore the challenges posed by international political developments and the issues that professional women face in today’s world. The setting of the stories starts with the second Gulf War in Iraq and continues up to the current era.
Action, intrigue, deceit, obsession, sensuality, the use of wealth to achieve one’s goals, the struggle between good and evil are a constant theme.
