My kind of author.
She lives near the mountains (in New Zealand), and loves walking alongside the river, which is where she dreams up her stories.

Other things she likes are her two cats, Toby and Steve, chocolate in any form and watching sunsets at the beach.

writing The New World trilogy proved to be one of the most exciting
challenges of my life, if anyone had told me six years ago I’d be
writing science fiction action-adventure novels, I would have
declared them bonkers! For most of my life, I had been an engineering
and programming nerd whose main reading materials included technical
scientific articles and books with little time to read novels of any
sort of fiction.
few dreams I experienced during my lengthy career as a Sr. Software
Development Manager at IBM mostly focused on conjuring solutions to
tough technical issues at work. Never did sleep delve into imagining
some fictional adventure. But that all changed after I retired from
IBM in March of 2007 at age 53 with 30 rewarding years of service.
The extra time on my hands provided plenty of hours to devote to more
initial attempt at writing capitalized on my 30 years of investing in
all sorts of financial assets. I wanted to share my knowledge with
our children to aid their financial planning. After completing more
than 400 pages of the manuscript, I joined a writers’ group. The
members liked the technical content but advised me to liven it up to
make in more attractive for my younger target audience of high school
and collage graduates getting a start on life. I came up with an
fictional world and a couple of quirky characters to weave into my
members loved the improvements, but an unexpected problem bared
itself: my brain refused to churn out nightly ideas about
investments. Instead, my dreams gushed with captivating characters
and an intriguing new world with plenty of vicious beasts lurking in
the shadows of my mind. I had no choice but to follow the fate which
unfolded night after night, providing oodles of exciting material to
more than fulfill any writing desires. I provided my financial
manuscript to my daughters, and from that exhilarating change of
direction in 2014, I’ve been creating a fascinating new world at the
turn of the next century!
began writing my first novel, The New World: A Step
Backward in June of 2014 and published it on June 28, 2015.
A little over a year later, on October 1, 2016, I published Book 2 of
the series, The New World: Blue Moon Generation. After a
bit of a delay due to the challenges of a serious family illness, I
completed the final novel of the Trilogy, The New World:
Crimson Winter and published it on November 6, 2018.

As Ruthie goes on college summer break with her Dad to a familiar vacation spot, it doesn’t start off quite how she expected.

What others have to say about the book:
Review from Charei Mace “Just finished reading your book, please tell me there is a sequel? I loved it! (more…)
Five girls, related to each other and of the same age, are given the names of five princesses. Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Ariel and Bell. This should please them to no end, especially being as their last name is Princess. However, the girls do all in their power to have nothing to do with their cartoon counterparts.
They live next door to each other and have been friends since they were born. Because of this they donâ€™t have friends outside their family. Their lives could be harder if it were only one girl with a princess name. Instead they have been good so far except for the pesky teasing they get from everyone in school. That all changes when a handsome young man moves in across the street from the girls. They became fast friends and do everything together during the summer.
Now the princesses are ready to go to High School and become somebody different than princesses â€¦ that is until a horrible witch discovers their secrets and makes them public. On the first day of school they find out that life will be quite miserable for them, as they are called names and made fun of by all the other students. Being bullied in school was just raised a notch higher. Life is hard enough without having to live in fear of High School.
The princesses at first donâ€™t know what to do, but one of their fairy grandmothers gives them an idea. From that moment on they work together to change the view the rest of the students have of them. Will this last resort work for them?
This book is entertaining, a page-turner, and a great clean read for Young Adults and their families alike.
