I have been telling stories since I was little but only recently started showing them to anyone (so would appreciate any feedback - happy to give some in return).

I love folklore and old fairytales. Whenever I visit a town big enough to have a dedicated section for local books, I always check of any on local legends.

I also play violin and mandolin and know a large collection of folk songs.

The world is made up of stories, be it on paper, in song, or on stage, and I love all of them.

I have finished Seeking the Light and am in the final editing stages. I have started on its sequel, Crossfire, which is about 2/3 of the way through the first draft. I also once wrote a novel-length story on the basis that every chapter had to relate to a different folk song. That story ended up being a prequel to Seeking the Light (by 350 years or so).

I also have 2 complete drafts for The Hiding and its sequel (which has no name yet) but they are still undergoing editing. I will publish the Hiding as I edit it.
