I’m a born and raised Southern California girl who loves sunny days, horror movies, and traveling. I’ve had a love of words since I was a little girl, and spent several summers reading as many books as I could get my hands on. My love of reading led to a love of writing. I’ve been keeping diaries, which turned into journals, since I was ten years old. My goal was always to write a novel, but I wasn’t certain I could until I stopped wishing for it and started doing it.

Watch for Participant, a literary/women’s fiction book, to release in the spring of 2018.

Cassandra signs up for modeling school in her twenties. Will that save her from herself, or is modeling school just for kids?

Cassandra spends most sunny California days in a drab cubicle, toiling away at a job that crushes her soul, and goes home to a dysfunctional relationship that is doing a number on her heart. Plagued with discontent and haunted by an unsettling melancholy, she only worsens after her fiancé of almost three years packs up his things and leaves.

Desperate to pull herself out of a downward spiral, she spends money she doesn’t have on classes at the Chloe Dillon Modeling and Acting Center. Unexpectedly, she discovers a passion for acting.

Self-discovery and new friendships abound at the Chloe Dillon Modeling and Acting Center, where she opens her eyes to positive affirmations and mingles with talented, ambitious classmates. She’s turning her life around, painstakingly learning to love life… and herself. As she battles her way through self-doubt, fear, and depression, she musters the courage to risk it all, quitting her dreaded job and pursuing a huge opportunity that could help her break into the acting industry.

In the throes of preparation for the big industry showcase, Cassandra learns that her estranged fiancé has been diagnosed with a serious illness. In a financially and emotionally precarious situation, she must choose between a newly discovered ambition that might never become reality, and the relative safety and sense of loyalty she feels for the only man she has ever loved.

I’m a freelance writer and filmmaker, born in 1975 in The Gong, who now lives in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia with my wife and two sons.

I used to make my own mystery books in the fourth grade by typing them out on an old Olivetti, and I drew my first five-fingered human being when I was four years old.

In 2004, I pitched a comic series to Image Comics, and I contributed cartoons and designed a cover for the Litmus Journal of Melbourne in 2007.

I worked with the Victims of Crime department in Sydney, rubbing shoulders with ex-cons and stand over men, and sought restitution for their victims.

In 2014, I founded a production company, Glitchfilms, alongside my producing partner. In 2015, I wrote and directed an independent horror film, The Lights, which was released in selected cinemas. I self-published the tie-in, behind-the-scenes eBook, Dark Light: How to Get Your Horror Film into Cinemas.

I write every day and try to put some of myself into my writing. My passion is crime fiction, and my favourite authors include Karin Slaughter and Michael Robotham. I also love graphic novels by Neil Gaiman and Grant Morrison.

Clues point him in many directions, including an ex-bikie ice trafficker, two masked figures in a warehouse, and even the victim’s fiancée, who may have wanted Matt’s cousin out of her way.

Now, Matt has unwittingly exposed those he loves to a ruthless black-racketeering syndicate, and he must track a killer before they take out his family.

On his own and up against heavy odds, he exposes a horrific crime with devastating consequences, which will affect the town forever.

Patrick spends as much time as possible turning coffee into collections of words that look like books, shorts, and screenplays. Most of his stories attempt to look for the meaning of life in an adventurous way, and often employ humor, important since the search usually doesn’t turn up much. He is scared to use semi colons and rarely puts his seat back on airplanes.

A peculiar explorer and downtrodden acrobat span the globe on a building-sized hot air balloon, in search of a precious artifact and the murderous treasure hunter who seeks it.

Watch for (the tentatively titled) The Colonel and the Acrobat, a harrowing literary adventure, to release in the spring of 2018.

Beatrix, a spirited but abused acrobat in a traveling circus, seeks more than her prison-like employment offers. More than anything, she wants to know her place in the world of the halcyon 19th century, a time when the last dark corners of the map were being sketched out and travel still possessed a kind of magic.

One night in Switzerland, the mysterious Colonel James Bacchus attends Beatrix’s show. This larger-than-life English gentleman, reputed to have a voracious appetite for female conquests, is most notable for traveling the world in a four-story hot air balloon called The Ox.

Beatrix flees that night to join the Colonel, and the two of them make a narrow escape—Beatrix from her abusive ringleader, the Colonel from a freshly-made cuckold. Beatrix, feeling the Colonel may have the answers to her problems, pledges to help him catch the criminal he seeks in exchange for passage on his magnificent balloon.

The criminal seeks a precious figurine, The Blue Star Sphinx, but he’s not alone. The Sphinx’s immense value has also drawn the attention of the world’s most deadly treasure hunters. A murder in Antwerp begins a path of mystery that leads all the way to the most isolated island on Earth.

What dangers await the Colonel and the acrobat?

Beautiful young Kate has three men in her life—the aristocrat who wants to bed her, the suitor who wants to marry her, and the man who must save her.

Born into the Scottish working class, Kate McLaren is a servant. When Lord Des McGregor, a member of the wealthy elite, woos her, she falls in love. Her life in tatters, she escapes and marries James Casey, a young man from her village. They live in London, where James’ career thrives, they start a family, and Kate struggles to find her place in society.

Lord Mark St. John, owner of the shipping company where James clerks, becomes the couple’s benefactor. Mark divides his time between London and his country estate, Stonebeck Hall, where his traditionalist mother, independent sister, and shy wife reside.

When Kate crosses paths with Des again, he becomes obsessed with her.

Then the Great War comes along and changes everything. As Kate struggles to make a new life for herself with James away at war, she suffers a grief too great to bear—a dark night of the soul—and stumbles upon a secret that threatens her very existence.
