The Vampire with a Blanket of Stars, Book 3 in the Arnhem Knights series, has been released. Currently I'm working on my second series, Arnhem Knights of New York, which is vampire adventure romance. As you can see below I'm a diversified author, crossing over from Science Fiction and Fantasy. I'm still writing that too but it's not ready to publish yet. A young adult fantasy novel is on my desk. It just needs editing. I also have a yen to write a graphic novel. Why? I can help myself.
I am a writer and editor. Being an Associate Editor for Space and Time Magazine is a passion of mine. Being a writing teacher for over twenty-five years, I teach workshops from time to time at conventions. I an active member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). What does active mean? In that context, it means professional status. As paranormal romance author, I am a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and recently became RWA PAN (Published Authors Network).

Ah, my past.
My science fiction short story,"She Came to Sing," appeared in Beyond Centauri magazine, Issue 23, January 2009 issue.
I've written for anthologies and Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Magazine. Her novelette "Ladyknight" was published in Spells of Wonder.
The Library Journal called "Ladyknight" "medieval enchantment".
The character of Ladyknight is seen again in "Piper" which appeared in Sword and Sorceress IX. My story "Cecropia", a mystical tale of Ireland, appeared in Sword and Sorceress XV.
All these anthologies were edited by Marion Zimmer Bradley and published by DAW and are still available at the following sites:
