Can you tell us a little about yourself and how you got into writing?

I’m a single dad of two daughters, who keep me very busy! I run a graphic design business, called MAD Design, which I also use to publish my books. When I can find the time (less and less lately!) I also enjoy coaching youth soccer.

I’ve always written, ever since I was little, but in most cases I would start something but not have an ending, or vice versa. Business was a little slow a few summers ago, so I thought I’d give this story a shot. About four months later, I had a complete first draft finished. Then, I sent it out to a few friends and relatives who encouraged me to take it farther. I haven’t really looked back since.

Can you tell us a little about your series?

The stories chronicle the adventures of Jenni Kershaw and her eighth grade classmates after they get sent to a magical world called Mother, and eventually transform into different beings that are native to their new home. They battle evil, and sometimes themselves, along their journey to discover just who they all really are.
In your novel Jenni and her classmates are unknowingly transported to another world, if you could go to any other world/era where would you go and why?
Tough question! I guess I’d want to go someplace that was either full of magic, or enough scientific advances to mimic magic. I’m always dreaming beyond the confines of our world.

What is your fave genre to read and why?

I love reading fantasy and science fiction equally. I suppose I’m really an explorer at heart!

Who is one author you would recommend my readers check out?

Only one?! Wow, that’s tough. I’ll pick another Indie who’s looking for more fans, like myself, and say Elise Stokes. She’s written a couple of middle grade adventure/super hero books about a girl named Cassidy Jones. They’re both well-written, fun reads.

Why should we read your books in one sentence?

I write simply to entertain, so if you want a fun, exciting escape from the everyday, give my stories a try!
