About the Author
I was born in the summer of love in 1967, and I’ve been a writer since I first learned how to string words together – but I haven’t been an author. An author finishes works they’ve started. Instead of becoming an author, I had a career and a family, and along the way I accumulated a drawer full of incomplete works.
My first novel was an accident. Variants of a story had been floating around in my head for years as novels “to- be” that never became. The various story bits and subplots found their way into comic book scripts which became graphic novels, but the core story remained unused. I was itching to get back into prose – so I cracked my knuckles and sat down to write whatever came to mind. What came out was the first draft of The Paragon of Animals.
The moral to this story is that life is a journey – as long as you keep on walking, you’ll end up somewhere you wanted to be.
|The Paragon of Animals
Growing up as a nerd in a small midwestern town, Liza didn’t have the easiest life. Then she met the Paragon, the super powered man whose poster hung over her bed. By accident they traded places, she got his body…he got hers. Then things got REALLY crazy.
|To Thine Own Self Be True
Liza’s life as the super hero Paragon was busy, but it left a hole that wasn’t filled. Then she met Leon. Their relationship turned her life upside down, but not in a good way. The worst three dates followed and cost her not only Leon, but her job and the home and the legal protection that went with it. She had to decide what mattered to most, and what she was willing to do about it.
|Our Super Mom: Family Matters
The super hero Paragon has retired to raise her children, but the old life won’t let her go, and even with powers, being a mom isn’t easy.
