I was first introduced to Greek history in university while in my 20s. I studied the Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War, and read it cover to cover. Since then, I’ve been dabbling in Spartan/Athenian history from the taking of Troy to the rule of Alexander the Great. I first discovered Birch Bay while on a road trip. I decided to take a road I’d never taken before, and found myself in a small coastal beach town that immediately made me feel at peace. I knew at that moment I needed to write a book that took place there.
I have written a few novels for teenagers. My work includes: Rise of the One-Eyed King (Iron Mask Press), Flying Feet (Orca), Rancor (Iron Mask Press) and Pyre (Simply Read Books). Now I work as a library tech while road tripping on weekends in my Jeep.
