I remember when I was a kid, and I used to sneak into my big brother’s room and grab his ‘Tarzan’ and ‘John Carter of Mars’ paperbacks when he wasn’t looking. And I still remember the experience of discovering that I wasn’t as sneaky as I thought I was.

I still remember the joy of reading ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ and ‘The Hobbit’. I enjoy all sorts of books from all kinds of genres. Almost all the fiction books that I read are thrillers, or some kind of adventure. I tried to write my first book when I was elementary school, and again in junior high school. I hope that everyone who reads ‘Free Fall’, my first adventure, enjoys the ride.
