2022 is promising to be a great year, with two of my books in the release pipeline. How Mother Rat Invented the World, a book for children and the young at heart, has been released. Swarm: Metamorphosis, a magical realist adventure for young adults and older fantasy lovers will be available in the summer or fall of 2022. Also, I hope you will enjoy the poetry, essays, and short fiction published on this web site.

How Mother Rat Invented the World is a secular creation myth, a love letter to science and invention, a celebration of nature, and a children’s story for everyone, no matter their age, who embraces imagination, an open heart, and an enduring sense of wonder.

Swarm: Metamorphosis begins when Astrid Lund inherits her mother’s cats, five ordinary animals whose single extraordinary ability places them at the center of a three thousand year-old vendetta. Soon, Astrid finds herself and her animals transported to the time and place of the cats’ origin, the Homeric Bronze Age. Stranded amidst the violence of the Trojan war, Astrid confronts a deadly enchantress’ tragic mistake, the mystery of her mother’s past, and her own terrifying transformation.

Planned release: Fall 2022
