I came up with the idea for this story during one of the lowest points of my life. A friend who I had considered like a brother to me abandoned me without so much as a word. It was at a time where I was dealing with a lot of stress and grief due to bullying at school and complications in my parents’ divorce. I was heartbroken. After a while, I didn’t want to be angry or upset anymore, so I took that pain and pushed myself to create something beautiful from it.

I've been reading and writing nearly my whole life, but in fact "Wrong Place, Right Time" is my first published book.
As it's a romance, it was inspired in part by my own relationship with my husband. I really enjoyed writing it because any love relationship, real or imagined, is a fascinating character study.
This story is set in the fictional, "alternative history" nation of Sevia, a small country in Southeastern Europe. It's a place marked by ethnic conflict and violence, but, as you will see when you read "Wrong Place, Right Time," a great love story can happen anywhere!
Immeasurable imagination. Unmitigated magic. Spectacular style.
The clockwork man is crafted, to begin with, his father commissioned by that terrible tyrant Time to create her a slave for all eternity. His brain boasts balance wheels and torsion springs; he can wind himself up with a key in his side; and, most importantly, his gyroscopic tourbillon heart glimmers with pure diamond.
He is a living being and he is art, and he refuses to remain a slave forever. He therefore slips through Time’s fingers as the Sands of Time slip through the cracks of reality (at least, when the time cats aren’t using them as a litter box).
Among astounding adventures, despite harrowing hardships, and in between escaping interfering enchanters, the clockwork man seeks his imagination, his purpose, and his name.
