I grew up in a world of magic. By the time I was ten I understood nature, talked to the trees, and listened to the wind. When the kingdom of men conquered my town, I was murdered by one of my own—the betrayer of my kind.
But I didn’t stay dead.
I woke to find myself in a strange new world called Los Angeles. The only keys to the life I remembered were my father’s ring, my unique abilities, and the onslaught of demons that seemed hell-bent on finding me. Now I must learn who I really am, protect my friends, get the girl, and find my way back to my beloved hometown of Orenda.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The entire Crossing Death series resulted from two dreams that I combined into one story.
From Max the dog, to Madame Lucacious’ test on the hillside, to the Death Ring, to the surprise at the end of Book One, and even further on to the ending to the whole series, all of came to me in a dream. I played Edmund, and as a result all of his losses were mine. It was my family, my friends, and my childhood that were betrayed.
As a funny side note: in my dream I had died and come back so many times, and had visited so many “worlds,” that when my alarm went off and I didn’t have “the ring” on my finger I wasn’t sure if I was dead or alive, in the dream or out of the dream. I walked into a building where a friend of mine was standing, and asked her “can you see me!?” I wasn’t convinced that she could without the ring… Oops… that may have given something away about book 2 😉
