I love stories. Suspense, mystery, romance, drama, comedy--I love them all. Film or book, give me a good yarn over reality any day. My only requirement is that the characters catch my interest and don't let go.
In writing my own stories, it's human nature that intrigues me more than anything. What makes a person do what they do? Say what they say? Why do they try so hard to do the right thing, but sometimes, even with the best intentions, fail terribly?
Friendships also figure prominently in my stories because my own friendships have meant so much to me over the years. Whether light-hearted or gritty, in the end it's the relationships between people that make a tale worth telling.
