Welcome to my official site. Thanks for stopping by!

This is the place to discover more about my novels, short stories and the amazing illustrations of my friend Lucia Nobrega. You won’t get a lot of info about me other than about my work (I’m a shy writer…we tend to be introverts).

In addition to being a writer, I’m a web designer and graphic artist. I’m the owner of AUSXIP.com – one of the longest running Xena sites online (born in 1996) and owner of AUSXIP Publishing – stories that inspire, strengthen and motivate. When I’m not writing, I’m creating art or designing new sites (and occasionally sleep…I hear that’s good for you). As the quote above from Helen Keller says, the most beautiful things in the world must be felt with the heart. I hope to touch the heart of my readers; make them feel and fall in love with my characters. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my labors.

Zoe’s Journal: Jumping Off The Cliff is a fictional account by a character from the Intertwined Souls Series of novels, Zoe Lambros. Zoe is a 16 year old that has lived through the German Occupation of her home town in Larissa, Greece. A courageous young woman who lost her family and her childhood, to the madness of war. She’s madly in love with Eva Muller, the daughter of the ex-German commander in Larissa. They were brought together by the village priest, though they hated one another. They helped the Jews and forged a friendship, despite the risks. They fell in love or as Zoe likes to say ‘HEAVY LIKE’.

What happens after the war ends? Read Zoe’s Journal as she and Eva try to come to terms with their lives. Each journal will bridge the books in the Intertwined Souls Series and fill in the gaps through Zoe’s eyes.
