Creating an adventure, a love story that would leave you breathless, and a world like none imagined! That has been my motivation and my inspiration in becoming an historical fantasy author. To take you away to a world that will not only welcome you but hold you in its embrace until you must leave for a time. Only to welcome you back when the world becomes a bit hard to deal with. Escapism is it? It most certainly is, and I am proud to say I write it joyously and passionately, inviting you to leave behind your troubles, and cares for a time. The majesty of the Scottish Highlands and the ethereal beauty of Ireland come alive in the mythical realm of Rinefield!
