I am a full time writer and have had quite a few books published so far in BOTH e-book and paperback
formats. One of the books, Flight of the Raven, came from ideas my eleven-year-old niece Amanda had. Since she didn't know how to put them into book form, she asked me and we came up with the young adult novel. We acquired an agent who seems extremely excited about representing the book, so we have high hopes for it. Keep an eye out for us in bookstores, Mickey Stroda and Amanda Rhodes. I am currently in the process of writing the next in a series about a female vampire, and have quite a few more in the works.
I'm getting better at HTML, but I do hope you will be patient with me.
I hope to have more to offer in the near future.
Please come back often to view the changes as I will soon be adding more of the many
poems I've written (as well as poems by others) and sections from my
latest novels and short stories. You'll be glad you did. (I hope.)
Some of my favorite horror writers are Stephen King, Anne Rice, Christopher Pike, Dean Koontz and R.L. Stine. Other authors I like reading are Emily Dickinson, Poe, John Grisham. I have a wide variety of reading tastes.
I'm looking for info on my ancestors (as well as living relatives); Names:
Coiner, Kainer, Bell, Eversoll, Stroda and Vinduska. Maybe we can
help each other.
Page two of my site has the synopsis and critique of Bailey's Pond as well as the cover art for the book. Page three has the first chapter of Bailey's Pond. Page four has the first chapter of Blood Ties ~ The Beginning and Page five has the first chapter of Flight of the Raven. I hope you enjoy the excerpts. The books are in the process now of becoming paperbacks. So far, the only two I have available in paperback are Bailey's Pond and Blood Ties ~ The Beginning, but the others are on their way. Recently, I acquired an agent to represent me in my quest for an offline publisher. Wish me luck!
