I wrote my first novel when I was twelve. It was a rambling saga about Vikings sailing up a long Russian river and getting confused about how long it takes to sail up a long Russian river.
I was hooked. All I wanted to do was write more novels.
But life offers many wonderful experiences, and I sailed up many side tributaries to explore. I climbed big cliffs. I taught teenagers to question reality. I pretended to be a local in a small cafe on the streets of many foreign towns.
All the while I kept writing. For fun. Or to get published. Or just because. Now I have finished something, and I am happy to share it with you.
The Fifth Sense is my first published novel.
