She released her first poetry ebook, "Light Through Shuttered Window", in December 2007. The 90 page ebook is a compendium of her poems about life, love and the process of creativity.
Her newest release “Anti-Vigilante and The Rips in Time” is a science fiction novel set in the distant future with its hooks deep into renewable energy and the changing face of the planet. Here is a synopsis of the book:
“Terrax, the Crystal Planet, is an exacting world. A place where human physical contact is impossible and stepping outside is virtual suicide. The atmosphere is a hurricane of Coriolis winds and deadly scattershowers, composed of toxic metals formed into whip-like threads kilometers long. Immense Ocean Domes cover over the toxic sludge where the oceans used to be.
The surface of Terrax is covered in crystalline structures, called the Hives, where only the upper crust lives. No one can survive the raw elements; all must reside inside buildings, vicariously living through virtual reality programming.
To believe the tales of “Olde Earth”, a place where clean water flowed from the sky, where the outdoor air was breathable, and edible food grew out of the ground? These were no more than nestling’s stories, ancient mythology from a distant Time.
Until the Rips in Time occurred...…What happens next changes Terrax forever.”
