I make a living as a financial adviser. I think about money when the markets are open, and then I think about the fantasy world my characters inhabit. I try not to move into the fantasy world, but it’s hard, because it is so much more fun than the real world of money. I live in Fredericksburg, Texas, and do a lot of walking, most recently at Cross Mountain Park at the north edge of town with my two border collies. Many of my stories have popped into my head while I was walking. Until I got the border collie puppy, I walked at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area several times each week, which is where the Enchanted Rock Stories came from.
