Dr. Scully Inspired me to Write


There weren't a lot women for a teen girl of the early 90's to look up to. Then Dana Scully came along and changed everything. Here was a confident woman, who was considered equal to her male counterpart. She was smart and challenged her partner with her intellect. I wanted to be her.

I also fell in love with the writing on the show. The long exposition heavy monologues were music to my ears. Now I have always been a writer in some form of fashion. I do recall selling speculative stories on the playground in the 3rd and 4th grade. In the 80's I found an old typewriter and spent a good couple of years writing on that. It wasn't until the X-files and my family getting a computer that I began to write in earnest.

2nd Edition of Book 1


My first novel was started in 1997. It had nothing to do with the paranormal but it did have a male and female FBI agents as the main characters. This novel, Red on the Run, was put aside for many years and wasn't completed until November 2014. I self published it in 2015 and was signed later that year with Evolved Publishing. They will be publishing the The Syndicate-Born Trilogy in 2016-2017. The second edition of this first book is going to be launched March 28, 2016.

A TV show I watched twenty-three years ago turned out to have a big impact on me as an adult. I couldn't be happier that in just four days I will be watching a brand new X-Files episode. Thank you Chris, Carter for making a show that made me want to believe...in me. Thank you Gillian Anderson for showing me through your character that it was okay to be confident and put myself out there.
