Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My social media presence is UncoveredMyths. I uncover and display the hidden societal myths we hide behind, and try to show the forgotten side.
I began with Crosswinds: Past, Present, and Future combine to show the effects of our lost cultures and pasts on our present, and how it can help heal the future.
I began the Trails Series, three pairs of novels, each in a different place time, that uncover societal and environmental challenges, both natural, and manmade.
At the request of friends, I completed Coffee, Tea, and Gluten Free: The Cookbook, and it's novel about learning to live gluten free.
Another request was to write Journey Through the Lists, to help myself and my friends stay organized.
My last pair of novels will be about abuse survivors. This will help uncover the myths that hide abuse of all types in plain sight in our society. It will also try to find ways to help individuals and society heal.
There is also a pair of short story collections. Life After Life: Three Paranormal Short Stories is available now, and the Science Fiction Short Stories should be available in a year or so.

Soul Bubbles is an odd look at a future in which babies are created and born outside the body, although a few souls were so damaged in past lives, they feel they must try birth in the old way, and it to return. However, the guardians don't desire this. With the new way of birth, abuse of children and women has nearly disappeared. The old way is like opening Pandora's box. Can it be re-opened without the damage it created in lives past?
