Dear Reader,

Welcome to my web page. It includes an autobiography, some FAQs (frequently asked questions), and a list of books I’ve written. I’ve thrown in a little career advice, too, for those of you who are interested in writing.

Quicksilver

Hermes, flying messenger to the gods, reveals his story of magic and mischief

Hermes—Also known as Mercury, Wayfinder, and Prince of Thieves—has many talents. Wearing his famed winged sandals, he does the bidding of his father Zeus, leads the dead down to Hades, and practices his favorite arts of trickery and theft. He also sees the future, travels invisibly, loves jokes, and abhors violence. And he's an entertaining and ideal narrator on a fast-paced journey through ancient Greek mythology—from Medusa's cave to Trojan War battlefields to the mysterious Underworld.
