Thank you for visiting my site.

I write, a lot. It’s a passion of mine. I’m probably off plotting ways to get my characters into trouble right now, or lying on the couch with my head hanging over the edge, wondering how my characters are going to manage to get out of the trouble I’ve gotten them in, or I might be eating ice cream. Some of my best ideas come to me when I’m not thinking at all.



Zach doesn’t believe in ghosts… but he should.

Twelve-year-old Zach is convinced he’ll never be happy without his best friend Jeremy by his side. But both of their lives changed with a bang five months ago, and as far as Zach’s concerned, it’s his fault Jeremy will never see his twelfth birthday.

When Zach moves with his family to a Chicago suburb, he quickly becomes friends with a group of thrill-seeking kids trying to find a disappearing haunted house. But Zach’s not worried. He doesn’t believe in ghosts, so he follows them into a wild, dangerous encounter that becomes a battle to decide what’s real and what’s not.


What would you do…

if you found yourself at the gates of a haunted graveyard?


This was it, the end for us. What would the headlines in the paper read? “Local Kids Vanish Into Thin Air,” maybe. Not that the reporter would know we literarlly did.

Zach Thompson, Friends to the End

A little about me

I found my love for writing in first grade when my class was sent to the library and asked to find a book for our first book report. While I don’t still have this book report, I’m very proud to say I got an A on it. My favorite thing about the book was that it had no words. That’s right, not one! That gave me the freedom to interpret the pictures in any way I wanted and write my own story.

This sparked my love for writing essays. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I sat down and penned my first novel. This story has a special place in my heart because it’s the story that helped me discover my passion for writing. I’ve since written several books, many of which may never see the light of day, but all of which helped me learn to combine my passion for writing with my fascination with all things mythical.  You’ll find examples of this in my novels. I live in Illinois with my family.

My alter ego writes stories for teens and adults. Follow the link in the tab above for a list of books.
