ABOUT

Me at two years old, already dreaming up stories.

As a young girl with dreams of being a writer, I got lucky. I  lived out my childhood in a quiet, wooded, winding-country-road sort of town called Eighty-Four, Pa. I had lots of time to daydream, read, lounge in the grass and create worlds beyond the one in front of me.

As an adult with dreams of being a writer, I have figured out luck does have a lot to do with it but so does perseverance, stubbornness, willingness to “know what you don’t know” and good old-fashioned sit-your-butt-in-the-chair and just do it. Lots of this last one. Years and years, in fact.

 

Writing allows me to explore a lot of my interests and honestly, they are conflicted. I’ve always been fascinated by the paranormal … ghosts, psychics, hauntings, curses, magick and unexplained mysteries. I tapped into these interests for my Pet Psychic Mystery series, along with my love of animals, of course.

On the flip side, I have a deep love of and respect for science: quantum mechanics, consciousness, artificial intelligence, genetic manipulation, time travel … these are the subjects that light me up inside. Raising my geek flag high here, I know, but my scientific interests inspired me to write the two books in my DNA series.

So, whether we’re talking about dark energy or spirit energy, it’s all the same to me … and no matter what label my writing is given—mystery, thriller, science fiction—it will always involve the human condition: Love, loss, grief and hope because when it comes down to it, this is our shared experience.

I’ve also learned that writers need readers. We need you like crack, really. So, thanks for taking the time to visit me here and feel free to email me and say hello. I love hearing from readers!

I’ll leave you with the quote that sums it up best for me:
