Author Info:

I live in a house with 1 man, 3 kiddos, and multiple dogs and cats… it is a busy place around here. So when I am not feeding an animal, or a person, or driving a child to school, an appointment, or a music lesson, I sit down with my laptop in hand and try to get the stories out of my head. I have had a love of sci-fi since I was a kid... watching Star Trek with my father.  I am such a junky for action packed sci-fi movies to this day... thanks Dad!  That love started to include the supernatural/paranormal as I reached my teens.  I will always thank Anne Rice and Lestat for introducing me to a whole new genre... and my love vampire fiction was born.  When I began writing, I didn't even consider the YA paranormal genre.  I started two previous projects that I couldn't finish, and I never knew why.  But, when I started to write - A Chance for Charity (The Immortal Ones) - the story poured out of me and I loved every minute of the writing process!  I still have those other stories, and someday I plan to go back and finish them.

I am a crafter by nature!  This probably also explains my love of writing - it is in the creative family. I love to create and I have a room in my home dedicated to crafts.  Paper, ribbons, stickers, die-cuts, there is a whole mess of supplies!  At one time I was in the handcrafted wedding/party invitation business.  You should see my kiddos' birthday invitations!

My other love is baking, although I don't do a ton of it.  Because if I bake it, then I want to eat it!  Cookie creation is a fun process.  I like to see how many yummy ingredients I can cram into a recipe.  So far, my favorite cookie is an oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chip, toffee bit cookie - YUM! You can find that recipe on my (somewhat inactive) blog :)
