The 2007 Nanowrimo challenge in November triggered my addiction with writing. When I discovered ebooks and romance novels in 2008, the rush was on. April 2008 I began writing what became my first published work – Wolf Signs released March 2009.
Becoming a writer has given me friends from around the world, and allows me continue to use my imagination. Peter Pan had something right – there’s a part of me that never wants to grow up. Playing pretend is too much fun. It’s also possible to write anywhere in the world.
I enjoy reading and writing both contemporary and paranormal works. Outdoor experiences figure prominently in my work partly because I’ve traveled extensively with my husband and family – to places with and without running water. My current highest elevation reached is 5500m (over 17,000 feet) (Peru). I can help build a house, sew enough to repair just about anything, and I know far more than 101 uses for Duct tape.
I hope you enjoy my work, and if you have any questions you can reach me via my contact form.
