I am honored that you are interested in learning more about me. I guess the first thing I should share with you is that I am a huge fan of imagination, dreams, and creative ideas. We define ourselves in such things.
I've been a writer for as long as I can remember and that is a very good thing because I'm not very good at sports. Yes, I was the little kid that closed her eyes when the ball came by! I grew up back and forth between California and Arkansas, and I love fried catfish as much as I do sushi. The things I hold closest to my heart are faith, family, friends, and old-timey stuff.
What old-timey stuff you ask? Well, I like aprons, old books, and cooking things from scratch that most folks prefer to buy -- like homemade pies and jams!
I hold a degree in Communications which gives me super powers for talking (not), but I do like to yack. Aside from writing fiction, I am a journalist and copywriter. Writing is pretty much what I do while I'm breathing in and out. I love writing YA fiction, particularly paranormal romance because there's nothing better than a love story with a little make-believe thrown in. If I'm not writing YA fiction, or Sci-Fi fiction...I'm reading YA or Sci-Fi fiction!
Things I don't like - I'm not comfortable with selfishness, I despise rudeness, and I am known to be slightly terrified of roller-coasters, and other thrill-seeking activities...like escalators. Did I mention that I'm a huge Disneyland freak? It is my favorite place in the whole world.
I live in the desert (tumbleweeds inspire my writing) in California with my husband, two sons, and two very spoiled little dogs. I love rural living, but can't be too far from the city for very long. One does need to shop.
