Writing rebels who rise from the ashes.

I live for writing, adventure, learning, chocolate, family, love, and really great musical theater (not necessarily in that order). I also live by the motto: You don’t get what you don’t ask for. I’m thinking it should be on my tombstone someday. 

Since I’ve never been one to color inside the lines of life, it means my characters typically don’t either. I have a super soft spot for rebels who rise from the ashes of their circumstances. I’ve been the phoenix a time or two (or ten) in my life…been there, done that, got the tattoo. Seriously. I have a phoenix tattoo and it reminds me, every day, of what I’ve overcome.

I love all kinds of stories, but Fantasy and Science Fiction are my absolute faves. There’s just something about the endless possibilities of exploring all of what it means to be human through the lens of vampires, werewolves, and time travelers.

I love adventure, too, and my biggest ones (so far) have been riding a motorcycle through Namibia and South Africa and hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon (took my knees forever to recover from that one). As a life-long learner, I dig doing new things, and I love helping other people learn. My 20+ year career as an instructional designer helped me do that for a long time but FINALLY, I get to do what I’ve always dreamed of doing: Write for a living.

One other thing, I have The Cutest Mini Goldendoodle on the planet, my buddy, Indy (so named because I wanted to legitimately say “We named the DOG Indiana”).
