About Me

I’m a poet and an author of four (going on five) novels. After not writing for almost ten years, I returned to writing via blogging my poetry here in 2012.  Daily prompts saved my writer’s soul and brought me back to that “happy place” I’d always longed to return to.  Even though my poetry seems dark at times, it’s my outlet and the only way I can express myself.

From poems, I began writing short stories again and from those stories, novels.  It certainly felt great to write novels again, though this time, I self-published them,  and I couldn’t be happier.  Since 2014, I’ve published four full-length novels and quite a few short stories, some of those stories you’ll find here.  My latest book, Loving Riley, the sequel to Loving Ashe, is scheduled for release on April 26. If you’d like to check out my writing, I suggest you start with either Loving Ashe or Everything She Ever Wanted.

Among my favorite authors are Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Harold Robbins (yes, that Harold Robbins from the 70’s, my first introduction to novels when I found three books hidden on the top shelf of the family library), J.K. Rowling, Frank McCourt, Anais Nin, John Ajvide Lindqvist (Let the Right One In), Michel Farber (Under the Skin), and Diana Gabaldon. There are so many others, but I’ll keep it to these for now.

You can learn more about my books here, which are available to purchase on Amazon and other retailers.

    1. Thank you for nominating me for the Sunshine and WordPress Family awards! Erm, what the hell is it? 😀

      It’s my first nomination, too, and I guess I have to prepare my speech now and get ready for my close up, too!

      Now off to read what I need to do to collect my prize 🙂

      1. I really just wanted to acknowledge people who have made my online life a happier place – I love your posts and comments. These awards were passed to me so I thought you were a worthy recipient to pass them on to.

  1. Thanks for liking my post. Maybe I should follow the daily prompts too…I am sometimes lacking in inspiration. And by sometimes I mean “often”. All the best with your blog! 🙂

    1. Oh definitely not, James!

      I’ve just been working on some graphics on my laptop, trying to decide whether to take the tree down and finally put away the christmas decorations – among other interesting developments in the fangirl front, and there’s some writing that I need to do as well to fulfill my goal of completing my novel for 2014 🙂

      I’ve played your playlist while doing most of the above – and thank you for the choice of songs you picked out! I love we can make playlists on youtube and just watch and listen as we do stuff around the house or while losing ourselves on the internet doing stuff 🙂

  2. Thank you for the follow. I wish you all the best on your novel. Being from the Philippines, I am intrigued as to what the plot of your tale will be.

    1. You register at the nanowrimo.org website, upload your document during the Nanowrimo writing month and when it’s 50K or higher (whatever your word count goal is) then you get the winner tag thingy to download 🙂

I'd love to hear what you think!
