About Me

Hi!  I’m happy you’re here.  I live in Colorado, hoping that if I live here long enough I can be a native.  It’s the best place I’ve ever lived.

I have adored fantasy, sci-fi and romance stories since I was young.  My father took me to the opening of every Star Wars, finding the patience to wait in line for who knows how many hours.  As a result, I am a nerd of epic proportions. My dad and I have continued the Star Wars tradition, taking my kids to every opening night of the new films.  Recently,  my oldest just told me he would continue doing this with his kids. That’s the definition of WINNING!

I write fantasy and paranormal romance. I love the every day with a mix of magic, of something otherworldly.

In between writing, I am an avid costumer.  Steampunk is one of my favorite types of costume – the rest depends on my mood and what shiny new idea has caught my eye – and the fact that you can steampunk anything. Well, that and G Force. I love my Jason the Condor (or Joe the Condor, depending on when you watched it)!

I love to hear from fans, so if you have something you want to know, feel free to drop me an email.

  1. Any suggestions on how to get the characters in my head to stop crowding when I’m trying to write?
    I’ve written several scenes for a number of stories, it’s how I get it out. But when I work on 1, the others want me to work on theirs. Beginning or end flows, middle doesn’t and not sure how to fix it.

    1. It sounds like you’re trying to figure out the plot line. Take the time to plot the story – not the scenes, but the story you want to tell. What’s the beginning, what is the inciting incident that gets the story rolling? At the end, what is the goal? What does your MC want? The middle, which is one of the toughest parts, is the story of how what MC wants is frustrated and stalled, and how MC gets around it.

      Good luck!
