It was in the back of those two businesses where, as a child, she developed a wild imagination. She thought skeletons lived in the attic, monsters lurked behind corners, and ghosts haunted The Spot. Her course as a fantasy writer was set from this young age.
When her folks moved back to Carlsbad, she imagined aliens peeking in through the living room windows, thereby broadening her interests to include science fiction.
As an adult she began to notice that human behavior in general is strange, alien, and monstrously scary at times. Therefore, she never lacks for new and imaginative plots in her stories.
She writes science fiction and fantasy with occasional splashes of steampunk here, dashes of urban fantasy there, and a pinch or two of speculative fiction scattered throughout.
When she isn’t writing, she likes to design her own jewelry pieces. She also likes to crochet, especially in the winter.
She crafts her stories while sitting in her favorite corner of her sectional sofa, her trusty dog, Raymond, ever at her side. Her daughter’s cat too, perched on the back of the sofa watching birds fly by. Within her reach is a coffee mug or a glass of raspberry lemonade. If she gets cold she’ll move from her couch corner to her rocking chair by the fire in the kitchen. Or…find me over on my Facebook page!
She writes at any time of the day she can spare, preferring mornings but the afternoon works well too. At night she likes to pile up with her family on the sectional sofa to watch a DVD or Netflix streaming.
She writes because it is a part of who she is. Stories have always formed in her mind for as long as she can remember. She began writing some of them down in grade school and she has kept journals ever since she learned to print in the first grade. In a way, writing is her primary means of communication, the best means of expressing who she is to the world.
