I have been writing for about five years. I started in other genres and magazine articles, then decided I needed the challenge of writing full length fiction. My jump into Romance was and has always been what I wanted to write, but it took a bit of time to dismiss other’s opinions and follow the path my heart wanted me to travel.
I’m a very busy lady. I have small children, and like most moms, I find that they require most of my attention. However, when they are asleep I hit my stride and find that I make the most of my time. I also have a full time job working for a publishing house called Books To Go Now out of Seattle. So when I’m not writing or parenting, I’m working with other authors in getting their titles the exposure they need.
Back in the day (pre-family) I was a trained Archeologist. This was my first passion! I loved getting into a site, getting dirty and finding artifacts that had been lost for hundreds of years. I had the distinguished honor of working on the pit houses in British Columbia—and that experience helped to shape me.
From this experience (and my love of history and archeology) I knew I had to write the book that incorporated these loves and The Nymph’s Labyrinth was born.
I love writing paranormal romance. I find that it’s one of only a few genres in which your only limitation is your own imagination. You don’t have to follow the laws of reality—you can make anything possible as long as your write it well.
I have published a sweet contemporary romance and I do like writing within that genre. If I have characters who need me to write within the genre, I would think about moving. However, I find that most of the characters that find their ways into my mind are usually paranormal based.
I must add that my style of writing is similar to that of Charlaine Harris in the fact that it is ‘light’ paranormal—I write characters in everyday life who experience paranormal experiences. My titles are closer to reality than Sci-fi.
She is also the Marketing and Promotions Manager for Books To Go Now publishing. When she’s not working she can be found in the wilds of Montana working on her patience while she tries to understand the allure of various crafts (quilting, pottery and painting are not her thing). She always believe the cup is neither half full nor half empty, but it better be filled with wine.
Can Ariadne have the man she loves or will the pressure and secrets of the past keep her from her heart’s desire?
