Author of Urban Fantasy and Horror

Welcome to my online home.

If you're like me, there's nothing you like better than a good read. I grew up with five older sisters, and they all loved horror movies. As a result, I was introduced to all things scary at a young age. Some of my favorite memories are of gathering around the television on a Saturday night with my family to watch a scary movie on HBO. I'd seen The Howling, Evil Dead, and Friday the 13th, all before I was old enough to date. It was only natural that when I started writing my own stories, they'd be paranormal.

Okay. Not completely paranormal. I also write romance...with monsters, and urban fantasy...with even more monsters, and horror get the idea! If you like a good monster tale as much as I do, browse my pages and check out a few of my books. The book description says whether it's a romance, urban fantasy, or horror.

Thanks for stopping by!

Bridgeport Mysteries Series News


I've decided to pull the Bridgeport Mysteries series temporarily. The third book in the series is finished. This seems like a great time to re-read the first two books and make sure the series flows together as it should. I haven't made any major changes, but now that I know so much about the…

Writing with Soul

Writing with soul. That seems like an easy thing to do, but it's a lot harder than it seems. Stephen King (who everyone knows is my favorite author) and JK Rowling have mastered infusing soul into the books they write. That's one of the reasons their books sell so well. For JK Rowling, she's not w…

Plotter or Pantser?

That's the question asked in writer circles around the world. I am a proud, card carrying, plotter.

My plotting method is a bit crazy, but it works for me. First, I plot out the beginning of the book. I go as far as I can easily get. Once I'm happy with what I have, I write…
