About Me

I discovered my love of writing at the tender age of fifteen where it would lie dormant until I began teaching. After completing a degree in Education from the University of South Carolina, I got a job teaching, then quit two years later to homeschool my children. I have written well over a dozen novels since then, romantic mysteries that involve the things that pique my interest. I love watching old black and white science fiction movies. I also love British television, especially mysteries and comedies from the eighties and nineties. Anything out of the realms of the ordinary or mysterious, alien encounters, crop circles, standing stones, UFO sightings, ghosts, hauntings, reincarnation stories, and animal communication catches my attention, particularly where individuals have been marginalized as a result of their experiences.

I love to read medieval romance, mysteries, and anything mystical. And I love writing romance and romantic mysteries as much as I love reading them.

My favorite modern day romance authors are, in no particular order, Elizabeth Lowell, Linda Howard, Tami Hoag, Hannah Howell, and Karen Marie Moning.

On Saturdays, you’ll find me spending the afternoon with my daughter, baking our current favorite treat. I even have a blog where I share some of my most favorite dessert recipes—Recipes from a Writer.
