I live in the mountains of western North Carolina. My partner and I share an old house with dogs, cats, and a whatever critter wanders to the bird feeder. I believe that humor is what makes the world go ’round, although love is a close second. I try to surround myself with as much of both as I can.

My first novel, a romance titled Butch Girls Can Fix Anything, won a 2008 Golden Crown Literary Society’s award for Debut Author.

After six years of the dreaded “writer’s block”, my second novel To Sleep, book one of The Soliloquy series, was released in 2013. It was a finalist for a 2014 Golden Crown Literary Society’s award in the Science Fiction/Fantasy category.

And my third, To Dream, book two of The Soliloquy series, was also a finalist in the GCLS Science Fiction/Fantasy category in 2016.

I’ve also have had both non-fiction and fiction (short stories) published over the years in online magazines. Please see the Published Works page for a list.

I have a BA in Behavioral “you want fries with that” Science and an AA in Production Crafts. In that order.

I’ve worked as a day care asst. director, hot dog vendor, program director, group home staff, janitor, convenience store clerk, greenhouse laborer, solderer, potter, baseball park concessions, numerous others gigs, and now writer. Maybe this one will stick.
