Bio

You came here looking to learn a bit more about me. I wanted to give you something more personal and interactive. Not the usual canned bio that goes in an author's book.

 

Well, here goes. I've lived in the Appalachian Mountains my entire life. I met my soulmate and married him a month after we met. That was over thirty years ago. Sounds like true love, right? I know it's true love. We are closer now than we have ever been. We have an adult daughter who has developmental delays and severe mental health disorders. She lives at home with us. Two adorable fur babies round out our family. 

I've been an avid reader since learning how to read. I would read on the bus on the way home after school ended each day. I read anything I could get my hands on, including ingredient labels on food. My first romance novel was The Flame and The Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss. It rocked my world in more ways than one. It was an intense, dramatic enemies-to-lovers love story that lit the writing bug in my young heart. I began writing not long afterwards but was discouraged to continue as writing was not seen as an appropriate career to pursue and romance books were not seen as being appropriate by my traditional parents. 

Writing went on the back shelf while I grew up, fell in love, and became a wife. I returned to school for a master's degree during my daughter's worst struggles with bipolar disorder. I have worked in the behavioral health treatment field since 2013. 

Pursuing a doctoral degree made me realize an important fact. I don't like school and writing academic papers. The urge to write creatively returned in the winter of 2019. Since that time I have written and published ten novellas under two pen names. 

I tend to write dark, twisted love stories that most often have a happy ending. Not all of my stories will have that happy ending. 

 

Forever My Knight, my debut novella under this pen name, was published November 15, 2019. I haven't looked back since that day. I continue to write and make plans for future books. 

I enjoy listening to music when writing. If you'd like to know more, check out my playlists on YouTube. You'll see what inspires the dark, twisted tone of some of my books and get to listen to some awesome music at the same time.
