About this author

As a quirky librarian I love bringing to my books a look into another world with a little humor and a story to keep pages turning. My new series "The Shapeshifters' Library" features a library full of librarians and dog-shifters trying to stay one step ahead of the book-burning werewolves.
Book One "Released," Book Two "Retrieved," and "Recovered" Book Three.

I'm also really good at relaxing people, so my latest book Contains all the tips a librarian/yoga teacher wants writers and readers to know. I wrote "Relaxing the Writer" to help everyone to sits to read and writes and recorded my relaxation CDs "Relaxing the Writer Relaxation" to offer a way to learn to release stress!

I've written 2 romance novels, one with a paranormal twist a "Romanci...more

There is only one person in the world, aside from your dog, who has any hope of liking you regardless of your success or failure. That's you. I think it's worth a little of your time to get to know that person better.H.L. Stephens

How I envy those clerks who go by to their offices in the morning! There's the day's work cut out for them; no question of mood and feeling; they have just to work at something, and when the evening comes, they have earned their wages, and they are free to rest and enjoy themselves. What an insane thing it is to make literature one's only means of support! When the most trivial accident may at any time prove fatal to one's power of work for weeks or months. No, that is the unpardonable sin! To make a trade of an art! I am rightly served for attempting such a brutal folly.George Gissing
