About this author

I picked up my first Harlequin presents at age 11 and proceeded to voraciously read every kind of Romance under the sun, but fell in love with the wild side, Scence Fiction Romance, Paranormal Romance, and Fantasy Romance.
After getting my degree in English as a Writing Art at SUNY Oswego and a Masters in Library Science at the University of Buffalo, I worked as a school librarian for five years in Webster, NY, before chasing my dream of publication.
I live with my family and two dogs( a basenji and a vizsla) in Columbus, Ohio.

It's the third book in the Chimera Chronicles and is tentatively slated to release this winter, Dec/Jan 2014-2015.
Why am I so excited? It takes place during a bank robbery. I am addicted to bank robbery shows and movies (it's weird because I am compulsively law-abiding) and my hero has been blackmailed into robbing a bank with his twin brother. The heroine is an FBI agent, so conflict, conflict, conflict, but the mating bond is stronger than than the law. It's a tricky write because it takes place in such a compressed period of time and a lot has to happen, including bringing in the hero's younger brothers (who he doesn't know exist) from Book 1 and 2.:-)(less)

Things distracting me this week–

Congratulations, Ohio State Buckeyes on winning a true National Championship!

I’m not really a football fan, but the Buckeyes are special to me for more than just geographical reasons (I live in a suburb of Columbus).

The last time the Buckeyes won a National Championship was the 2002 season. I remember it very well, because I was in the hospi... Read more of this blog post »
