About this author

I live on a small farm in rural Ohio with my husband, two children, a cat, a goldfish, and a black lab who will eat anything, including walls and ductwork.

Over the course of my life, I've worn many hats, including: retail clerk, elementary school teacher, registered rep in insurance and finance.

My reading tastes are eclectic, but when I write my own stories they usually contain a touch of fantasy, science fiction, and/or the paranormal.

Thank you for stopping by. Feel free to drop me a note.
