About this author

Born and grew up in Texas, have lived in Sheridan, Wyo., for 20-plus years. After playing Winter Texan down in Rockport (where I used to live) for a while, I am now a full-time Sheridanite. I am companion to three dogs, and slave to one cat.
Spent most of my life writing for newspapers, but in 2006 decided it was time to write the fantasy/detective novels that were nagging at me. Shadow Path was the first, followed by Stormcaller, Deathtalker and Sister Hoods. More books are in the works.
I love series books, because I hate to give up characters that have become old friends.

Don't wait for "the Muse" to knock on the door. Think about the kind of book you want to write - and what kinds of books you like to read. That's your starting point if you don't already have an idea firm in your mind. Grab an image to get your brain engaged, then start writing. Books are a lot like life. They're about cause and effect, action/reaction. Something happens. How do your characters respond to the event? That's your plot - or the start of one. Equally important - Have faith in yourself!(less)
