About this author

I’d love to say I’m able to write full time. Unfortunately I have a real life that demands attention worse than my kids when they were toddlers. Fortunately, I love my day job too, as executive assistant to a vice chancellor at my alma mater – little did they know they’d never get rid of me.

Ever since I learned to read—from Superman Comics, Dick, Jane and Sally held no appeal—I've wanted to write. I finally got up the courage and I’m delighted that I finally get to share it with you.

I write science fiction, paranormal usually with an eco-twist, and small town romance - who knew?

My books include Rth Rising, Learning Trust, Homecoming, Wraith's Heart, and novellas are Red Shoes, Nowhere for Christmas and Dance Partner.

I’m a member of Romance...more


Influences, me? Okay, yeah. I’ve probably already mentioned X-Files along the way here but it was a huge influence on my writing (and dreams and muse). A smart science fiction story that didn’t need humor to offset it. A wish come true!

Well, I didn't realize it was a novella. Much too short. I need a lot more about Mathias and Nova. I'm considering this a teaser and I want Lara to revisit this couple and fill in a lot of blanks. We all know she can do it! Good, quick read.
