D.L. Finn is an independent California local who encourages everyone to embrace their inner child. She was born and raised in the foggy Bay Area, but in 1990 relocated with her husband, kids, dogs, and cats to the Sierra foothills in Nevada City, CA. She immersed herself in reading all types of books, but especially loved romance, horror, and fantasy. She always treasured creating her own reality on paper. Finally, being surrounded by towering pines, oaks, and cedars, her creativity was nurtured until it bloomed. Her creations vary from children’s books, young adult fantasy, and adult paranormal romance to an autobiography with poetry. She continues on her adventures with an open invitation for her readers to join her.You can learn more abo ...more

It has a few twists they won't recognize...lol. This book is in the editing phase. I am, also, putting together a book that includes my poetry, my photography and a more personal story based some things I went through called: "No Fairytale--A Realty of a girl who wasn't a Princess and her poetry". I have been spending some time putting my "old" work on my laptop in between. I will be focusing on both children and adults. Looking at 2016 for releases for both and more to come!(less)
