PJ writes steamy, action-packed paranormal romance novels starring characters from both ends of the Kinsey scale and everything in between. She delves into themes like fate and overcoming the past. Her characters are strong, capable, and complex regardless of gender, and her worldbuilding is a little...intense.

When PJ isn't terrorizing the highways of Ohio in her red, mid-life crisis sports car or crunching numbers in Excel spreadsheets, she's writing or playing with her grandpuppies.

She is currently single and lives with her son and his two dogs, who all think they're the boss of her. They're probably right.

I left some unanswered (but not cliffhangery, I promise!) questions in book 1 - A Twist of Wyrd. How will things change for the Jotuns? What exactly happened in Trygg's past and is it going to stay there? And a few other things that would be spoilery to mention.

I set about answering all those things, but an odd thing happened. Two unexpected characters volunteered to tell the story...and I think I'm going to let them.

Writing. Never a dull moment.(less)

One of the characters, Valeria, died and came back as a Valkyrie to save Conan's life. It was the tiniest sip of Norse Mythology, but it was enough to fuel my curiosity. After that, I delved into several different mythologies--Greek, Roman, and Celtic. But something about Valkyries has always called to me.

When I decided to write a Paranormal Romance series, it was to Norse Mythology that I turned. The stories are rich, but not so well known that they're confining. I feel that most readers will be coming into my world with fewer preconceived notions, which gives me a little breathing room to change things up. And those readers who are familiar with Norse mythology will, I hope, see that while I'm twisting things a bit, I'm still doing my best to stay true to the myths.(less)

I'm such an Eden fan! Her characters are so real. There has been a single one of her books yet that I didn't care about the character from the very beginning. They're flawed and hurting and I want to see them happy, so I just keep turning the pages l ...more
