Maybe it’s because of my Halloween birthday, but I’ve always been attracted to scary stories. Supernatural thrillers and paranormal suspense have always been at the top of my reading list! Like my favorite chocolate, my books are both dark and sweet.

I’ve been writing since childhood, but earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology and my master’s in English literature. When I’m not writing, I teach English at a two-year college. I’ve been married to Mr. Right for over thirty years. I also have three children: a boy and two girls, all of whom have threatened to never speak to me again if I turn them into characters and put them into my books.

Broken Spirits Playlist

[image error]Big news! The latest installment in the Restless Spirits series, Broken Spirits, will soon be released. It’s been a fun, but long, project and I’m very excited to soon be launching a new book.


Which brings me to today’s post.
