Maybe it’s because of my Halloween birthday, but I’ve always been attracted to scary stories. On the other hand, I love romances as well. Once I discovered that these two genres existed side-by-side in urban fantasy novels, I was in heaven! Urban fantasy is like chocolate and peanut butter: a perfect, to-die-for combination that I can never get enough of.

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’m a straight-laced English teacher at a two-year college in Detroit. I’ve been married to Mr. Right for over twenty-five years. I also have three teenaged children: a boy and two girls, all of whom have threatened to never speak to me again if I turn

maxresdefaultLately, I’ve been obsessed with hand-written signs and calligraphy. I practice handwriting every night with my pens and pencil. As a writer, I’m usually more interested in words and phrases than in the actual letters. Paying close attention to the letters of the alphabet is a new experience, and it’s given me a new appreciation for fonts and typography. Now, I’m noticing signs and type everywhe...

It's difficult to write something new about a book as critically acclaimed as Art Spiegelman's "Maus" graphic novel. I can only say that, if you haven't read it, you should. Yes, it's an amazing story of Holocaust survival, but what I hadn't counted ...more

Topics Mentioning This Author

Art Spiegelman
“I'm not talking about YOUR book now, but look at how many books have already been written about the Holocaust. What's the point? People haven't changed... Maybe they need a newer, bigger Holocaust.”
Art Spiegelman

Samuel Beckett
“We are all born mad. Some remain so.”
Samuel Beckett

Henry James
“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”
Henry James

C.S. Lewis
“I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern."

[From the Preface]
C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

Chinua Achebe
“While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary.”
Chinua Achebe, Anthills of the Savannah
