The author of more than a dozen books—my fiction spans the genres from thriller and psychological horror, to an occasional bloodbath, and the even rarer happy ending.

I was an editor and reviewer for over a decade, and have attended countless writing conventions, participated on dozens of panels, and spoken at the CIA Headquarters in Langley, VA regarding both my writing and the field in general. Born and raised in Wisconsin, she now lives in Destination, Pennsylvania.

"Wilted Lilies" part 1 is currently available through amazon and the magazine's website. The quarterly publishes September, December, March and June.

I am also in the paragraph phase (writing occasionally but concentrating on current work) of The Hatch, which is the sequel to Waiting Out Winter and will be done as soon as Wilted Lilies is wrapped. And I am in the note-taking phase of Floaters, my next full-on bloody horror (as opposed to my normally quiet horror that leans toward thriller). (less)
