A dreamer, a cynic, a klutz who loves cats, a homebody who roams, an artist, a writer. Strong coffee is the elixir that keeps the dragon at bay. My basement is full of them.

I started writing historical fiction when I was 14, but that slowly gravitated toward the fantastical. My epic fantasy series, The Falcons Saga, is available at Amazon.

Swans of Westermere (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Jun 10, 2015 09:04AM
Description: When young Joss Tanner moves with her mother and sister into their ancestral home, she overhears terrifying rumors of dark family secrets: debutantes flung from balconies, drownings, and the devil himself locked in a box on the mantelpiece. “Curiosity killed the cat,” Joss replied. “Everybody knows that.” “Oh, no, child,” said Gramma Johns. “It was the swan.” But what inquisitive girl can ignore poking around Westermere’s dusty cupboards, its hidden attics? Joss’s investigations soon unearth clues about crimes a century old — and a curse captured on a tintype. Can Joss convince her mother and sister to leave Westermere before family history repeats itself?
"Mists of Blackfen Bog" - Sample (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: In this tale of lost faith and redemption, an outbreak of restless spirits threatens the safety of the bog-dwellers. Imaen, a disillusioned, bitter priestess, is forced to accompany her mentor into the icy swamps to learn why the spirits walk and to help put them to rest again. But when her mentor is attacked and slain by one of these spirits, Imaen must find the courage and the faith she needs to solve the mystery on her own. If she fails, the evil behind the outbreak could claim her soul as well, leaving her a forlorn spirit wandering through the mists of Blackfen Bog. First published in Silver Blade, Journal of Fantasy Fiction, 2009

Court Ellyn liked a quote

“Paris is the city in which one loves to live. Sometimes I think this is because it is the only city in the world where you can step out of a railway station—the Gare D'Orsay—and see, simultaneously, the chief enchantments: the Seine with its bridges and bookstalls, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Tuileries Gardens, the Place de la Concorde, the beginning of the Champs Elysees—nearly everything except the Luxembourg Gardens and the Palais Royal. But what other city offers as much as you leave a train?”
Margaret Anderson

Wormwood by Marie Corelli
“Let me be mad, then, by all means! mad with the madness of Absinthe, the wildest, most luxurious madness in the world! Vive la folie! Vive l'amour! Vive l'animalisme! Vive le Diable!”
