Penelope Anne started writing as soon as she could hold a pencil correctly, and learned that crayons were not for eating. From haiku to essays, it wasn't long before writing was on equal footing with her reading. From a fascination with everything from serial killers to historical romance, her writing is as eclectic as her.
Wisconsin is where she calls home. She shares life, with her soul-mate and her daughter. She also has two grown sons, she is very proud to call family.
Previously published online and in a variety of magazines with her nonfiction articles on parenting and home education, "A Paranormal Anthology with a TWIST" marks her first foray into fiction. She plans to make many more.

A fine story, but not spectacular in any one genre. Not really horror, not really suspense. Actually not really a story of King's caliber. A complete story, but simplistic.
