I live in the quiet, middle-of-nowhere Everett, Pennsylvania with my three boys.

I've been writing since I was eleven, after I swiped one of my mom's Dean Koontz books. I still remember the first one I read; it was called Darkfall, and kept me awake most of the night.

Unfortunately, that is not going to happen because, fortunately, shortly after the release of Sacrificed I discovered I was pregnant with twins!

I'm on a sort of maternity leave for the time being, but plan to dive right back into Salvaged Soul once I start getting some sleep. :) I'll keep updates on my facebook page and website (www.desnidantone.com) (less)
