Born in the Midwest, I live in New York's scenic Hudson Valley Region with my husband and two sons. A huge reader since childhood, I penned my first full-length novel in high school on a typewriter in my parent's living room. That was when my dream of becoming a published author was born. Life happened, and it took a while, but I can honestly say: it's the best job ever.

If you're looking for puppies, rainbows, and sweet romance, you won't find that here. My stories tend to run dark, gritty, and adult, full of action, magic, intrigue, antiheroes, mysteries and monsters.

Here’s what I wished someone had said to me a long time ago:

•Write every day. Even if it’s only a paragraph and you throw it out tomorrow, just write. Flexing your creative muscle day in and day out makes a difference. It helps you find your voice.

•Share your stories. Find someone you can trust to give you an honest critique.

•Don’t isolate yourself. Connect with others like you; Twitter, Facebook, a writer’s group. Many aspiring authors are in the same boat and it’s no fun sitting in it alone.

•Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Leave your comfort zone. It’s nice and safe in there, but nothing will ever happen if you don’t step out.

•Believe in yourself. Don’t undervalue what you’re doing. If you write, you’re a writer.

You need to keep reading, as well. Don’t stick to the genre you write in, read across all genres. Get a feel for how a story goes together, for how other authors handle plot, scene structure, etc. It’s okay to emulate other authors at first. If you keep writing, your own style will emerge.

I’m also writing the first draft of the third book. I’m about ¾ of the way done, but I’ve recently put it aside so I can concentrate on getting Magic-Scars ready for its release. I'm finding ending a trilogy very different from starting one. It's actually kind of sad. I've lived with these characters for so long. I definitely plan on revisiting some of them down the road.

Cover Reveal

I'm so excited to share with you the cover of Slash & Burn, the 4th installment in the Nite Fire Series! The cover is a little different from the first three books but, since this one's a game-changer for Dahila and the gang, it's fitting. Check out the blurb below...



Surviving her ordeal on Drimera was only the beginning. Forced to pick up the remains of her life and move on, Dahlia returns to her

Wow. This one picks a punch for a short story. Interesting and provocative. Descriptive. I could hear the demon’s voice in my head and picture everything. Made me cringe a few times—which is a good sign!
