I love stories.

I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.

And I write them.

I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.

I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.

In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.

My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)

Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.


Music, poetry, and prose

I’m not trying to brag (not much, anyway), but my writing has been described as ‘poetic’ or ‘elegant’ and so on. This isn’t because I’m unusually talented. I believe it’s because I grew up with music. Classical, blues, even some rock. I also grew up with poetry, both spoken and on the written page.

So I appreciate the music and rhythm of poetry wherever I find it, even in a mystery, a romance, or a nonfiction piece about anything you can think of. The lilt of phrases, the music of words, the clear and concise way meaning and words flow together.

I hope when you read my latest work-in-progress, The Healer, the third and last of the Wilderness Women series, you will find that it flows naturally, rhythmically, and musically, telling a tale while also showing by word and phrase what it’s like to live in the forest.

And I know that I’m not the only person on the planet who loves poetry wherever she finds it.
