Thank you for visiting my author page!

Here you will find information about everything I have in publication and what I'm working on now. My genres include Young Adult Paranormal Fiction, Adult Paranormal Fiction and Romance.

Because I can't resist, I will also try to frequently blog a favorite quote from one of the many, many books I've read. Some days they'll be funny, others, hopefully, thought provoking.

Below are links to the first chapters of each of my books in publication.

Men really do need sea-monsters in their personal oceans ~ John Steinbeck

“Make it quick," I said when I picked up. 

"Okay. Two men from the FBI are here." Cookie said. Quickly. 

Crap. "Men in black are at the office?"

"Well, yes, but they're actually in more of a navy."

Crapola. I so don't have time for men. In any color. "Okay, two questions. Do they look mad, and are they hot?"

After a long, long, pause, Cookie said, "One, not really. Two, no comment at this time. And three, you're on speakerphone."

After another long, long pause, I said, "Okie dokie then. Be there in a jiff.”

Check out the new cover for Sanctuary!

October 18, 2016

Are you ready to name a brand new character? She is the main female character of my new series. The first book is called Sanctuary and it is set in a world thrust into perpetual winter. There are humans and aliens in the story (yes, I'm going there lol). I have used the working name Jade until you come up with a better name. The book will be ready for publication as soon as her name is changed, so it's time to get going! For the next two days (until 11:59pm October 20, 2016), I will accept suggestions. I will then narrow it down to the top three that I love and will let you all vote on your favorite. Can't wait to read your suggestions on my facebook page!!!!
