My story HOT DISH is in the TNT Horror Contest Top 10!
I am the author of Mostly Dead Melvin -- a contemporary fantasy laced with dark humor, and Marker of Faith -- a supernatural thriller, and five books of short stories: Liam Malone (a stand alone short story) , The Worm Lady (a stand alone short story), Tales of Shadow -- four short horror stories, Depravity Cavity: an omnibus of horror -- seven short stories, and DEADLINE: a collection of moments -- six short stories. Coming soon: Welcome to the Dreamtime -- eleven short stories.
I live in the Pacific Northwest and spend my days with a fabulous husband, two Norse gods disguised as my daughters, and a menagerie of used animals. At night I sneak out to my office on the back deck under an umbrella where I write feverishly on a battered Mac laptop, typing away madly until the sun rises. Dark, comic, creepy tales come to life as I sip cold coffee and chain smoke aromatic clove cigars in the crisp night air.
In a previous life I was a musician, a publican, a fortune teller, a chef, a burgeoning astrophysicist, and an artist rep.
Now a domestic goddess and a mother by day/ writer by night, I enjoy my alter ego as the smoking monkey who gets to use a laptop.
