I live in North Carolina with my kid, husband, the occasional in-law, and a very hairy husky named Bonnie. Some of my favorite things are coffee, chocolate, and super heroes. I can quote Princess Bride verbatim. I love to read and have a sweet tooth for fantasy, sci-fi, and anything in between. Sometimes my husband convinces me to put down the books and take the motorcycles out for a spin. When it snows, you'll find me on the slopes.

My first novel, Midnight Burning, was published by Red Adept Publishing in July of 2015. The second book in the series, Arctic Dawn, is now available. Book 3, Molten Dusk, will be released in 2017.

The first of my new YA series, The Norse Chronicles, is available now, as well. Check out Heir of Thunder at your favorite online retailer.

I have many more books, short stories, and novella's under my cap and hope to post them here, soon.
