I started writing years ago, and my first attempt was a contemporary romance that will never see the light of day. I think I may even have thrown it away by now. It was absolutely horrific as I knew nothing about well...anything to do with writing.

After that, I started writing fantasy romances about wizards and wizards, and once those took off, I segued to paranormal romances (hello, vampires and ghosts). Now I focus on romantic suspense and young adult. I also write articles for various magazines, including The Writer's Journal, Writer's Magazine, Writer's Weekly, Writing for Dollars, Absolute Write, and Funds for Writers.

I'm fortunate to make my home in historical Charleston, South Carolina. Beautiful city. Beautiful people. When I'm not writing, I love to read paranormal romance, romantic suspense, young adult fantasy and paranormal, create videos, shop, craft with clay pots, cook, and drink lots of coffee.
