I am a 41-year-old mother of 2 boys. They are my heart and soul! One is 16 and one is 12. (Fun fact my oldest is an amazing writer although he does not wish to be a writer. His dream is to be a Video Game Designer/Artist. My youngest wants to save the endangered turtles of the world.)
I studied English Literature (British and American Lit, Comparative Lit, and Creative Writing with minors in Russian Lit, French Lit, South American/Mexican Lit, Criminal Justice, and Pre-Law) and Marketing (with focus on Integrated Marketing with a minor in Accounting).
I have been a working and published writer for 17 years using several Pseudonyms in different genres. I have also worked for around 7 years as an editor.
I have worked using my creative vision on everything from writing poetry to creative direction on fashion shoots. Everything has a story and literature can be used to create beautiful scenes in fashion spreads. My dream was always to grow up and be a writer like Henry David Thoreau (Edgar Allan Poe, Dashiell Hammett, Byron, Keats, Emily Dickenson, and Agatha Christie were inspirations in my early works.) I began writing poetry as soon as I could write and have close to 1900 poems in my collection. I began short stories around the age of 10 and started and finished my first Detective (Mystery) novel at the age of 13. At the age of 15 I wrote my first play in English and one in Spanish, I wrote a play in French at 17. After college I worked a day job of Grant & Under Writing, writing articles for mag. and newspapers while writing my 1st published novel.
While I am still a full-time writer. I enjoy helping other writers using my knowledge of everything from editing to marketing to help them with their writing.
I was born in Las Vegas, NV (USA) on Nov 6. I am the 3rd born child of 4 to my parents. My sis-in-law is also a writer/editor and my sis is a writer. I am of French, Welsh/Canadian, Cherokee, and Celtic/Irish descent.
And yes, I am a vocal reader!
