I'm a shy thing who hates attention, but if you never step out of your comfort zone, fear will tighten its stranglehold on you. 😰I've been sharing my work on Wattpad since 2014, so here are a few of my accomplishments.

'MOTHER' - Top 35 finalist in #TNTHorrorContest
'LADY IN RED' - Top five in @RomanceSparks #HauntedRomance contest
'DEVIL'S LAKE' - Highest Ranking # 3 in Paranormal March 2016, 3rd place winner in @The_Night_Shift 's Killer First Scene contest

👉DEVIL'S LAKE is now available in paperback.

I ❤️ the strange, mysterious, and paranormal. Allowing characters to be drawn in and to discover something new and unexpected is exciting for me. But I'm also into anything that is well written and engaging.

Religious/spiritual themes tend to find their way into my fiction. Authors who've influenced my writing the most include Flannery O'Connor, JK Rowling, Sharon Shinn, LJ Smith, and CS Lewis.

Now, I will proceed to overanalyze whether this entire "about me" shares too much, too little, is too choppy, and any other flaws I can possibly find in it. 😅 Did I mention that the theme of anxiety shows up in my work a lot?
