I’m drawn to words. The way they
look. The way they sound. They absolutely fascinate me. I’m the
type of child who could sit down with an encyclopedia and be a happy
camper. Or go through the dictionary and highlight every word remotely
pertaining to mythology.
I’ve always wanted to write. But when I was younger, I would wait until the urge was almost unbearable. Then the words would spill onto the page, and it would be like releasing a pressure valve. Until the next time.
I’m a single parent of three beautiful
teenage girls. I work full-time besides the writing. Time is at a premium
in my little world. So I finally decided to chunk the “all or
nothing” approach about four years ago and settle into my head
with the goal of finishing a book.
So I tucked that little gem away and
started another. The second book I wrote was Perfect Timing. A Time
Travel Romance set in my great state of Oklahoma. What happens when
a man from the future falls in love with a woman from the past and can’t
Not only did the words come, they sometimes
came so fast that I couldn’t type quickly enough. And then I had
an idea for another story. (This is one sentence that pops up in my
vocabulary ALL the time).
I love Paranormal Romance. I can push
the boundaries even farther. The Portrait, my first Paranormal Romance,
received four and a half stars from Romantic Times Magazine. And isn’t
that a lovely thing to behold? But I always find myself pushing to create
works that haven’t been done to death. To put my little fingerprints
all over new ideas and shape them into my own.
I find that I write what interests me. I grew up on Fairy Tales. We didn’t have a lot of money, but I would find a hardback book of Fairy Tales under the Christmas Tree every year. I read Anderson, Grimm, and the classics. They absolutely enchant me to this day. So I decided to create a story that dips into that world. One Enchanted Evening will be out February next year. What does a cynical girl do when the prince of a fairy tale kingdom needs her help? Ivy tries to ignore it all. But with a gnome and fairy inhabiting her workspace, she quickly changes her mind.
Writing to me is like breathing. It’s an outlet that I need and crave. I’ve jotted down notes on the back of a receipt with only five words and created a full-length novel. I don’t plot, per se. It makes my eye twitch to think of it. All my stories are character driven. Let’s throw two people in an interesting situation and watch them work it out. I’m shameless like that.
So to sum it up…I’m a thirtysomething
woman with three beautiful daughters living my dream. Writing the books
that interest me. Telling the stories that come from my heart. And totally
unrepentant while doing it.
