Mystery, Romantic Suspense, Legends, Folklore
Quirky fact I don’t want anyone to know:
My favorite color changes depending upon my mood. Sometimes it’s red, other times green, but most of the time I prefer blue.
Bio: I’ve always enjoyed a good story. Some of my earliest memories are the times when I listened to my mother tell a story about her or her family. Those that involved mystery or suspense fascinated me most. I would think about the “what ifs” and was intrigued by inexplicable happenings.
I became an avid reader and this developed into a desire to write. At the age of ten, I began to scribble short stories. I dabbled in poetry in my early teens, and at age seventeen, I wrote a short YA novel by hand but set aside my desire to write for too many years.
I’m not superstitious. I’ll walk under ladders and purposely cross a black cat’s path (in fact, several black cats have found their way to our home). However, I am interested in the folklore and legends behind the superstition.
When I’m not at my computer, I like to take nature walks, observe the night skies, and explore old cemeteries. I also love ghost walks and learning about local folklore. I live in Texas with my husband and cats. You can learn more about me by visiting me at my website.
