Background Information

An award-winning and bestselling SynergEbooks author, paranormal investigator, world traveler, former Hollywood stand-in/photo double/dancer, wife and chocoholic.

After spending most of my life in the entertainment industry (you can catch me in various episodes of Rags to Riches and some very bad movies and cable shows that shall remain unnamed), I decided to make a career change and go back to school for a writing degree. I studied with Nebula Award winner and science fiction author Sheila Finch and received my creative writing degree from California State University, Long Beach.

When I was a kid, I had a hard time finding sci-fi and fantasy books that featured females. Most of them were about men and boys having adventures, and if a girl appeared in the book, she was somebody's sister, teacher, mother or secretary who rarely got more than a few lines. Today, I write what I enjoy reading, so readers will find women and/or girls featured in every one of my novels.

I'm also a ghost buster. Yep, you read that right. I belong to a paranormal investigative team that hunts for ghosts and other out of the ordinary occurrences. I've also had people tell me how impressed they are with my stint as a Disneyland performer back in the '80s, so I decided to share that little tidbit here.

I'm very much into genealogy. Barack Obama is my 7th cousin once removed. Yeah, we're tight. I have a Mohawk Indian grandmother in my way back ancestry. Daniel Boone is my way back uncle. And I have a bunch of Irish, British, Scottish, Welsh, German and Dutch folks in my lineage.

In March of 2003, after bouts of vertigo, tinnitus and other symptoms that left me exhausted, occasionally in tears and generally stressed out, I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease. The diagnosis was a relief, since I found out I wasn't dying, but at the same time I went through the old "why me?" scenario and had myself a nice pity party. After the foot stomping, pouting and bouts of whining (yes, I'm still married), I focused even more on my writing. The tragic death of my seventeen-year-old nephew in 2008 lit another fire under me, and I'm more compelled than ever to get my books out to readers, where they can be enjoyed.

I currently live in the Arizona desert with my husband and our insane birds, where I'm working on another novel.
