I have a head full of nonsense...but it becomes sense when I write it down.


Background Information

I suppose generally we're suppossed to write these things in third person so it sounds like, perhaps, someone else wrote it and we, ourselves, are not patting ourselves on the back.  But I dislike coming of pretentious more than I do sounding vain, so we'll go ahead and do this in the first person.

I started writing when I was in my teens, but I was always a story teller.  I would lay awake and night-dream all sorts of fantastic little adventures for myself.  Eventually i realized that perhaps other people would like them too, that I could probably write (since I havn't been blessed with an enourmous amount of other skills...my memory is shot, and don't even think to ask me to add without a calculator...) them down fairly well.  I was right...people like my written down tales, and I am told that i'm a really good writer.  I better be.  it's about the only thing I'm good for.  Well, I'm a pretty good secretary, too.  And hopefully you realize that while i'm taking the idea of introducing myself to you seriously, I'm also being a tad silly.  :)   

My influences include Neil Gaiman, Barbara Hambly, Terry Pratchett, Laura Kinsale, Sue Grafton, Tony Hillerman, Agatha Christie, Shakespeare (no, I'm not being pretentious, he puts words together so pretty!), Jennifer Roberson, Chuck Palanuick,  Charles de Lint, and really everyone I've ever read because you learn from everything. 

Birth Place
Monogahela, PA USA
Additional Information

Blue Moon, published by Zumaya Otherworlds, is my latest book, but I have two short stories out with Drollerie Publications. They are re-told fairy tales, available in a variety of eBook formats, and act as a good "taster' to see if you might like my writing. (Of course, I also have excerpts of Blue Moon online.) Also, I have two more books coming out soon! The Chocolatier's Wife will be coming out as an EBook soon, followed by paperback publication in the late fall. There will also be an anthology of my stories.

A Pen and Fire
This is my...well, it's supposed to be my professional website, but sometimes I tend to blather on a bit in my blog. There is a lot of information...author interviews, facts about my books, how my projects are going, what I've learned, general silliness.
