a brand-new GraveTells contributor, and looking forward to being a part of such a fantastic team and getting to know everyone here. I write steamy Paranormal Romance novels and short stories – nothing published yet, but hopefully soon. The series I’m working on now is all about my own little twist on vampires, and their ancient enemies, the weredragons. The fragile peace between them is threatened every time a weredragon and vampire fall in love. Then, there’s the group of humans bent on exterminating both races.

When that wasn’t enough, my mother signed for me to able to get books from the adult section at the public library, rather than being confined to the youth and juvenile sections.
I started reading Paranormal Romances when they were still few and far between. That someone combined paranormal and occult elements with romance amazed me, and made complete sense at the same time. As the genre became more popular, I became addicted, and read every title I could get my hands on. It wasn’t long before I was waiting in line on release day to buy new titles in my favorite series.
I wrote the stories I made up even before I could read, dictating them to my mother, and filling line after line, page after page, in her letter-writing tablet with tiny scribbles – my version of cursive writing. I’ve been a writer ever since, though fiction took a backseat to non-fiction for work until a couple years ago. When I decided to focus on writing fiction, with publication as the goal, it seemed only natural that I would write Paranormal Romance.
When I’m not writing or reading, or working on a related project, I’m usually spending time with family. I also create original acrylic paintings whenever time allows, which isn’t as often as I’d like these days. My other interests include cooking, sewing, gardening, crafts, hiking, camping, and horses.
write steamy paranormal romance novels featuring weredragons and daywalking vampires. I live in rural eastern Kentucky with my husband of 25 years, our 5 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 snakes. We have one daughter, and three adorable little grandsons. The first novel in my BLOOD DRAGONS series is on submission with several publishers, and I’m working on the second one.
