About

Welcome! If you’re here on my website, that means you’re interested in my writing and there’s no better compliment to a writer than that! So thanks for being here!

I consider myself a dark speculative fiction writer as “speculative” covers a broad range of genres and I don’t like to pigeonhole my writing. Horror, Fantasy, Sci-Fi… I like to write it all. What I do tend to stick closely to, however, is that element of “dark” in my writing. I’m a lover of all things dark and spooky and I tend to want to write that way, as well.

Growing up, my favorite author and writing inspiration was Stephen King. Still is. I own nearly every one of his books, some titles in multiple copies. He truly sparked that inner darkness in me that has been bleeding onto the page ever since.

Besides writing short stories, I have a couple of novels rolling around in my head (with many, many chapters and complete outlines written out) that I hope one day to have published. I love writing short stories, but it’d be a dream come true to have a full novel of my very own published and in my hands.

Besides writing, I also regularly edit for Fantasia Divinity Magazine, which has been truly incredible. I’ve gotten to work with so many talented authors from all around the world and I know my own writing has improved immensely because of it.

I love to create; whether it’s through my writing, scrapbooking, picture taking, or even designing the children’s board game I’ve had in the works for some time now. My mind is always coming up with new ideas for something. Sometimes, it’s hard to shut it off at night so I can get some sleep! I honestly don’t know what I’d do without coffee. (Does anyone?)

I’m a mom from Northern Kentucky, and my two little boys who really are the loves of my life. Being a “writer mom” is not always easy as it can be hard to find the time to actually sit down and truly hone my craft, but being a mom is the best thing I am and will always take precedence over everything else. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

When I’m not mom-ing or writing, I’m usually either reading, daydreaming, or watching reality TV (my biggest guilty pleasure.)

You can find my fiction on Amazon or by going to my Amazon Author Page HERE. I also have a page over at Goodreads HERE. You can also head over to my “Published” page that has a complete listing of my published stories, along with links to find them.

Thanks for stopping by!
