About the Author:
My first story was called The Curse of the White Witch, written when I was in third grade. It was a thriller about a kind girl with supernatural powers, who was misunderstood and treated badly by the townspeople. It's odd, as it has some similarities to my paranormal thriller Dark Before Dawn, coming out from Mainly Murder Press in early 2012, but I didn't realize the similarities until recently.
Do you use paper and pen, old-fashioned typewriter, or computer/laptop? Is there a specific place that you like to write?
I use the desktop computer in my office for writing. I have a laptop and an Alphasmart word processor, but I'm most productive on the computer in my office. I always do my editing with a pen, highlighters and printed manuscript. Somehow, it's easier for me to find flaws in the manuscript when it's printed out in manuscript form.
What is the best part of writing for you?
The best part is seeing how the story unfolds, and reading a scene over and thinking, Wow, that's pretty good. It's also rewarding when I run into some kind of story problem and then figure out a way to resolve it.
Tell us something about your books.
I mostly write adult mystery novels with a touch of romance, but I've also written young adult novels and children's picture books. Readers of Twenty-Five Years Ago Today should also enjoy Sink or Swim, which is about a former reality show contestant who attracts a stalker after returning to her normal life as a personal trainer.
My young adult paranormal thriller Dark Before Dawn is scheduled for release in early 2012, and is about teenage psychics and their mysterious fortuneteller mentor. It's a young adult book, but adults who enjoy paranormal books should enjoy it also.
My children's picture book The Flag Keeper teaches kids about U.S. flag etiquette through a fiction story, discussion questions, flag facts, and cute teddy bear illustrations. I also have another children's picture book called Victoria Rose and the Big Bad Noise, and a third on the way, titled Sticker Shoes. Lastly, I'm working on the re-release of my out-of-print young adult novel Face-Off, about feuding twin brothers who compete on the same high school ice hockey team. I'm also working on the sequel, Offsides. At least one of the Face-Off books should be out this fall.
What is something that most people wouldn't necessarily know about you (that you would be willing to share here, of course!)?
I'm very holistic and spiritual. I'm trained as a Reiki master, though I don't do it professionally. Reiki is a form of hands-on energy healing.
