Welcome to my writing world

My passion is writing. When I am not writing, I am reading or watching sunsets. I have been writing short stories since I was in elementary school. Most were in the form of essays relating real-life events. Many were purely imaginary trips to magical places and times. I enjoy making up stories about people I meet or see on the street. My imagination runs wild and free. Besides my twenty novels and one companion short story, I have self-published a book of children’s stories I used to tell to my granddaughter, Brittney, and two books of supernatural short stories.

I have been reading and loving supernatural stories and mysteries since I picked up my first Nancy Drew book. I also read all the Hardy Boy books I could find. I am a fan of Stephen King, Wendy Corsi Staub, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Agatha Christie. Poe and H.P Lovecraft are also two of my favorite writers. I also have a romantic side that is drawn to the mail-order bride stories of the 1800s.

I write fiction and supernatural mystery and Western Historical romance are my genres of choice. I have read that reality plays a part in fiction and in the Gypsy Spirits trilogy that is true. I have used actual names of relatives and my ancestors did own a traveling carnival. If they were Gypsies, I have no idea. 95% of the books are pure fiction and I can thank my muse for the ideas. She is sitting at the top of my laptop now smiling. I think she has ideas brewing.

I love spring, summer, and starlight, but ice and snow make my dislike list. I have two children and two grandchildren who are the joys of my life. I hope you enjoy your visit to my website.

Thanks and Blessings,
