Born to rolling-stone parents who moved annually, my earliest playmates were fictional friends in books. Paperbacks became my portable pals. Novels offered an imaginative escape. An only child, I began writing my first novel at the age of nine, learning the joys of creating my own happy endings.
Ghost stories keep me up at night—reading feverishly. The paranormal is my passion.
I write multicultural, suspense stories steeped in the supernatural with a smack of offbeat romance--the types of books I want to read with spooky elements
that make my neck hairs tingle.
"True love is like a ghost.
Many believe in it, but few encounter it."
IMHO, the only thing better than reading
a book is writing one ;)
