I'm one of those authors who will say that I never dreamed of becoming a professional writer. I always loved school and I did the post-secondary option my jr. year of high school to receive college credits. While I was at OUE, I had several professors tell me I had a gift for writing. Wanting to test that, I wrote an article for the American Cancer Society on my struggle with brain cancer and was awarded a scholarship, reinforcing my love for writing. I always knew that my passion was writing, but I didn't pursue it as a career until after raising my family. I studied at Ohio University Eastern for a little while, but it wasn't until many years later that I started my first novel. I became a stay-at-home mom and studied at other academic institutions, writing a few other short stories, but the idea for my first novel came when my husband kept me up in the night from his snoring and I couldn't sleep. That's how I started The Slayer. Several drafts later, I had a full-length novel. After working as an Independent author and writing my first two novels, I signed on with Static Pen Publishing who have signed The Slayer. I'm currently working on several other novels, including the sequel to the Slayer.
I'm married to my high-school sweetheart, surviving the up and down weather of rural Ohio together with our four children. I absolutely adore being a writer and wouldn't dream of any other life (except mom life, of course!). But don't ask me where I get the ideas for my books, because my answer will always be that I have no idea and I truly don't. Most of my inspiration comes from long walks, almond milk lattes, and perusing old cemeteries for the coolest retired names for characters I can find.
