Oftentimes, I stray beyond the lines of genres and paste several together to create a work of fiction that encapsulates a variety of elements. Romance and the human condition are the overarching forces when I write. Depending on my muse, the main genre ranges anywhere from earthly action/sci-fi to paranormal to urban fantasy. Always laden with a hefty dose of dark undertones.
When I read a new book, whether it's an earthly science fiction (Dean Koontz is the sh*t) a suspense, a romcom, or a really well done paranormal romance (hats off to J.R. Ward, Nalini Singh, Christine Feehan, and Patricia Briggs), I want the words to leap from the page and slam headfirst into my cranium sensors. I want to be whisked away on an adventure, to be pulled into a story so completely my coffee gets cold, or my wine glass is empty.
My desire when writing a book is to give my reader that 'unputdownable' read. To make them laugh, cry, and turn the page until they skid to the end, left wanting more. Isn't that what we all want when we open that first page, prop up our legs and start reading?
I live in Northern Nevada with my family. Big mooches to my furry feline sidekick, Leonidas, who sees to it that I am properly entertained when at my desk.
In my free time, I spend as much time beside, or on, the cool blue waters of Northern California lakes as I can.
