Forced at the age of 10 to read a Nancy Drew book, I became a lifelong book lover that day. Before that, I hated reading. Since then, I have read countless books, primarily mysteries, and have a very healthy, and maybe slightly unwieldy personal library.
I began writing around the age of 14 when I decided that the distributors of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys novels weren’t putting them out fast enough. Initially, I wanted to try ghostwriting for those series, but eventually shifted into creating my own books. Since then, I’ve written several unpublished novels that have all helped me become a more skilled writer–and will never see the light of day.
In college, I obtained a Journalism degree, but because of my political views, decided that the press was probably not the best place for me. I was married for seventeen years right out of college. I’m the mom to a daughter, a son, and a rambunctious black Lab mix and three morally-superior cats.
I currently write mysteries, science fiction, urban fantasy, and romance, though I hope to write a political thriller in the vein of Vince Flynn eventually. When I’m not writing, reading, drinking copious amounts of coffee with white chocolate raspberry creamer, or tending to my family, I’m most likely watching Star Wars, Avengers movies, or The Orville, baking, or hiking. My family and I reside in Kansas, of which, I’m a lifelong resident—and proud of it.
