ABOUT ME: I write because it's hard-wired in me. I began scribbling stories at 5, typing them by eight, and finding publication for them beginning in my 20s.
I love the offbeat, the strange, and eerie stories best. I usually believe in writing "dark with heart," but now and then, the heart of horror beats...well, with fear and not much else. So, my novels may be quiet gothic, literary dark, or noisy, chaotic horror, and everything in between. I follow the scent of the story wherever it leads. I favor supernatural tales and what I term "perceptive supernatural."*
My whole life, I've been drawn to reading gothics, horror, supernatural, suspense, fantasy and pretty much anything that swept me off my feet, imagination-wise.
I live in New England in a place surrounded by sea, woods, and stone walls made of local granite, been married for 30 years (so far!), and generally am servant to a dog, cat, and many fish plus a few frogs in the backyard pond.
But additionally, I serve the story. I hope you enjoy what you find among my fiction.
Thank you for checking out my novels and stories.
* By perceptive supernatural or perceptive fantasy, I mean the perception of a particular character, which is that character's reality. None of us necessarily can prove we've ever experienced ghosts, but if we feel we have, in the story of our lives, we have. And this is how I see the people in my stories and books. These stories are their experiences.
