Have you ever dreamed of places you wanted to see? Of course, everyone does. That's what I did as a kid. I dreamed of everywhere. I wanted to travel to beautiful, exotic, exciting places and leave my boring home town behind. My adventures took on the forms of dreams, and stories in my head. I would wake up in the morning thinking what the heck am I doing in this blue room with sexy men all over the walls? Wasn't I just swinging through the jungle trees with a hot guy in a loincloth? Oh, right. I'm back in my bedroom. (Enter frowny face here.)
I worked in the library when I was in high school to absorb anything and everything. I really loved that job. Okay, it got me out of study hall, but so what.
Paranormal drew me. I read up on all aspects of the paranormal written, and allowed in high schools back then. I lived in the paranormal world, and still do today, which is why I feel comfortable writing in that genre. I was reading about vampires, and werewolves, and ghosts back in the day (my daughter hates it when I say that), but the vampires and werewolves I read about back then were certainly not the sexy, go ahead and bite me baby, ones that we have in YA and adult fiction these days. Thank you progress.
Many years and two kids later, I'm back to dreaming of beautiful, exotic, and exciting places, and men who are heroic in their own way. Are they still sexy, you say? Damn straight. Gorgeous, sexy, hot, there are an endless amount of adjectives to describe the men I write (and read, definitely), but they are also flawed. They are human after all, well, except for the Time Walkers. They are just down right slap my fanny, gods.
The one theme that runs through all my stories is TIME. ~~Love Spans All Time~~ That's right, I said it. I truly believe it too. Borrowing a quote from a damn good movie here: 'It is said some lives are linked across time, connected by an ancient calling that echoes through the ages' (Prince of Persia).
I am currently penning Book 2 in 'The Talisman Trilogy,' and very excited to be back in the Highlands. I invite you to take a peek at my Books page. Maybe you'll find something that catches your eye.
