Multi-award-winning author, geek, genealogy nerd, world traveler, webmaster, former Hollywood and Disney performer, Meniere's Disease survivor, and proud wife to one fabulous hubby. I spent over 25 years in the entertainment industry, then decided to make a career change and go back to school. In 1998, I graduated Cal State Long Beach with a B.A. in Creative Writing. My first book, published in 2006, won several awards and I have been writing for publication ever since. I spent 9 years under multiple book contracts with SynergEbooks Publishing House (now defunct).
Fantasy and sci-fi are my favorite genres, and readers will find strong women and/or girls featured in every one of my novels. I recently moved from Los Angeles to the Oregon coast with my very supportive husband, where I'm writing another novel.
