So, you want to know more about me. Well, I’m glad you asked. Way back in 2011, I entered the world of published authors with my debut novel, Next Move, You’re Dead. I have to admit I was a bit surprised when I sold my first book. I guess all those long, crazy hours plunking away on my trusty laptop paid off. I can’t list any fancy writing classes I’ve taken or anything like that. Nope, I learned to write the hard way… with lots of mistakes and hopefully learning from them as I went along.
I started out as a Thriller author, but over time I’ve branched out into several genres. I’ve written a great YA Fantasy, a couple of children’s books where I did the illustrations myself, and I’ve also tried my hand at writing a couple of romantic stories with a paranormal twist. I know most writers stick with one or two genres, but the voices in my head always seem to win any discussion on what I write.
I don’t have any fancy awards for my writing….yet. I know other writers have lots of them, but I just don’t seem to get the urge to enter. I haven’t figured out yet if it’s out of laziness or fear of rejection. To be honest, it’s probably a little of both. I did; however, have my Next Move, You’re Deadly Trilogy on 100-Preloaded Kindle Fire’s given away in the VIP Swag Bags at the 2014 Emmy Awards. I was thrilled to have my ebook in the hands of over 600 of the Hollywood elite that night. Pretty cool, huh?
I’ve learned a few things since I published my debut book. So, I’m proud to say I’m the Founder of Deadly Reads, Deadly Reads Author Services, and the Host of the Deadly Reads Radio Podcast on our Youtube channel where we interview those in the publishing and entertainment industries. We have lots of fun and have meant some of the most interesting people.
Now, some personal info: I’m happily married to a wonderful man who is also my writing muse. We have two grown children. Our daughter is a police officer, and our son works for a company that does industrial construction. I’m so proud of both of them. Now, for the fun stuff. We are the proud grandparents of five beautiful grandchildren. We have three granddaughters and two grandsons. Being a grandma ROCKS!
However, those are not the only family members. You see, we have three four-legged fur-babies. Bailey is our sweet, little gentleman/chocolate lab, and then we have Sadie and Sassy, our adorable boxer pups. Sadie and Sassy as sisters and rescue dogs.
So, as you can see my world is fun and full of adventures each and every day. What more could a crazy writer ask for?
