I began writing in 1988three weeks after my father's death. I saw it as a gift of divine intervention and produced three to five pieces daily. Before that, serious writing had never crossed my mind.

After seven years, my poems resembled ing epics, and my songs and lyrics entire albums. I knew then it was time to writbooks.  I chose the horror genre initially, but now favor mystery and thriller because I realize that most horror events aren't inflicted by the dead or spirits at all, but by seemingly ordinary people. 
 

I adore writingI love creating both sympathetic and despicable characters. I love creating worlds and families and struggles. I love watching those characters overcome their hardships by courage and determination. The majority of my stories have happy endings. Howeversome have rather strange conclusions because life doesn't always give us the happy endings we desire. 
 
I try to avoid excessive psychology, over-analyzing, and political comment in my stories.  Too much ruins the simple enjoyment and mood of the story.  Too often the modern author's eagerness to incorporate his political views goes past creating a subtle character trait and the book becomes instead a political manual.

On the same note, I dislike college literary professors dissecting a work until the enjoyment disappears Creativity should be enjoyed and allowed to entertain, not dissected and destroyed An author's work should not be used to determine how an author actually lived, but read for what it is, a story.
 

My main influences and inspirations are Poe, Bradberry, Agatha Christie, Koontz, King and the majority of the classic literary greats. I have always adored non-fictional folklore in dealing with hauntings and strange events. 
 
I live in Southwestern Virginia my three-year-old son and my husband of four years, whose hobby is World History.  He often helps me with historical material.
