Section Break - About the Author

I’ve been storying ever since I can remember. Storying is what I called it when I was eight and my mom asked me what I was doing with two sticks in my hands. She caught me shaking them while talking. In my mind they weren’t sticks – they were the characters in my story. It was a habit of mine to escape into these stories I made up. I did it whenever things seemed too boring. You should hear my story about broccoli.

Now, of course, I write these stories down. The idea of being a writer was always abstract to me. My English teacher in high school encouraged me to explore it after I turned in the “Day I Was Born” assignment in a folder labeled “Top Secret.” The whole paper was written from the perspective of an FBI agent doing deep background research into her subject, which was me of course. In college, I decided to dabble with writing. I took several creative writing courses and one of my majors was English. I got a lot of positive feedback from that, but the concept of writing was still something I was scared to pursue. What if I really sucked at it? I preferred to preserve my dreams intact and got a practical job as a teen librarian. I was very happy with my job but somewhere along the line my writing bug took over. One long weekend I sat down at the computer and wrote for two days nonstop. The first book I ever wrote was finished. And, side note, will probably never see the light of day because I really had no clue what I was doing.

After several more years, and a move to a new city, I finally sat down and wrote again – this time with much more purpose. I published the book and sent the link to my mom, telling her I had finally written one of my stories down for everyone to see. I then published one more each year for three years. I had a plan, you see. I needed a small library of books before I wanted to start investing in advertising. I was well on my way. But life has a funny sense of humor when it comes to those best laid plans.

Two years ago I was called back into the hospital for a CT scan. They’d seen something in my chest during an x-ray of my lungs. Obviously, this is not a call you want to get. I looked at all the images they showed me. For the first time in my life, I couldn’t story something to make it more exciting. Two kinds of cancer. They’d have to crack my rib-cage to remove the rather large tumor. I was only thirty-seven. The whole thing was cliché in how unreal it was. It also stopped me cold in my writing. I needed to put all my energy into solving that problem. So I did. A little over a year ago I finished my chemo and I got my port taken out. And in the last few months I’ve written two more books and just finished publishing my fifth.

So, this was a long walk but hopefully worth it. My hobbies are kicking cancer’s ass, writing stories and, of course, nachos. Nachos can be a hobby. Don’t you let anyone tell you any different.

I hope you enjoy my stories!
