I write books combining Adult Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, and Science Fiction. If this strikes your fancy, then you’ve come to the right place.
I believe in fiction as an escape, with devastatingly beautiful women and incredibly sexy men.
In my books, you will find characters with psychic abilities, such as telekinesis and telepathy, and a completely different view of a succubus than you've ever encountered before.
You will also find a world based on worship of the Goddess, and the offering of that worship through her priestesses, the succubi. If you are afraid of strong female characters who aren't afraid to love, you're probably in the wrong place.
I made silver and turquoise jewelry for almost a decade, ended up in nursing school, then took a master’s in business. Along the way I worked in construction, as a newspaper editor, a teacher, and somehow found a career working with computers.
I’ve always been shy and I have spent a lot of my life alone with a book. I first tried to write a novel when I was 15, a science fiction book set in an alternate reality. I wrote about a dozen pages with a pencil. I kept it for years, occasionally coming across it and reading it. It was awful, and it kept me from trying again for a long time.
So I made up stories in my head to entertain myself. If I don’t have a book and I’m on a plane or someplace else that’s boring, such as driving across the country, I make up stories.
I received a Nook for my birthday a couple of years ago and loved it, and started reading about the revolution in e-publishing, and the success some indie authors had with self-published works. This past Thanksgiving, I was discussing this with a friend, and mentioned that I had conceived a story I thought might be appealing to some people. She encouraged me to write it down.
As to my other interests, I love the outdoors, especially the Rocky Mountains. I’ve skied since high school, with one broken leg and one torn ACL to show for it. I’ve hiked and camped all my life. I love to travel, though I haven’t done enough of it. I’ve seen a lot of Russia and Mexico, not enough of England. Amsterdam is amazing, and the Romanian Alps are breathtaking. Lake Tahoe is a favorite, and someday I’d like to see Banff.
I have a very significant other, two cats and two Basset Hounds. I’m currently living in Baltimore, nine blocks from the harbor, but still own a home in New Mexico that I see too infrequently.

BR Kingsolver’s tag cloud
Smashwords book reviews by BR Kingsolver

In a very short space, Darien has crafted a compelling character, one who draws you to her and makes you want her to not only survive but thrive.
Lydia is a young woman in a post-apocalyptic world who seeks to hide a precious secret. In a world where everyone seeks to survive until tomorrow, she also seeks to make life a little brighter for everyone she meets.
Not only a compelling story that will stick in the back of your mind long after you read it, but a hot, arousing read that will rivet your attention while you're reading it. More than just erotica.
