Willow's major in college was Art, and while at SFSU to get a teaching credential she was hired by EGW Publishing as a graphic artist. When an assistant editor position opened up, she was pretty much hired on the spot. From there, she helped develop new titles, became a department editor, and eventually a managing editor.
After the birth of her son, she went freelance and successfully sold five non-fiction books to Citadel, a Kensington Publishing imprint, as well as multiple magazine articles to various publications.
Willow's first love, however, was always fantasy novels. Non-fiction, while a perfectly valid market, wasn't entirely satisfying to write about. Then she read Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury, and figured there was no reason that she couldn't write fiction books, tell stories that readers would enjoy, and have a lot of fun in the process. Turns out that's a pretty good combination.

This paranormal/urban fantasy novel brings readers along on the Mason brothers' shared journey of discovery, because where one brother goes, the other two follow, sometimes kicking and screaming.
