I've always loved to write - from binders of letters for school friends to long updates for family members via snail mail, words have always been a way for me to forge close relationships with those I love.
In 2005, I began to write my first novel, a paranormal romance, "Dreams of Home" and in doing so, I found a new passion. A passion for creating characters, personalities and emotions.
I have since written multiple fiction novels, most of them touching on horror.

I’ve spent most of my life in Colorado and currently live just outside of Denver. I write my books on a laptop perched atop a rather creaky desk, surrounded by two crazy and loving cats. I love to travel and have visited 27 of the 50 states, as well as Canada, Ireland and England. And there are still a lot of places I want to go. And go back to.
I spent entirely too many years in the gray dullness of the corporate world, imagining exciting adventures as I punched numbers on a keyboard. During that time, I worked on a degree in English Literature, but never quite managed to complete it. Mostly because I was too busy reading and creating fantasy worlds in my head. It’s actually my love of reading and imagini ... read more

I'm a former globetrotter, still living life on the edge. Travelling days started in the 60's with an overland journey to India in a beaten-up camper-van. One of the last passenger ships plying between Southampton and Australia took me to a new life down under in the 70's. My first novel, Pursuit to Paradise, set in Thailand, was published in 2010 when writing as Mark Damaroyd. A novella, inspired by visits to Polynesia, Dicing with Diamonds, followed. After several turbulent years in South East Asia, a memoir, The Great Lottery Pay-off, was completed in 2014.

When I thought of a future career I always wanted to be a writer. What I would write about didn’t matter, I only knew that I wanted to be writing something all the time and getting paid to do it didn’t seem like a bad idea. I started writing constantly when I was 8 years old, I wrote short stories and diary entries. I discovered how interesting poetry was when I was 14 years old and started writing poems. I was always going to the library and borrowing books about writing. When a discount bookstore opened up I started buying books about writing, but continued to borrow writing books from the library. I’d spend hours writing every night, often until past 1am. I fell asleep while writing and there would b ... read more

What does a name mean to you? A name without any information attached is often just as good as an anonymous name, a nickname or a code name. So you see one might want to pick a name that reflects what they're writing about. This is why i picked Voodoo Shampoo. Each of my stories is supposed to give you exactly that feeling. That of a sweet and fresh smelling shampoo enchanted with some sort of obscure magic. On other sites i use a shampoo bottle as an avatar, with a bit of a "magic" color touch, trying to give once again exactly that feeling.

Have you ever wanted to visit Alaska?
Saturday nights our local community center in Anchorage, Alaska held a dance for kids from 10 to 13 years old. I was just 12 at the time and we did a lot of square dancing. Then for the last 30 minutes we danced to rock and roll music..
One Saturday night they ask me if I would like to choose the music for the rock and roll segment, introduce the songs and play the records I had selected. For a 12 year old that was pretty exciting.
I said yes, but I had no idea what to say, so I quickly thought about how the local radio DJs introduced their music and I came up with a story about each song.
After I introduced the 3rd record, I looked over to the side of t ... read more

Other than believing faeries do come into her house and hide things from her and mess around for fun, she maintains a fairly simple life. It consists mostly of writing, reading, and watching movies.
