Su estreno “oficial” en el mundo romántico español tuvo lugar en abril de 2011, de la mano de “Princesa”, una novela que aborda el controvertido asunto de la diferencia de edad en la pareja, y que ha enamorado a las lectoras.

Hayden Chance was born with the insane notion that he came here to bring magic back into the world.
At 30 he discovered, much to his chagrin, that there was not a world of enchantment living behind the dusty shelves of University offices and libraries the way children’s books had sworn there was. What did live there was mold, contact dermatitis, angry women who hated Shakespeare for being a man and pale introverts with non-gender specific names who liked vegetarian Pad Thai.
Unimpressed by these discoveries he decided to leave teaching forever and strike out for a life of adventure!
He believes in showing the numinous behind the mundane. The mystical in the everyday lives of men and women (and ani ... read more

I write about people, their relationships and the dynamics within. I feature my work on website conversantwoman.com
I enjoy illustrating the wide range of emotions experienced in life by people of both genders and the permutations of social and personal cultural influences. I like to reach out and to make contact with readers walking beside them and not leaving them before I have evoked within them thought provoking emotions strung between tragedy and joy. I am a person touched by the irony of life and human frailty. Writing is as much a need for me as a want. I find myself traversing internalised continents exploring the complexities of life.

I write paranormal, sci-fi, and fantasy romance.
I have wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I write what I enjoy in the hopes that others will enjoy it as well. I've always been drawn to the macabre. Vampires, werewolves, you name it.
I've never written about the paranormal because it's popular. I do it because that's what I'm interested in. If the vampire fad ever passes, I'll still be sitting here in my Dracula cape, getting my fang on.

Before becoming a writer - well, actually I've ALWAYS been a writer in one form or another. Before I became a "published writer," I was a high school English teacher. At that time, most of my writing was marking comments on students' papers. I loved teaching, but wanted to spread my wings a bit, so I became a professional auctioneer. My husband and I owned an auction company in Florida where I involved myself in studying artifacts, collectibles, antique furniture, etc. I used many of my discoveries in my writing.

I always loved making up stories, especially when I was a kid getting into trouble, which happened quite often. They were incredible, and hard to believe, but they worked. I only got spanked half of the time. Plus it was an easy way to make friends. I was the ugly duckling that always got picked on, and it was better to make things up, than get beat up. All those crazy stories running around in my head eventually found their way down on paper, and my love for making up stories turned to writing them. Unfortunately, after high school I stopped. I found myself married with children, and without any time to write. For the past twenty years nursing has been my love. Then I lost my job and everything that I owned. I ... read more
