I now live in a sunny part of Australia after spending many years in developing countries in the South Pacific. My greatest loves are traveling, anywhere and everywhere, meeting crazy characters, and visiting the Australian outback.
I adore history, especially the many-layered society of the late Regency to early Victorian eras. In and around London, my titled heroes and heroines may live a privileged and gay life but I also love digging deeper into the grittier and seamier levels of British life and write about the heroes and heroines who challenge traditional manners, morals, and occupations, either through necessity or desire.

Why is it called bytestories?
This is a place for "byte-sized" stories. There is a 1500 character (about 200-250 words) limit in place for two main reasons. We want you to know that "War and Peace" is not required to leave your mark. As they say, time is money so we also want your readers to gain the ... read more

For me, everything is about sex, and sex is all about power and control. I spend all my time dreaming up hot new ways to delight readers with stories including these themes--whether they include science-fiction, fantasy, paranormal, or more realistic aspects.
If it involves hot, steamy submission, or one dominant personality asserting just exactly how dominant he or she is, I love it, and I want to write about it.

As a stay-at-home mom of three, I've enjoyed writing in my down time.
During the summer of 2012, I wrote a fun movie script for my kids and the neighbor kids. They each got a copy of the script, memorized their lines scene-by-scene, and we filmed the movie. It was honestly one of the most fun and rewarding activities we did together. Since then, they've asked me each summer to film another movie as it was the highlight of ALL summer activities ever. 'There's No Such Thing As Ghosts, Right?' is the script I wrote. I hope your kids will enjoy filming it as much as our group did!
