Okay, now for the bio....
Many moons ago I was a scientist in a neuroscience lab where I got to play with brains and illegal drugs.
Now, I’m an award-winning indie author who turns wickedly strong tea into imaginative fiction (so, basically still playing with brains and drugs) that's often set in an altered version of my hometown -- Portland, Oregon -- or the Pacific Northwest.
My fascination for myths, history, and how they interweave inspired my two historical fantasy series, The Osteria Chronicles and my second series, Domna.
But all those ancient myths and angst-ridden heroes got a bit too serious for someone with a strange sense of humor and odd way of looking at the world.
So, while sitting at my grandmother’s funeral, my brain came up with an idea for a contemporary fantasy trilogy that’s filled with magic, mystery, snarky humor, and the dead who just won’t stay dead. That idea turned into The Cassie Black Trilogy, which has turned into a fan favorite.
I'm currently working on a new series where dragons do the sleuthing when people start getting bumped off at a very unusual circus.
When I’m not creating worlds or killing off characters, I can be found gardening, dreaming of my next travel adventure, working as an unpaid servant to four cats and two guinea pigs, or concocting something in the kitchen.
