Biography

I majored in English at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Kira’s story came to me during my first year while waiting for class to start. I began to scribble and the next thing I knew I had the beginnings of a story. I continued to imagine what would happen next and wrote bits and pieces in between classes and during work breaks. Once I typed up all the notes, I realized I had enough for a full novel, and ideas for more, resulting in the Elemental Series.

I enjoy a variety of books, but especially enjoyed the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling and the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. If you also like those book series, I hope you will enjoy my Elemental Series.

One thing I am asked constantly about this series is if Satan or demon worship is involved. There is absolutely nothing like that in the books. In my books, demons are more like humans with special gifts or powers. They can be good or evil. Some of the demons hate humans, while others protect humans and the earth. It could be compared to the concepts behind books or entertainment involving vampires, witches, or mutants as defenders of mankind. It symbolizes ideologies and behaviors that we sometimes struggle with in the world today, and challenges the view of judging or hating a group of people simply because of something that identifies them, whether it's their race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, socio-economics, etc. I, myself, am a Christian who believes in tolerance and acceptance, and that hate only breeds more hate. My books are family friendly for all age groups. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.
