Bethany lives in Houston with her husband, daughter and son. After practicing as an RN for five years, Bethany left the nursing field to pursue a fiction writing passion God planted in her heart when she was a child. Nancy Drew mysteries were her guilty pleasure during those early years, so she naturally gravitates her pen toward the things that go bump in the night.
She draws many interesting and perplexing facts from her former career. These come in handy when her characters get themselves into serious scrapes, and gives a psychological spin to many of her plots.
She's allergic to milk, Sulfa drugs, and people who stop in the middle of intersections while driving.
What is your writing process?
I'm an outliner. I have a paragraph written for each scene, which includes motivation, goal, and conflict, before I even type, "chapter one."
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember listening to the story, The Velveteen Rabbit, and thinking it held a much more profound theme than any I'd encountered in my young years. The idea of the rabbit becoming real because the boy made it real, completely resonated with me!
