Hello Readers! I am a young teacher and mother from Oklahoma. I have published a collection of poetry, Bone House, and I have recently unleashed my first novel upon the world. Revelation is the first book in what will become the Revelation trilogy. I am currently working on the second novel, The Seven, due to hit the market in 2016. Look for many more books to come! They will be available in paperback and Kindle versions through Amazon.
When did you first start writing?
I have always had the gut feeling that I needed to write, but it wasn't until I reached college that I was actually able to come up with anything substantial. Poetry was my escape, my way to cope with emotions. But once I found my happy place, I couldn't write in that form any longer. It was then that I realized I could finally manage the novel. Poetry doesn't come to me anymore, but at least it was excellent while it lasted.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Ah, now that's a long story, but to make it as short as possible, I would say it started with a dream. Well . . . actually that isn't true. I initially had the idea of Revelation in my first year of college, I couldn't get it onto paper, and put it off until I had a dream. I tried to write again, but I still couldn't make any sense of what I wanted to do. So I thought I needed to give it up--for five more years. I had completely forgotten about it, but one day in December of 2013, all of the ideas merged into the perfect plot. Everything came together and finally made sense. I suppose I had evolved enough as a writer to succeed this time.
