I have always been an independent person as far back as I can remember. I was the first one out of the house even though I was the middle child, and in my own apartment as soon as I could afford it. Of course I forgot to budget for food so it was quite a struggle at first. However, the struggle abated quickly as my job positions climbed. I quit my job as Director of IT & Financial Services after my second child but not before starting up my own business designing websites. Designing websites and working on the Internet gave me the freedom to raise my kids but has been very challenging.
The one thing people like most about me is if I say I’m going to do something, I do it. Whether I fail at it or succeed I don’t stop trying until I have exhausted all options. I started writing in 2008 because I have always had story ideas in my head. I have always encouraged my friends to write (for years) and now I wonder subconsciously if I was trying to convince myself to write. They do say some people are afraid of their own successes but I don’t think that applies to me or if it did I think I have passed that hurdle now.
I started writing my first novel on Sunday mornings as my husband would always tell everyone in the family to get ready to leave to run errands “Get your shoes and coats on we’re leaving….” Well, we did and we would all stand at the door waiting impatiently for him, yet it would take him at least an hour to get there himself. I started sitting at my PC, waiting, not wanting to start a project I couldn’t finish, until one day I did just that. One chapter led to another and the economy slowed and then my friend who had started writing herself encouraged me to write more. After several months I had written my first novel. I have since started writing the sequel to 3:17am ...the waking hour.
Even though I have run my own business out of my house and am raising three boys for the past twelve years, I have loved it. I enjoy writing more so than I have anything else and I plan to continue to keep writing from here on out.

To fall in love so profoundly, only to find out he's been poisoned and transformed into something... something you may not be able to live with.
And he was poisoned because they were after you.
