Writer. Book Critic. Mother. Animal Lover. Twitter addict. Insomniac.
I have dreams and aspirations of being a published author. When I'm not dreaming I spend most of my time caring for a Tiny Tyrant and her furry best friend, Mutt. My house and my electronics are cluttered with books I've read, books I'm reading, and books to read. I also pretend to be a housewife in my spare time, occasionally cooking and cleaning. Writing and reading are my two biggest passions other than pretending to be a T-Rex princess pony who can only eat pink Starburst with my little one. I also use movie quotes and song lyrics constantly in conversation and freak out/pass out at the sight of slugs.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It actually started out as a murder mystery that revolved around geocaching but I couldn't get my characters to cooperate with me on the geocaching so I scrapped that idea, kept the characters, and tweaked the murder mystery so that it worked with my characters instead of the other way around. I really love these characters and I'm so glad I could finally find them a home together.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing silly stories when I was really young but the first thing I can actually remember writing was a poem that I wrote when I was 7 on our family's first computer. The computers at school didn't have color and our new computers spiffy writing software had different colors you could use on the font and I used a different color for each line and wrote a poem with the names of the corresponding colors in them. And my mom thought it was so good she managed to get it published two years later.
