Publisher info

Born in the Midwest, I've lived all over the USA since I finished college in California. Me and my guy have been together for 46 years now, with 2 daughters and 5 grandsons. We've finally settled in northeast Georgia.

I write mostly mainstream sensual Fantasy Romance, often with a twist of the paranormal. My first published book was Gambler's Folly, which I published through Bookstrand. I have published the sequels to Gambler's Folly here at Smashwords.
Dante's Angel--Book 2
The Russian--Book 3

Gambler's Folly is futuristic, with intrigue and shape-shifters.

I have a second series with four books--and more to come--called Esperance.
Jareth, First Lord--Book 1
Viviane, First Lady--Book 2
Morgan--The Pixie and the Green Man--Book 3
Too Many Talents--Viviane and Connell--Book 4

I have a stand-alone published under the pen-name Sultonna Nadine, titled Master of the Fleet. Set in the late 1800's, in an alternate time-line of the American Northwest. elemental magic is nothing unusual. Richard, as Master of the Fleet has control over wind and water. What he doesn't have control of is his heart.

I have several more books planned in each series, as well as several stand-alones in the works.

I am a Reiki practitioner, a second degree martial artist, musician and artist, as well as a writer. I feel this background gives me a lot of experience to draw on for my characters.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Northwestern Ohio, among wheat and cornfields. But since I left college, I've lived everywhere from Georgia and the Carolinas to Wyoming, Utah, California and Oregon. My Dad was a farmer, and farming has a way of teaching one perseverance, patience, and hard work. All these things combined, I feel, give me a broad base from which to shape my characters, as well as the perseverance to work through the snags and irritation of shaping plots and plotting story lines.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in high school, but have only recently begun to write for publication. My first published book was Gambler's Folly, which was published in 2013. Since then, I have published three other novels and have one awaiting cover art.
