“Life is chaos and reading is my relaxation. Writing comes second only to my family and my music. I love playing the bass and singing backup vocals for my husband. A tattoo artist turned author, following my dream and loving it!"

"I am currently writing True Chaos, book 2 in the True Fate series! It is a hectic process being a writer, editor and formatter but luckily I have my best friend who is also my supportive husband to cheer me on. I'm definitely enjoying the painful journey of becoming a self-published author!”

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always loved reading and once I got an eReader I browsed the free books and found some of my favorite authors today. I was noticing that the books I was reading were "smashwords" editions and I looked into it. It turned out alot of authors are self publishing so I decided to give it a shot.

I have been writing stories for a long time and decided to give it a go.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I like putting my imagination to the test. I am an avid reader and reviewer and I love getting lost in a book. I found myself getting into my writing like I was hanging in suspense which I thought was hilarious but it has been an adventure!

    The Hidden Series is Young Adult Paranormal at it's very best!, I absolutely am loving this series. It has every element I love my YA reads to have with the perfect amount of paranormal in there. I like the storyline and plot as well it kept me engaged and reading until I couldn't hold my eyes open anymore. Life got in the way but I made time for this undeniably GOOD READ!!! This books has it all! Mystery, intrigue, love, hate, friends, enemies, good guys, bad guys and hotness a plenty. Quickly placing as a favorite YA Paranormal Series! Just when you think you have it all figured out BAM! Nope! You were dead wrong! I LOVE IT!
