Phoenix was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and grew up in California. She came from a long line of Americans who were pioneers and individualists. The family tree is filled with rugged people, rough coal miners, pioneers, and farmers living in log cabins in the early west.

Phoenix loves researching cultures, history, philosophy, and religions. And is never content with the way things are explained. She loves to look into the nooks and crannies and wonder, what if. All of which, led to the creation of A WHISPER FROM EDEN.

Phoenix lives in Hollywood with her husband, Gary, and her ornery tom cat, Snickers.

  • O N C E-----Ask me anything, not Love on Sep. 30, 2012

    Mian e-mailed me about doing a book review. He is from Pakistan and has an amazing resume besides being a novelist. He has written three novels and this one is a romance. I am a very adventurous reader, determined to read many genres and writing styles. Mian intrigued me, so decided to give it a go. I downloaded the book and started to read. The protagonist is a famous novelist named Morkel who has a weird pen name - M, No Time for Love. He is a very self-absorbed man who meets a beautiful woman in Kiev while on vacation. He is too self-centered to realize he has broken the woman's heart when he leaves.But events occur that change Morkel's life and the author grabbed my heart. ONCE - Ask Me Anything, Not Love is written a unique style. It is not "literary" or Americanized. I would have to say it is innocent, straightforward, and thought provoking. The story is very, very touching.
