Comments from the author about writing: What can I say, I love to write and tell stories. The minute I sit down at my keyboard I escape into another world where anything is possible. I was born into a creative family who believed that your creative abilities were only for play; you can't make a living as an artist or writer, you need to get a "real" job to be taken seriously as a professional adult. I, of course, refuse to accept that and insist on calling myself an artist and writer. I started out writing paranormal suspense and now write mystery, usually with paranormal elements thrown in just to make it interesting. My characters are awkward and cynical and my readers tell me they can easily relate to them. Those who know me recognize me in each character I write. Perfect, since I put a little bit of myself into everything I write. I live in Des Moines and graduated from Grand View College with a Bachelor's in Fine Art, Minor in Art Therapy. I'm constantly evolving as a writer, artist, and person so I never know what direction my creative soul will take next.
