About Me

I am a lifelong writer and firmly believe that words flow through my veins. The Boys Club, a romantic suspense novel, was released on December 3, 2014. My thriller with a paranormal twist, Conduit, was published on March 5, 2014. In 2004, I published my first romantic suspense novel, False Security. Since that time, the book has been drastically re-written and the revised version is also available as an e-book for Kindle. I am hard at work on three books: the sequel to False Security (False Hope), the next Emily Monroe novel, aptly titled The Darkness, and a super secret project that will be announced hopefully in the spring.

I live in Overland Park, Kansas with my husband, our two beautiful cats, and our beloved dog. I have two sons who are off paving their own way in the world. I grew up in Wichita, Kansas, my hometown and where my books take place, and I will always be a Kansas girl at heart.

As a reader first, writer second, I love to discover new authors. My entire life has revolved around imaginary worlds contained within the covers of a book. My aunt introduced me to Stephen King and a little book called Christine in eighth grade, and my life was never the same. As a geek-extraordinaire, I love comics and graphic novels, and also review those, both on my own and as a guest contributor with Fanboy Comics.

I have studied criminal justice and behavior since high school, which I incorporate into my writing. If writing is my blood, then music is the air in my lungs. I have played piano since I was five and I love writing music. I am also hard-core gamer. My go-to video games series are Resident Evil, Uncharted, The Walking Dead (Telltale Games), Dead Space, and Batman Arkham. Most recently, The Evil Within scared the hell out of me!
