Bio: I was born and raised in a small town in rural southern Illinois. I have always had a love of reading, writing, and history. My first love was Gothic Romance, then Gothic Horror, in high school I read Dune and fell in love with Science Fiction, after high school I picked up a Darkover novel by Marion Zimmer Bradley and fell in love with Fantasy, now I read everything I can get my hands on by James Rollins or Steve Berry. As you can see, my reading has been all over the map. I would like to think that my writing has been inspired by them all. I wrote and published my first novel, The Legend of the Swamp Witch, this summer. I am currently working on a project called The Soiled Dove Sagas about young women who find themselves making their livings as prostitutes in the 19th century Old West. With my first book I realized, writing is not the hard part, Marketing is. I have been struggling with different marketing techniques. Hopefully, I will find one that works very soon!
