Introducing Myself

My Education

I do not have a writing background per se. I've been primarily a poet, but I have been working hard to polish my writing skills.


I have a BA in English with a history minor and an MA in Creative Writing - emphasis on Fiction and English.

My writing roots

I've written poetry for years, but it wasn't until later in my life when I was attending the Santa Fe University of Art and Design I started writing fiction.  It was while I interned with an online magazine called the Santa Fe Literary News that I developed a love of writing.  I also slowly gained confidence in my writing ability, and although that confidence may be fragile,  I'm still pursuing my dream of being a writer.

My style

 I am a die hard Stephen King and Dean Koontz fan, although I also love Jennifer Ashley, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Keri Arthur. Not even horror related, but I also love Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series.

I love to write horror stories with paranormal influences interwoven with myth and legends. I especially like to write  stories where the bad guy gets their just rewards in the end. As they say, Karma is a bitch.
