Hello Patron-type people! :)

I'm a writer of weird things, an editrix extraordinaire, and a little bit of a nerd. I am also a religious viewer of the show Supernatural and was devastated when Sense8 was cancelled (Damn you, Netflix!). I live in Atlanta, GA, with my hubby — who is also my muse :)  — and three cats who basically rule the house, but won’t pay the mortgage.

I've spent the last ten years helping other writers improve their craft and have decided that 2018 is the year for my writing! I've been focusing on writing and publishing almost exclusively.

My first indie release is Jivaja, formerly known as Soul Cavern. I am currently serializing it on my website. You can read it for free here, but if you can't wait, there are a couple options. At the $3 Patron level, you get each section a week before it hits the website. And if you really can't wait, it will be available for purchase as both an ebook and a print book very soon. 

I have another book that will be featured on #FreeFictionFriday once Jivaja is concluded. It is (currently) called Pandora Twins. It is about two young sisters who discover they are the guardians of Pandora's Box, which is not what the myths have led us to believe.

My writing tends to fall into the Urban Fantasy genre, generally, but often has a lot of horrific elements. I grew up on horror -- Stephen King (of course!), Clive Barker, Dean Koontz -- and so it often creeps into my own writing.

I've also discovered that I quite like the "trope, but not trope" vibe. For example, Jivaja is a vampire book without vampires. The Visci do live on human blood, but they are not undead humans. So vampires, but not vampires. I also have a series that has zombies, but not zombies.

It's a thing ;)

So that's my writing! I hope you like the rewards I've set up. I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you! 

Also, I love to travel and I go to a lot of conventions, so I'll be sure to post updates on where I will be and when. I hope to be able to connect with some of my Patrons in meatspace too!

And in closing...
I've been called the kind of evil that inspires hugs. ;)
