I've been writing pretty much forever. At the age of eight, I wrote a story about a saber-toothed tiger that encounters a time machine. The story was three paragraphs long. Many years and many paragraphs later and here I am, still writing about weird things.
I have a thing for dark lords, dark heroes and antiheroes. I tend to root for villains, because they're usually a lot more interesting than heroes. But they have to be nuanced villains, not totally evil. I love variations on the Beauty and the Beast story, awkward courtships and slow-burn romances. Think "Pride and Prejudice," not 50 Shades. It's all about the relationship!
I live with my husband, four dogs and assorted livestock on the edge of the woods above the valley east of Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, the Land of Enchantment, a place where the view goes on forever.
