I write under the names of Cornelia Amiri and Maeve Alpin. Let me tell you a litlle bit about me:
Books were always magical to me. When I was six, I made a little booth with a card table, like a lemonade-stand. But instead of drinks, I sold books I created. I wrote them in pencil on ruled paper, drew the illustrations and cover art with crayons and stapled them together. I started out a 5¢ a book, but it was only when I lowered the price down to free a little boy in my class came by on his bicycle and took them all.
From that day on, I never stopped writing for fun, but I veered off from professional writing due to the responsibilities and time restraints of a single mom. That was until I was introduced through books, to the woman who became my favorite historical character, Boudica. The Celtic Warrior Queen made me start writing professionally. I love history and in reading a book about the dark ages, I came across the rebel queen. She inspired me so much, I started jotting down notes, but they were fiction, visions of me involved in the Boudica revolt. Before I knew it, I had accidentally written a rough draft for a novel. And I've been writing books on purpose ever since. Drawing on my love of a happy ending I have currently penned over 30 published romance books under my name, Cornelia Amiri, and my pen name of Maeve Alpin.
Now, for the more mundane stuff. I and my muse, Severus the Cat, live amid the hustle and bustle of humid Houston, Texas, as does my wonderful son and granddaughter. When not writing, I love to read, watch movies, and attend local steampunk events and comic cons. I'm currently working on the next book in my Druidry and the Beast series and on a sci-fi comedy romance series with a Celtic goddess as the heroine.
