Just published Plenty, my second award-winning novel. Plenty, inspired by Fifty Shades fury and Hunger Games awe, captivates as a spine-tingling story about the risky yet all-important road to self-actualization and happiness. Can a gritty, dark, intense horror thriller be both suspenseful and meaningful? Yes, Plenty proves the point. For readers who abhor female objectification and sex kitten-for-a-sadist romance novels, Plenty offers a plethora of promise. Plenty holds special appeal for resilient, smart, resourceful women who rescue themselves and the men who love them. Plenty infused with spice, a lot of naughty-never nice. Not for the faint of heart or for those seeking a slow, tame sleepy time story. Action-packed Plenty jets along at a jolting James Bond pace.
Overjoyed to announce that Plenty, my second novel, has also earned distinction as a DAN POYNTER'S 2016 GLOBAL EBOOK AWARD BRONZE MEDALIST-FICTION SUSPENSE.
My fascination with fiction began in middle school when I entered a book-reading contest and won. As an ardent fan of the resonating narrative and the cliffhanger, I decided to dedicate myself to becoming a skilled writer. When college professors spotlighted my writing in the classroom, it anchored my interest in becoming a novelist. I continued to pursue my education at UCLA, via the UCLA Writers' Extension Program, where my writing earned praise from an Award-Winning Author. Of equal and enduring importance, in my life, a passion for horses. As an avid, lifelong equestrian and horse owner, I lived on a ranch with my family which we shared with a menagerie of four-legged friends.
