Wondering Who I Am?

I often wonder myself, but likely on a deeper level than you would want to read about.

Writing and books have always been my passion. I used to take home extra papers that we used for creative writing at school so I could write more stories. Almost all my writing was fantasy, so it's so surprise I continue to write in that genre today.

I work part-time for Pen and Kink Publishing as a publicist. Helping to bring books into the world is amazing. I think I truly missed my calling not going into the publishing industry earlier. I owned my own business, a retail store, for three and a half years. Before that I worked in the news industry for over 10 years, mostly as a news director at two radio stations. It was a great experience and I met lots of wonderful people.

I have read Tarot cards for over 20 years, though it’s taken a back seat (like most things in my life) since I had children. I’m also a certified Kundalini yoga teacher. I studied Astrology for several years and knew how to draw and interpret birth charts, which map out all the planets at the time you were born.

One thing that I refused to give up when I had children was reading. I buy my purses based on the ability to fit my book in them. I love Anne Rice’s vampire chronicles. I’m also a big Terry Goodkind fan and recently discovered Lilith Saintcrow. Other favourite authors are Neil Gaiman, Marion Zimmer Bradley (her Avalon series), J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter was amazing!), and Clive Barker – they all have special places on my bookshelf at home.

Music plays a big part in my life and writing. I usually have a soundtrack for the story I'm working on. That's why I've included a What I'm Listening To page. Some of my favourite bands/artists include Soundgarden, Chris Cornell, Slash, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, and White Zombie.

Thanks for stopping by!
