I am an international-selling author of multi-genre romance ... and am proud of that fact!
Like many writers, I began creating stories in my childhood. My family say I was a 'daydreamer', who created stories that were then acted out. This led to my first attempt at a full-length novel at the age of seventeen.
I come from a large family, consisting of six siblings. The experience of growing up in such a personality-fueled environment has enabled me to portray diverse and complex characters in my writing.
Being a naturally conceived identical triplet, I attribute the constant comparison to two other people (and having to struggle for a personal identity) as the impetus behind my creation of independent, yet vulnerable, women in my writing.
I hold a graduate degree in counselling, which I feel has allowed me to delve into the murky depths of human behavior. In particular, the interplay of the psyche of the antagonist versus the protagonist fascinates me. This is why I write in multiple viewpoints.
Recently, I completed short courses in both Forensic Science and Forensic Anthropology to assist in making my crime-related stories more "true-to-life".
Before I became a full-time writer, I worked as a professional astrologer, receptionist, and accounts clerk. I am also an amateur astronomer, huge Michael Jackson fan, Martial arts movie buff, MMA lover, mystic, and vegan.
You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Smashwords, Kobo, iTunes, and Amazon.
