I’m a voracious reader, love movies and cooking, and am an avid supporter of Indie artists. After living in Toronto for years, I now reside in London Ontario Canada with my husband, sons, and three pugs. Yes… I know… if you visit my website there are only pictures of the pugs. In my defense, they’re so adorable.
I haven’t always made smart life choices, but the people I met and roads I took (even the dark ones littered with potholes) fed a passion for creative writing. In the early years, I wrote song lyrics for a band and magazines published my short stories, but I worked full-time with youngsters whose circumstances had forced them to rise above astonishing adversity. They taught me the gift of adaptation and perseverance, but the horrors I witnessed were overwhelming. I returned to school for Business Administration and left the corporate world in 2013 to publish my debut novel.
Most people thought this was a monumentally stupid thing to do, but I’ve never been one to run with the herd. With the help of a fantastic book team, I published Simon Says, Perdition Games in 2014, Skully, Perdition Games in 2015, and Red Rover, Perdition Games will release in 2016. Skully, Perdition Games received accolades from editorial reviewers, such as Kirkus Reviews, San Francisco Book Review, and Readers’ Favorite.
Each story has a standalone plot. The link is the returning protagonists, Samantha McNamara and Reece Hash, but I warn you these are not cozy mysteries with pugs solving crimes while their hapless owners flounder in their paw prints. Although there's very little graphic violence, they are dark and there is profanity.
Monsters stand behind us in grocery store checkouts. They serve us food in restaurants and sit beside us at concerts. You never know the inner workings of anyone’s mind. Evil lives amongst us, camouflaged by normalcy and obscured by intelligence.
Come, play a game with me.
