Welcome to my site

If I could have one magical superpower, it would be to talk to animals. Or maybe to shift into animal form. Definitely, fantastical critters and magic often feature in my stories. So until I can change into a griffin and fly away, I write dark paranormal action and romance tales. I am also passionate about fiber art, photography, children’s literacy, rescue animals, nature, and genre-bending fiction.
