I have one of those brains that won't turn off at night.

Congratulations to "Mary P." the winner of Alaina's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated.

I have one of those brains that won't turn off at night. Many nights I found it necessary to distract my intellect by revamping a movie, book or TV show in my mind so I could relax. I would twist and turn the plots and characters in each story to achieve an ending I preferred. Those adventures developed into side stories about my favorite minor characters. Each night I fell asleep in the midst of a grand adventure. 

Raising seven children taught me to appreciate the creativity of video games. One day it occurred to me to write an adventure that flowed like a video game. I added a touch of romance, and Hypnotic Journey was born. The HJ characters are like family to me. In Book 1, Forbidden Quest, my adventurers foolishly dive headlong into a world of magic they can’t even begin to understand.

My love for Science Fiction gave birth to the Treborel Series. Tempest Rise, Book 1 is a paranormal romance featuring a psychotic villain determined to destroy a young surgeon and her lover as they fight to survive the chaos of war. Book 2, Vengeance’s Fire continues the saga.

My contemporary romantic suspense series is The Rule Series. Three Year Rule, Book 1 features a stubborn psychologist named Beth, who meets a down to earth construction magnet who doesn’t believe in psychology. Her world swirls out of control not only from his lack of faith in her theories, but by the stalker that seeks to destroy her. 

In my latest series Archangel, Book 1, The Light of His Sword a young mother, Alyssa attempts to escape from a demon-worshiping cult. The cult leader is convinced Alyssa’s presence will assure their survival during the End of Days. As the demon horde closes in around her, a truck driver boldly offers his assistance and the chase is on.

    I write about friendship, and how it can carry you through situations you might not otherwise survive. My stories are exciting and slightly steamy. My books fade to dark when the steam begins to rise, but steam does rise and emotions do soar.

I will be giving away a digital copy of LIGHT OF HIS SWORD to one lucky person leaving a comment or email entry.
