When I discovered that editors would pay for my
soapbox tirades as long as they were neatly typed and had a catchy
opening, a decade-long sideline as an arts critic commenced. Who says
one can’t put an English degree to good use? Somewhere in there I
studied dance for fourteen years, played (and still play) harp and
recorders in Celtic and early music ensembles, and wrote and costumed a
masque for the Shakespeare Festival.
For me, all artistic pursuits are an adjunct to
storytelling. I wrote my first full-length novel in high school, mostly
during social studies. More followed, with monsters, ghosts, and
swashbuckling always somewhere in the genetic code.
Paranormal romance was a natural fit for my
strengths as an author. Step into Darkness and Draw Down the
Darkness, my first published novels, are both historical romances
with strong magical elements and a generous helping of derring-do.
Other completed works include a contemporary series with a
demon-busting agency and a vampire collections agent.
I live in Victoria, British Columbia with two
cats, three harps, and far too many books.
