About Me

Welcome to my site. If you came here to find out more about me, I’m a storyteller, mama of three (though they are all adults now – where did the time go?), animal lover and dreamer.

For as long as I remember, I have always had an overactive imagination. I was the girl sitting in the back of the classroom staring out the window, lost in a world of my own making.

I especially enjoyed stories that were scary and suspenseful.

When I was ten, I somehow convinced my father to take me to see Vincent Price in “Theater of Blood.” Needless to say, my mother was not happy about that when she came home from her trip and found out. It wasn’t long after I discovered the magic of Alfred Hitchcock.  “Pycho” and “Rear Window” are two of my all-time favorite films. I can only aspire to be as good a storyteller as he was.

Over the years I found authors like Thomas Harris, Stephen King, Tami Hoag and Gillian Flynn. I received my BFA in acting from Virginia Commonwealth University and moved to Hollywood to pursue a career in the film industry as an actress.

Things didn’t quite work out as I planned. However, it was during that time I discovered my passion for writing and storytelling. I find great joy in writing frightening romantic suspense and straight suspense novels, I’m also working on a middle-grade suspense series.

I will be filming my first psychological suspense film in 2022.

If you enjoy romantic thrillers and psychological suspense, then I’m the author for you! You can find my books here.

I currently live in the Nashville, TN area, but feel Malibu, CA is where I’m meant to be. I cannot explain it, but my heart sings whenever I am in Malibu.
