MusicOfTheSoul-CoverI got my start writing romance novels by accident. I have always been drawn to strong female characters in books, like Honor Harrington. And I also believe that there is a lack of LGBT characters in traditional media. So one day I came up with a story idea that combines the two… two days later I completed the manuscript for Music of the Soul.

My writing style may not be the most professional nor grammatically correct, but I never profess to be an English major, just a person that wants to share a story. I maintain that my primary language is sarcasm.

Each of my books features strong likeable female characters that are flawed. I think that flaws and emotional or physical scars make us human and give us more character than simply conforming to some “social norm”. Among the many anti-hate, anti-bullying messages I address in my books, the most important message I want my readers to take to heart is that your scars make you beautiful.

I have also started a SciFi series, The Valkyrie Chronicles, and two paranormal romance series, The Bridge, and Drakon. All of which feature strong and likeable LGBT characters.

TheBridge-Trolls-CoverA little about The Bridge: Trolls-
The Bridge series tells the story of a woman in Cincinnati, named Evangeline Kane, who is thrown into the world of magic and the fae when she becomes shadow-bound to the Roebling Suspension Bridge as its Troll. She starts out a a reluctant hero, fighting the fae of ill intent who come through the gateway from the world of fae to the mortal realm on her bridge. With the city’s enforcer and her love interest, Sharee Krynn, the Custodian, at her side, she learns to be the hero the city needs and to love her bridge.

DeadShot-CoverA little about Dead Shot-
McKenzie is a soldier and her girlfriend, Katie, is a contractor with the United Nations peacekeeping force. McKenzie’s squad has named her Dead Shot for her uncanny ability with weapons. When her unit is ambushed, will her skills be enough?

Like all Music of the Soul books, it can be read as a standalone book but weaves its way through prior stories in the series.
