As far as a bio is concerned, I am
a writer, an editor, a manuscript formatter, a contest judge, a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a business analyst,
not necessarily in that order.
I first sat down to seriously write in February of 2007 after my daughter asked
if I could do anything what would it be. From that moment on, I haven’t looked back.
My first book, DARK RECKONING was originally released on July 5, 2010 through FIDO Publishing, which
also happened to be my birthday! Personally, I can’t think of a better birthday gift, can you? In addition to
DARK RECKONING, I had another July release - this one on the erotic thriller side of the fence - SURVIVAL GAMES which came
out on July 19, 2010 through eXcessica. Both of these titles along with several others in both series are now under
my own label as of July 2011.
For the most part, my genre of choice is a toss up between thrillers and horror. My stories run the gambit from erotic to supernatural to urban
fantasy and most of them have romantic undertones intertwined with my unique paranormal/supernatural slant manifesting in dark themes
and twisted villans doling out a fair amount of violence. They are not for the faint of heart.
heroes and heroines are three dimensional, real and infallible, making both good and bad choices and sometimes
those questionable decisions come with a high price. I don't believe in happily ever after but I do believe in
survival of the fittest, so if you're looking for a nice fluff novel, this isn't the place to find it, but if
you're looking for a book that gets your blood pumping, welcome, and remember where you keep your nightlights!
In addition to writing, I also am a Senior Editor with Allegory (www.allegoryezine) an online venue for Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror.
In this capacity I get the pleasure
of reading submissions from some very talented folks.
Unfortunately with Allegory, only 8 stories out of all the submissions make it to the final publication,
so sorting through the pile and helping the editor make the final choices can be a bit like herding cats. The decisions are
not always easy but Ty Drago does a great job of balancing the issue with a little of everything. It truly is a labor of love
on all of our parts¸ especially for the zero-dollar paycheck, but the payoff in telling someone they’ve made it
to the next level or they made the final cut is so worth it.
So that's a little glimpse into my crazy life.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my website.
