The story behind the stories…

Fallbackavailable
I always wanted to be a writer. Then I realized you can only be an under-motivated overachiever for so long. Forty-some years, apparently. I’m not getting any younger, and whining about all the reasons I had not yet written a book was starting to sound pathetic, even to me. It was time to shut up and write.

I thought my first book would be a mystery. Make or Break had other ideas. One day I began a self-assigned writing exercise. It was a couple of scenes, with two characters who had been forming in my mind. The next thing I knew, Seth and Abby decided they were real and took my brain hostage. They refused to leave until I wrote their story.

My second book was also a bit of a surprise. They keep sneaking up on me. I don’t know how they do it. I was challenged by Joshua Guess to write a short story based on his Living With the Dead serial blog and novels. I couldn’t resist, and Monsters Unmasked was born…as a novella, not a short story.

Now, that novella has been completely revised and expanded, with over 50% new material, and transformed into The Dead Survive, Book One in The Dead Survives series, through Limitless Publishing. Book Two is already in progress, and there will be three (or more) in the series.

So, am I a romance writer or a zombie apocalypse writer? Who knows? Who cares? I’m a writer, and that’s good enough for me.

Use the “contact” link to send me a message or to ask a question. I can talk about my books for hours. Ask my husband. And everyone who has crossed my path since I finally stopped making excuses and started writing.

Hope to see you soon… at a book signing near you!
