About Me

I’ve published a few horror, sci-fi, and literary pieces and have three finished novels in various stages of querying and revision. My current work-in-progress is about a nerdy, browbeaten chemist who, while trying to get anonymous revenge on his bully, accidentally murders his boss.

I have the pleasure of sharing my writing journey with an extraordinary group of women. We call ourselves The Little Red Writing Hoods. Mary is a Nebula winner and fencer who adores cats. Laura hails from Texas and writes for CoolCleveland. Cyndi writes us all to shame, with seven published books to her credit. Our newest member, Rebecca, is the features editor for Parhelion Literary Magazine and blogs at Rust Belt Girl. What about me? I wear black, always. People need stability in life, especially writers. And black goes with everything.

Any poor decision I make can be handily blamed on having my head cut open in 2018. As skilled as neurosurgeons are, once you shift that stuff around, you’re not the same. Not really. Sometimes I write about my debacles, but mostly I wrap them in fiction and change critical pieces of information.
