was born in the beautiful backwoods of Kentucky, growing up amidst the dangerous beauty of wildcats and coyotes before eventually my mother moved to the beautiful foothills of Tennessee. I discovered early on in my life that creating stories was my greatest skill. It is something I have nurtured over time and come to appreciate more and more as an adult. I currently live in the beautiful West with a son who views the world in super-hero terms and a dog for whom the word diva is an understatement. I am currently working on my next novel.
