Greetings and Salutations! I’m tickled to be hanging out with fellow paranormal romance readers as paranormal was my gateway into romance. I’d been a horror and thriller reader for a long time, and I when I discovered that other folks thought monsters were kind of sexy as well, I was hooked! All of my books, whether contemporary, paranormal, or horror, are all inspired by my love of music. I’m a huge metal fan, but I’m also a former dancer and so I love all kinds of tunes. I’m a pink-haired, tattooed, giantess that can be heard using her teacher voice across the street and often making corny jokes and inappropriate innuendo. I can’t wait to chat and hear about all of your favorites.
Favorite Books that I Wrote:
I’m proud of Healer, my latest release, because it’s the first book I ever wrote and I was able to apply all I’ve learned over the past 11 years to make it something I think is pretty cool! Haunted was my first self-published book and it launched this whole authory gig for me. I’ve had readers tell me they loved the characters so much they wished they could hang out with them in real life, and that’s something to be proud of. And Hurricane Reese, my first traditionally published book, won the Kathryn Hayes “When Sparks Fly” contest’s Best Contemporary Novel for 2019 and I’m insanely proud of the pitch that sold the book: “An octogenarian with wayward balls plays accidental cupid to the gay odd couple.”
Favorite Books by People who Aren’t Me.
The Witching Hour by Anne Rice is my all-time favorite. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris hooked me on paranormal romance and started one of my favorite series. Then The Stars Fall by Brandon Witt was the first #ownvoices gay romance I ever read and that book hit me in all the feels. Annabeth Albert’s Out of Uniform series, especially At Attention hits all the feels for me. Night Play by Sherrilyn Kenyon is my favorite of the Dark-hunter books, which is another series I go back to time and time again.
