Before starting my writing career I was a stay-at-home-mom for over ten years to four amazing kids – two boys, two girls – and the wife of an Air Force pilot. My family moved around quite a bit during our eleven years of being active duty Air Force, and I’ve gotten to experience many different parts of the country and it isn’t uncommon to find some of the places I’ve lived as the setting for my books. We’ve lived in Georgia (When We Were Human), Mississippi, South Carolina (The College of Charleston Series), California (Broken World), and Oklahoma, but have recently returned to the Dayton, Ohio area. Military life has had its up and downs, but I’ve made some pretty incredible friends along the way who have been amazingly supportive of my writing. I love zombies (especially The Walking Dead), Coffee, Wine, and Daryl Dixon. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my books and I look forward to putting a lot more out there for you to enjoy!
