Hi there. I’m an indie author who writes about the intersection of real life with the dark, the fantastic, the downright horrible, and the supernatural.
By day, I’m an award-winning journalist living in Ohio, a hobby urban farmer (you can’t beat my beets!), a painter, and a retired roller derby player.
My favorite things—besides books— are Jeni’s ice cream, tiki bars, liquid eyeliner, the 1968 Camaro, the Mighty Boosh, 24-hour horror movie festivals, art by Picasso and Niagara Detroit, rock concerts, and most of all, people who make art, despite adversity, no matter what life throws at them.
My mantras: Life is short, make it count. Read good books. Never turn down a chance to have fun.
If you like photos and want to see pics of the real places that inspired the fictional ones in my novels, check out the Salt Creek Rising Instagram and Flickr pages (coming soon!).
