Born in Spanish Harlem, grew up in North Khakilackie. My mother is an awesome, strong, independent woman whom I still adore to this day and who rasied me on her own while working and putting herself through school. She is part of why I am who I am today...though some would question if that were a good thing or a bad one. My husband, whom is my high school sweet heart, is responsible for the other part of why I am who I am. Five years out of high school we got married and eight years after that we had our first baby, who is helping mold me even more.
Growing up, I wanted to be a doctor of some sort. I never would have thought I'd want to be a writer, a fantasy one at that. Being an only child, I've always had quite the imagination and goodness knows I've never had a problem expressing myself. However, publishing my thoughts for the world to read was unimaginable.
I read and write urban fantasy and I'm always working on something new to publish, print or electronically. The paranormal has always been a tickle in the back of my mind, always trying to creep its way to the fore front. I guess it was inevitable I would one day give in, it's in my blood.
A few years ago A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K Hamilton fell in my lap, no longer allowing me to ignore that distant call. From there, I went to her vampire series and the desire to write was born. To create what I wasn't getting from the books I read, LKH or otherwise. I wanted my own world with my own sick and twisted voices yelling in my head. A friend once told me that I write cause I just want to play God...or would that be Goddess?
There ain't much I shy away from in my writing though with my first publication, Goldie's Trios, I did blush everytime someone told me they read it. When people read my work, I want them to feel what I feel...hell, I want them to just plain feel. Smile at the things that made me happy. Cry at the things that were a little more personal and hard to write though I wrote them anyway. Get pissed when my plot doesn't quite go the way they wanted it to or when my characters go what they would consider a little out of character. I want them to shiver when my characters kiss or get close and then, if they want, I want them to tell me about it. About how they feel or just plain curse me out for not making things go their way so I can tell them to get to writing. *wink wink*
When not at my keyboard, I enjoy playing with my bouncing baby boy and helping him discover his new world or I enjoy playing bouncy with his daddy...awe sookie, sookie now! I can also be found chasing down a good cup of joe or a good book...yes, i still and will always read other work. How else will I know what my compitition is. : ) And when time permits...HA! HA!...I crochet with a mean hook, cross stitch, scrapbook and dabble in photography.
