About the Author
I'm a wife, mother, author, reader, although not always in that order. I've been an avid reader since a young child. I began writing for personal enjoyment in college, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in accounting. Why I chose a degree that didn't encourage creativity is a mystery to me.
I'm addicted to Reese's peanut butter cups and eat way too many while I write. I have a weird obsession with hoodies and can't write without wearing one. I hate to cook, but love to watch cooking shows.
I'm an unabashed romantic and love swoon-worthy happy endings that give me butterflies for days.
Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, I now reside in a small community outside Houston, Texas with my incredibly supportive, not to mention gorgeous, husband, three amazing school-aged children, a 125-pound lap dog, and a cat that thinks she's queen.

I write adult and young adult Sci/Fi, urban fantasy and paranormal romances.

I love to hear from readers and other authors, so drop me a note and say "Hi!"

Get a glimpse of Dschinnanya - 3
Readers that havent’t yet read part 1 of the “Creatures of Fire Series”, can get a glimpse to see what it is like to be in Dschinnanya. This is an excerpt from “Creatures of Fire: Demons die harder“:

Rawan came and escorted her and Tamiro through town. Dschinnanya had a Christmas feel today. Snowflakes were falling from a grey, dark sky and festive lights and ornaments were adorning the streets. Sariel was quite certain that demons did not celebrate Christmas; they probably only wanted to decorate the city because it looked so pretty.
“Looks like they are running out of ideas,” she said to Tamiro. “The houses just look like the ones I saw on my first day here. Straight out of a Charles Dickens novel.”
“Who knows what the great demon masters think when they create the town? But the snow is a nice touch.” He caught one of the flakes in his hand. “Especially since it isn’t cold.”
“That’s what’s wrong with it!”
“You didn’t notice before?”
“No, I was too distracted by the thought that demons were decorating their city for Christmas.”
“This is the Library of the Centuries.” Rawan interrupted their conversation and indicated a building that looked much too small to house such an important archive.
“That’s the library?” Sariel asked doubtfully. In her mind she had pictured an old, imposing building rather than this small, insignificant house.
“Yes,” Rawan answered and opened the door, letting Sariel and Tamiro enter before him. Stepping into the narrow dark passageway Sariel cast her eyes in order to find a door that might lead her into the archive. 
“Please, allow me to show you the way,” Rawan said, passing her. Leading them through the long corridor, turning into another and yet another, he finally came to a stop in front of a large, wooden portal.
“The Library of the Centuries,” he announced and swung one of the heavy gates open. What she saw then took Sariel’s breath away. The room before them was of enormous proportions with an interior that resembled a star. A big hall sat in the center with rows and rows of shelves leading from it into the distance. From the high ceiling a chandelier cast a bright light, produced not by candles but by light bulbs that looked like a modern version of LED lights.
The room was silent, despite the fact that many of the tables to her right were occupied by demons pouring over old tomes. To her right she spotted a counter and behind that a young demon. I expected an old librarian, Sariel thought when she saw the young man.
