I'm a paranormal fiction author who was born and raised in the foothills of Appalachia. I'm eclectic, having diverse interests which shows in my writing. I have a degree in Sociology in which my studies focused on crime and deviant behavior and race and gender relations in post-grad. I love to travel, and my varied experiences around the world are woven into my stories. I love reading, music and learning. I currently reside in the Chicago metro area with my Goddess-like daughter. As Emma would say, variety is the spice of life, but too much spice gives me heartburn.

Productive Day


I’ve managed to accomplish a lot today.

I’ve gotten the kitchen almost finished with the way I want it. The last thing to do is clean the stove top and finally start using it.

I’ve done a lot of laundry, and there’s still no end in sight. My daughter and I definitely have too many clothes. I think a donation to a local shelter is in our future.

I cooked a double lunch – spaghetti for my daughter and brown beans with a ham hock for me. Dinner is going to be some type of lamb dish with rice.

Finally before stopping for the day, I’m going to finish the living room and FINALLY get my main altar set up. Once that’s done, let the games begin. 😉

Blessed Sunday, y’all!

Lovely Evening


Wow, I took a nap and woke up to everything covered in snow! Such is life in this area.

It’s a perfect evening to listen to music, enjoy some merlot, and browse through the absolutely AWESOME employee discount plans with LOTS of merchants that I now get with my new job. All of the discounts are excellent, however the most exciting to me is the discounts on buying new cars. I even saw that there are employee discounts on buying Audis. Now, I would not be able to afford a new Audi even with the employee discount. But with the employee discounts on used Audis, absolutely! I’m thinking that’s going to happen later this year.

Goddess bless 2020!
