He mumbled in his fitful sleep, finally waking with a jerk. Using his legs, he pushed himself back against the wooden headboard where he now sat, sweat dripping down his forehead, panting. His heart thundered as his eyes feverishly scanned the room, first passing and then whipping back to the large form silhouetted in the hall. In disbelief, he blinked rapidly trying to clear his vision. Afraid to move his eyes from the doorway, he reached out with his left hand, and groped the nightstand for his glasses. Growling now, the huge creature filled the entire doorway, and with an earsplitting roar, dipped his head to enter and stepped inside the small room.  The glasses, finally located and now clutched in his hand, slipped from his fingers and clattered to the floor. His body trembled as a terror-filled scream rose from his throat and filled the air.

I grew up in a small northern Minnesotan town married my high school sweetheart, had two beautiful children and as soon as we could we moved to a warmer climate. I have worked with my husband building and decorating custom homes for years.

After loving every kind of vampire book, movie and series since I was a child, I decided that I wanted to know more. I can write a book I thought, how hard can that be? wasn't as easy as I thought, but I stuck to it, and finished my first book Royal Blood Chronicles Book One in August 2009. I now have six books in the series and am about to release book two of my new series Phantom Lives.  

My parents always told me that I could do anything that I wanted, work hard, and do it right. I believe that, and live that every day.

I started writing this new vampire series for teens and their moms because I wanted something different to read. I was tired of all the modern versions of vampire books, there had to be more to these long lived beings. Where had they been, what had they seen? I wanted, no I NEEDED to know more, so Royal Blood Chronicles was born!  As in Royal Blood Chronicles, Phantom Lives features strong female characters and action and adventure mixed with romance, friendship and a historical backdrop. I hope you enjoy them.
