I write Erotic Romance. Or maybe you prefer to think of it as Romantic Erotica. Either way, I hope you enjoy the stories. In addition to the contemporary erotic romance, I sometimes work in other erotic genres. To date, I've penned a couple of erotic horror stories, one fantasy erotic romance novella, and more to come. I have one novel to my name so far, with plans for many more. I don't have any plans to stop writing short stories, either, as I have a blast with those! My goal is to publish at least one piece every month, so check back often for new goodies!

And, for those of you who are more interested in who I am, here you go. I'm in my early-40s, and happily married to my best friend. We have a dog and no little rug-rats. We live in Southern California, and if you happen by me when I'm writing, you'll most often find me listening to heavy metal and hard rock music, my jams of choice (as I'm sure you can tell with my novel, His Hard Rockin' Princess). You can probably tell from some other stories that I enjoy sports. Even though I've never written a story about it, my sport of choice (to watch, not play!) is ice hockey. Go Anaheim Ducks! I often write, either a draft or an outline, while watching a Ducks game on TV. My favorite football team is the Baltimore Ravens. It's not because of anything on the field, but because of the Edgar Allan Poe connection. Lame, right? I don't care; I love that logo! (And if you read my short "The Odd Costume Party Fiasco" you'll know what my favorite Poe short story is!) 

My activities of choice to stay in shape (or at least try) are running and walking. A few years ago I completed two half-marathons, in addition to a number five- and ten-Ks. I'm a bit, shall we say, less in shape these few years later, but I still try. I also enjoy a nice walk with an audiobook playing in my ear. At the moment, I'm listening to the Harry Potter series. I've read each book several times, but this is my first run through in audio format. I also enjoy romance books, fantasy books, some horror, and anything else that has a great story to tell!

As for my metal music, which is ultra-important in my life, Corey Taylor is one of my favorite singers, though don't ask me to choose between Slipknot and Stone Sour. (I love them both, especially live!) I also love Rob Thomas and Matchbox 20. (Shut up; I know that's so not metal, but I can't help it!) Korn, Rob Zombie, Red, Shinedown, SIXX:AM, Halestorm, Metallica, The Pretty Reckless, Trivium, Machine Head, and Volbeat are a few other bands I absolutely love. (And there are way too many more to list them all, especially the death metal and grindcore bands I love to listen to while I edit!) Feel free to hit me up on Twitter if you want any hard rock and heavy metal recommendations, or simply want to talk music! (Or anything else!)
