Six years ago I discovered something about myself. I discovered that I really enjoy writing. Creating characters and dreaming up scenarios and challenges to put them through their paces. I’ve always had an active imagination, dreaming up entire scenarios before I even opened my mouth to make a statement, dreaming up imaginative people and events just for the fun of it, living out the life of a superhero in my head. I do it because it’s fun, and it’s how my brain works. There is no controlling it so I go along for the ride. Wheeee.
It was a natural transition to putting words on paper. The breakthrough came when I wrote a four-part, short story based on the BBC Network series, Torchwood, a world created by Russell T. Davies as a spin-off from the Doctor Who franchise that he was piloting at the time. Like many Torchwood fans, I was upset with losing a dear character, Ianto Jones, so I rewrote the ending of the third series of the show to bring the character back (hey, lots of people did the very same thing). That developed into the short story, Past, Present, and Future, which I self-published, or submitted if you will, on a site that houses fanfiction of this nature, A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive. This brings me to where I am today. I published Flashback to the Dragon in 2012 through Abbott Press. I published Flashback to the Mosquito in 2014 through CreateSpace, an Amazon.com Company. I’m working on the third and final Flashback novel, Flashback to Baker Lake.
I used to live in a small village near a larger city in Michigan with my wonderful husband and beautiful daughter (who is tons more mature than I’ll ever be). I now live in Venice, Florida, with aforementioned husband and daughter, and two cats–Danny Boy and Spooky. Both are rescues and both of them think they run the household.. Life is good.
