I love words--I love stringing them together to create something new and wonderful. I love reading how others put them together. I love the fact that simple words can create a new world and draw me in. Because I love words so much, it's not a surprise that I've spent the last twenty-something years of my life playing with words either as a writer or as a teacher. In my day job I try and share my love of the written word with my 8th grade students. I've been teaching for years in a near Chicago suburb. I'm a Solstice Shadows and Summer Solstice author who writes epic fantasy, urban paranormal and romance and I'm hard at work stringing together more words!
