Five interesting facts about me...
More About Me..
I live with my husband and four children in Columbus Ohio. When I'm not plotting my next novel you can find me eating mint chocolate chip ice cream or singing off tune. Sadly, I'm addicted to young adult fiction and dark chocolate and refuse to seek help.
I am a member of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. My young adult romance manuscript now titled "Darkest Time" has won several awards, including:
My young adult novels "Painless" won second place in the Columbus Fiction Writer's Ignite the Flame contest and "Crashing Melodies" earned a third place finish in the Indiana Golden Opportunity contest's YA category.
I have a journalism degree from The Ohio State University and more than twenty years professional experience in marketing and public relations. I've been a workshop speaker on marketing and public relations topics for the annual RWA National conference, Central Ohio Fiction Writers meetings and Ohio Meadville Summer Institute. I have also published marketing articles in national publications, including PRSA Tactics and RWA's Romance Writer Report.
