Born in England, raised in New England and subsequently settling in the South, my background has strongly influenced my eclectic taste in literature, art and life experiences. A passionate advocate for nature and wildlife, I began college as a zoology major but ultimately graduated with a business degree in paralegal studies. My career has run the gambit from law to network administration to marketing and back to law.
My fervent desire to "save the animals" feeds my writing as well as my ability to fall prey to half a dozen canines that rule my life. My home in the North Georgia mountains provides an environment that infuses creative energy and a ten acre playground for my puppies.
I write what I love. The environment. The paranormal. The law.
