I am a fan fiction writer in transition to becoming a published author. My writing career started with the Smallville fandom in 2007 and progressed to Gossip Girl and finally The Vampire Diaries.
I have been daydreaming stories in my head since I was a small child. My first attempts at storytelling were acted out with my large collection of barbie dolls. I was often assisted by my sometimes unwilling younger sister. Every playtime session had to start with a setting and plot. We managed to explore everything from ancient Greece to harem life to revolutionary France. Later on I graduated to pounding away on a Tandy computer. My first book was an epic tale about the rise and fall of a royal dynasty in a fantasy world.
My obsession with the romance genre started when my mother introducing me to the works of Barbara Cartland. I loved how they always explored different historical periods and themes. AS I got older, I quickly outgrew their formulaic patterns and moved on to Bertrice Small, Victoria Holt, Judith Krantz, Georgette Heyer and Marion Chesney.
From my earliest days, I have always had a passion for the villainous characters in literature, television and film. I would rather read about a vampire, mafia kingpin or dissolute rake than a hero with a heart of gold. There is something about these characters, the exploration of the darkness juxtaposed against the light of the heroines that inspires me.
When I am not working on my craft or scribbling about my fantasy worlds you can find me buried in a book or glued to a television show.
