I'm a writer, veteran and mother of five. I live in a 100 year old farmhouse in rural Illinois, where I enjoy coming up with outrageous stories and telling them to whoever will listen, including my chickens.
I come from a family of writers and have a background in theater and broadcasting. I have a lifelong passion for words. My favorite authors include my mother, Kathleen Kirkwood, followed closely by Oscar Wilde and William Shakespeare. I'm also a big fan of God's many masterpieces, especially the Bible, lilacs, and the cacao bean.
I'm currently working on two romantic comedy series:
Calpernica is a romantic comedy series set in a small Midwest town over the first half of the 21st century. Book 1, Crazy in the Heart, was published in May. Book 2, Wilde in the Heart, will be out on April Fool's Day, 2017.
Black Kat is a dark romantic comedy and urban fantasy/fantasy series with superheroes. The prequel, Unlucky Charm, is now out. The next two books will be out in 2017.
