What can I say – I’m one part crazy and one part professional writer.
I’ve been a journalist since 1999, an editor, graphic designer, critique partner for other writers, and book reviewer. I also teach the devious art of telling lies for money to various impressionable young people (i.e. I teach fiction craft classes for teens and adults).
Because I believe the words “FREE TIME” refer to a parallel universe of which I am banned from, I also am a graphic artist, a writing instructor, a member (faculty) of the SCBWI, and the driver of a 16-ton school bus. Apparently I tweet my random thoughts @sharkprose and yup – I am on Facebook, because even my BFF’s dog is. I can’t rank below a dog . . . seriously, I need more friends. The dog is killing me.
I am also the author of UNDERTOW, a bestselling dark, Urban Fantasy YA, which follows 17-year-old Eila Walker, last in a brutal race of humans and her unlikely allies, including a soulless boy who becomes her beloved bodyguard. The second book in the series is STORMFRONT launched the summer of 2014, followed by CRUEL SUMMER in 2015, TRUE NORTH in 2016, and Last Light in late summer, 2017. Fanfiction can be found on WattPad.
I live on Cape Cod with my two children and husband, weird looking dog, and a cage-defiant lovebird that sleeps in a miniature tent. This is Cape Cod – even the animals are nuts.
I also legitimately squeal when I get mail from my readers, so feel free to drop me a note the old fashioned way if you like: Wicked Whale Publishing, PO Box 264, Sagamore Beach MA 02562
