Facets of a Muse

Examining the guiding genius of writers everywhere


Bio: A fiction writer since elementary school (many years ago), and NaNoWriMo annual participant for more than a decade, I’ve been published in small press magazines such as “Fighting Chance” and “The Galactic Citizen”. I write adult mystery with a dash of suspense and a touch of romance, mystery with extrasensory elements, and dabble in contemporary and epic fantasy. I’m represented by the fabulous Cynthia Zigmund of Second City Publishing Services. My debut novel, Murder in Plane Sight, has been released by Camel Press.

In real life, I am a technical writer and empty-nester with a wonderful hubby, two one cat (what writer doesn’t have cats??), one dog, five chickens, and more chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits than any garden should have to deal with. My garden, our hobby farm, and Mother Nature’s annual seasons are some of my muses.

Hey, feel free to give me a shout.

  4. I’m a technical writer too. It’s what started my journey into writing fantasy. If I can write a factory control manual, a novel should be a piece of cake, yeh right. πŸ˜‰ I look forward to reading your posts.

  5. I have enjoyed reading your About page and will go in and enjoy some of your posts.
    Your two books sounds intriguing.
    Mystery with extra-sensory elements and mystery with a touch of romance. When is the first coming out?
    Keep well

    • Thanks, Miriam! My agent is shopping my romantic-touched mystery right now, and after we sell that, I’m hoping she’ll agree to represent my other mystery as well, so I don’t have any idea when either will come out. I’ll definitely keep readers posted via my blog πŸ˜€
