I’ve wanted to be a writer since grade school, but followed the standard advice given to new writers of ‘Keep your day job.’ I decided that my day job should be psychology. After all, understanding the secrets of the human mind seemed complementary to the desire to write realistic characters. When the man on the street has a sign saying “Meat, eggs and dairy hold the spells in,” I am the one who walks up to ask more. My day job took over for many years as I worked on my doctorate in psychology, but now I am back to writing with a vengeance. My preferred genres are supernatural, science fiction and fantasy. One of my strengths is building characters with mental illness.
In addition to my writing, I also have edited a variety of genres from scientific papers to smut. I teach non-fiction writing at the university level.
