Hi there! I'm an author who gets ideas by exploring historical places, reading old documents/records, (such as letters, newspapers, marriage certificates, diaries, journals, documentaries-well, you get the idea), visiting cemeteries and historical churches, finding unique antique gadgets that never gained popularity with the public. There's no better way to explore a countryside, village or city than while gripping the handlebars of a bicycle, in my opinion.
(That's me in the picture with my daughter, Audrey, in case you're wondering!)
I have two Bachelor's degrees: One in Education with a concentration in English and the other in Accounting. Too, I have a Master's of Science degree in Instructional Design and Technology.
My love is writing romance, and being able to write the stories that are begging to be told! My series, called The Lumière Chronicles, starts out in an alternate steampunk setting that gets destroyed and ends up being a dystopian steampunk world. In the dystopian world, I will pen novels for adults that might be too sensual for young adults, and YA novels that will be perfect for both young adults and adults.
