PERSONAL The not so official bio stuff...
Life is a grand adventure. I adore my life, my work, my friends and my family. I'm annoyingly happy.
I have a photography degree and I'm currently working toward my history degree.
In another life I would have been a historian or social anthropologist, but that's the great thing about life--you never know what will happen next. I love doing and trying new things and am always open to new ideas and opportunities. I own a business, am a photographer, a horrific cook, and a fiction author with over 70 published titles including futuristic, paranormal, historical, contemporary, fantasy and dark paranormal. I co-hosted a radio show for three years and am a journalist for a paranormal magazine.
I love to travel. My goal is to someday visit every country on the planet. I've been to almost all the US states, Belize where I climbed the Mayan Xunantunich Temple near the Guatemala border, Cayman Islands where I played with wild sting rays, Honduras, Mexico... I respect and love to learn about other cultures. And, I like to hear people's stories. (so fill out those FB bios ;) )
I have a slight pasta addiction. Love RED wine and margaritas. I'm a huge animal lover (just ask my spoiled dogs/cats). I prefer conversation to loud clubs. I love movies, especially 'B' Horror movies, action films and comedies. Generally, not a fan of reality television.
Some of the things I still want to try... I'd love to be a part of a paranormal investigation (DONE! May 2010), work on a nonfiction project, work on a haunted places book, publish a photography book, travel the world, work on a horror movie (preferably as a zombie or the screaming chick who gets it in the beginning credits, LOL), have my own show (just don't ask me what about).
