My entire life has revolved around mythology, legend, and folklore, ever since my grandmother recited fairy tales and myths in iambic hexameter and my uncle taught me to write. That being said, I am opinionated, cheerful, well read and engaged in the world around me, whenever I stop writing, that is...
I led a group on myth and folklore in high school as well taught about them for Case Western Reserve University’s Off Campus Studies along with classes on History (Medieval and Restoration) Beowulf, Jane Austen, the Brontes and Joseph Campbell's Power of Myth/Hero with a Thousand Faces.
I received a BA from Ohio Wesleyan University (Majors: Humanities/Classics and Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Minor: Theater) My MLS is from the University of Pittsburgh in Rare Books/Manuscripts, Reference, and InfoTech, where part of my final projects was self-censorship in pulp, comic books and popular literature, introducing me to graphic novels and adult themes and concepts.
I began Scribes Unlimited with Paul Kraly and we’ve been writing books, business plans, stories, grants, blogs, articles, scripts and every other type of document ever since.
This includes six non-fiction books. “Exiles of Dal Ryeas” (my first solo novel) was published in 2010. Lately, I’ve been working on Shadows in Light, Book 1 of The Hidden Rims Saga a dark urban fantasy thriller set in the otherworlds.
My housemates include three rescue cats - Mystery, Malkie & Karma - along with writing partner Paul.
