BIO

Writing has been my passion since childhood. At the age of 16 I began writing my young adult fiction series Changing Scenes and several inspirational romance novels. Living through these characters seemed the only safe way for a shy girl like me to experiment with the choices and actions that came with life.

In college I changed my major three times, from Music to Teaching to English Literature. It was during this time I began writing skits, songs, and full-length plays for my home church, Canby New Life Foursquare. This afforded me the opportunity to direct, act, and even sing in front of an audience. It became one of the best experiences of my life.

In my late 20s, my friends introduced me to the wonderful realm of science fiction and fantasy through video games. In 1999 I created the website, The Mintfield, and posted both my original fiction and fan-fiction to the web. I also began submitting my writing to online publishing sites specializing in fan-fiction such as RPGamer [their fanfiction section is no more, Fanfiction.net, RPGfan, and IcyBrian.

In 2002, I dedicated The Mintfield entirely to my novellas, short stories, and poems written based on the characters and worlds I discovered through these games. One of my favorites of these fan-fiction novellas is a medieval/steampunk romance titled Terra, which has been re-released as Serra in the compendium Soul of the Mago. Names and places have been changed due to copyrights. The other, my military/sci-fi series Bookworms and Booya! is in the process of being re-written, also due to copyrights.

For my original fiction I created Angel Breath Books. In 2008, with my foray into the National Novel Writing Month and introduction to CreateSpace print-on-demand publishing, ABB blossomed into a small publishing company specializing in works of fantasy and romance. Its debut novel was my paranormal fantasy, To Save a Soul. Now ABB focuses on stories demonstrating the importance of honor, respect, and communication in relationships.

Our characters have a life of their own. In fact, many tread a path we would not dare. In that respect we all have something to learn from their waiting destiny, and it is that destiny ABB strives to tell. Janine, Marcus, the unnamed villain… they all have something to teach about the darker side of destiny.

Blessings

Special thanks to my Muse, God the Author. Your pushes and suggestions have helped me get to the story that might not have been told, the chapter that might not have been written, and the character that might never have been born.
