Mystery and Suspense… with a touch of romance

Quirky fact I don’t want anyone to know:
My favorite color changes depending upon my mood. Sometimes it’s red, other times green, but most of the time I prefer blue.

I’ve always enjoyed a good story. Some of my earliest memories are the times when I listened to my mother tell something about herself or her family. Although I enjoyed all of her stories, the ones that involved suspense or mystery fascinated me most. Even as a child, I would think about the “what ifs” and was intrigued by inexplicable happenings.

I became an avid reader and this developed into a desire to write. At the age of ten, I scribbled little short stories. I dabbled in poetry in my early teens, as did many of my friends. At age seventeen, I wrote a short YA novel by hand.

After I married, I set aside my wish to be a writer, but the desire never went away. When two different people said to me, “You should write a book,” I knew it was time to get serious about writing. (They probably said it because of my penchant for long narratives.)

I’m not superstitious. I’ll purposely cross a black cat’s path (in fact, I own a black manx) or walk under a ladder. However, I am interested in the folklore and legends behind superstition and ghost sightings. I like solving mysteries and once thought being a private detective would be an interesting job.
