I live in Carroll County, Virginia and was born and raised here. I have also lived in North Carolina and near Myrtle Beach, SC in the past. I now live with my wonderful husband, Richie Matthews, our psychotic cats, Suki and Akira, and our amazing daughter, Bug. 

I finally finished and self-publsihed my first fantasy novel, Child of Galina, on the Kindle. I also work full time as a Community Integration Transition Project Leader at a state run facility in my hometown. I'm in the process of beginning my second novel and hope to have it ready by 2018. In the meantime I'm writing and publishing short stories to the Kindle.
