Five Things You Would Probably Never Guess About Me


Writers are quirky characters, aren’t they? When we picture them, don’t we imagine them in a cloak of darkness, hunched over a computer typing frantically away? Well, I assure you although I do have some eccentricities, it’s not that bad.

There are a few things that most people don’t know about me:

1. I stream Law & Order: SVU in the background when I write. It gets lonely being at home working all the time, so I stream L&O because the voices kind of make me feel like I’m not alone. I also write thrillers, so it helps me with my detective talk.

2. I’m obsessed with dinosaurs. I have a large ornament of a raptor in my living room. It’s about the size of a dog. I also have salt & pepper shakers and a cookie jar.

3. I have a pet leopard gecko. He’s super cute but nowhere near as photogenic as the ones I see online all the time. He likes to spend time in his warm cave, but he will watch TV with us as well.

4. I am enamored with the life of a vampire, mostly because being immortal would help me achieve my bucket list.

5. I was an amateur boxer for over five years. I’ve been in the ring with 200 lb men dodging punches and kicks. Kickboxing is one of my most favorite workouts and the fact that I have been able to go toe to toe with men brings me a lot of pride.

There's an evil queen, a demented father, some amateur boxing and a trailer park story. Even a silver fox makes an appearance. Why wouldn't that entice you?

If you are looking for something different from the rest of the books out there, something that might make you question your sanity then you will love this book.

Read an excerpt:

You’re familiar with the story of Snow White and the Evil Queen. Me too. It’s an interesting story if you look at it closely-- interesting and really fucking disturbing. It’s the story of a little girl who lost her father and was raised by a woman that hated her from the start. She hated the girl so much that she hired a man to chase her down and bring back her heart—even though she was only really her stepmother. The Queen had no real reason to hate the girl, right? She hated her because she was the “fairest of them all” …and she was no longer. That porcelain skin, that jet-black hair, blood red lips…okay, okay maybe I would hate her too. Joking aside, the girl just wanted to be loved. The Queen was all that Snow White had left in the world, but instead, she was loathed by her--wanting all the attention and power that she had.

I get it. I get it more than you think. The Evil Queen is real and we all have someone like that in our lives. Someone who would rather see us dead than to see us with happiness in our lives. Shockingly enough, that person happened to be a family member for me. I’m not saying that she sent someone after me to bring back my heart, but I assure you, she definitely thought about it. Did my shoulder pop out accidentally as a toddler? Who’s to say with no witnesses around.

WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK AWESOME?

Seriously! The comedic and sassy perspective will make you see things differently, and you may even find yourself laughing out loud. It's a good story and one that I truly believe needs to be told. Period.

It’s dark, raw and takes you to a door that keeps all my innermost secrets. I hope that the book makes you laugh, makes you cry, and inspires you to be the best version of yourself.

  5. SVU is the one Law & Order I just can't watch. It's too disturbing...and too often child victims. Too intense for me!
