I have so much to be thankful for but I would not at this place in my life today if not for some pretty remarkable influences that charted my path. The first is my sister Anna, who started the whole fairytale business in the first place. The stories she would read me were a ride that I never got off of. Alice in wonderland is still my favorite escape of all time. Then there is Anne Rice, and my first vampire love Lestat. Growing up and living in New Orleans, what can I say, it is the perfect place to hone the paranormal fantasy mind and this legendary woman and her Vampire Chronicles fueled my imagination.
I began to write but was to self conscious to share my stories so I wrote for me. Time passed, works were put away and life went on, until Hurricane Katrina. The curse to so many was a blessing in disguise for me, though at the time I didn’t think so. She blew into town, destroyed my business and my farm, then moved me north, from Alabama to the Georgia mountains.
That decision changed my life. A box in the top of a closet, an unfinished manuscript, and a whisper in my ear. Finish what you started. That story, started in my twenties, is what you are reading today.
Thank you to my hubby Jeff who is the poster child for unselfishness and encouragement. I love you. To my family and friends who also encouraged me to take up the sword and do what I love. Write, and a special thanks to the girls who help me take care of business; Lisa, Kathie, Theresa, Sue, Gini, and Katie, but most of all I want to thank the readers for turning the pages, falling in love and wanting more. To you I am forever grateful.
Finish what I started? I’ve only just begun.
