“You don’t look like an urban fantasy writer…I always thought that stuff was dark and creepy.” This is the note I got from a fellow writer who I connected with on Facebook. He went on to ask if I had a darker side hidden beneath the neat white shirt.

I had to laugh, because he’s right. I’m blessed/cursed with the look of a sweet innocent thing. But really, I assure you, I DEFINITELY have a dark side. Don’t we all, to some extent or another? Yes, behind the neat, clean shirt and hair lurks a diabolic mind that likes vampires and demons just as much as happy days and fluffy clouds. Stephen King warped my brain at an early age, and I’m forever grateful. Though, in truth, the urban fantasy I write tends toward more humorous and less creepy . Some of my other works in progress might be better classified as magical realism.

Maybe my website photo is more suited to my interest in travel writing. Next time I’ll wear black clothes and carry a scythe.
