  The McKay girls


    In the early 2000’s I was taking a creative writing class at my local college and I needed something to share with the class—especially after my poetry fell flat! I remember distinctly lying in bed looking up at the glow-in-the-dark stars I had strategically stuck to my ceiling and thinking about what a badass Linda Hamilton had been in Terminator 2! Laugh all you want, but I’m serious. I was thinking, man she really kicked ass… an... Continue reading

           One of the things feeding this imagination of mine is music. When I’m writing I always have music playing, either in the background or right in my ears. In fact, I usually create a playlist that captures the mood of the manuscript I’m working on. While writing Between Death and Destiny, I made a playlist and filled it with broody, sad, and somewhat darker songs (or pieces of... Continue reading

In my early twenties I fell in love with romantic suspense novels, and I fell hard! My addiction led to all the other genres of romance and I couldn’t get enough.
