Have you ever had a coincidence that led you to do something out of the ordinary? Perhaps a sense of déjà vu or a strong feeling you’ve been there or done this before?
My first novel, Dance the Dream Awake, emerged from a personal experience that occurred to me while in Mexico in 1987 during the Harmonic Convergence. While I traveled from Teotihuacan to Oaxaca’s el Tule tree, then into the Yucatan through Chichen Itza and on to the ruins of Coba, the magic came alive, and the story was born. This novel is a paranormal romantic suspense set in the Yucatan, Mexico.
I also write short stories, some of which have been gathered together for the anthology, Valley Fever Where Murder is Contagious, a mystery and suspense anthology set in the San Joaquin Valley of California. My short stories have an element of the dark, with a twist.
Currently, I am finishing up a Sizzling Romance set in Heian Japan, 980AD called Haiku Dance. It is the Romantic past life of two of the two main characters in my first novel, Dance the Dream Awake, and will affect their present life going forward in the novel to come.
I explore dual timelines; past lives and how they effect the present.
Magic and romance are bound to be part of my novels, because they make life fun, and suspense is the added spice to make the stories come alive.
