I was born in Florida but raised in New Jersey where I still reside with my husband, our two sons and two dogs. For more than twenty years I have worked with children as both a teacher and an aide. Now, a stay a home mom, I care for my family and take time to enjoy other interests such as traveling, writing, art and photography. My love for horror began when I was young, I loved watching movies and reading books for the "scare" factor and because of this my imagination combined with my surroundings inspired me to write scary stories of my own. This is my first book in what I hope will be a series of short stories that will make your imagination run wild. This has been an amazing experience and as I balance life with my house full of boys, (yes, the dogs are male too!), I will continue to exercise my creativity and write about my imaginings, so keep an eye out...there will be more to come.
