I write sci-fi thrillers best described as cyberpunk. I have a bachelor’s degree in biology from UT Dallas, worked as technical editor for a peer reviewed international psychiatric journal, and published various forms of nonfiction before I caught the fiction bug. For more about how I ended up writing edgy science fiction, check out this article, “From Housewife to Cyberpunk: My Writing Journey.”
You should also know that I practically live on a farm. When I’m not researching neural implants or finding story/character/voice issues in mystery manuscripts, I relax with beautiful views and meals made from our farm-fresh eggs. Sometimes we even find strange, scientific ways to entertain ourselves. Yep, my life is like a page out of Southern Living magazine, with an eerie sci-fi twist.
Okay, who am I kidding? With two school-aged kids, five acres, six chickens, two dogs, a cat, a rabbit, a donkey, and two goats…my husband Brad and I are busy. Sometimes we relax with the view, but I rarely set out a country-style spread with fresh eggs and home-grown veggies and such. My mind itself is a scrambled egg half the time.
Fortunately, I’m blessed with the most incredible group of friends and family a girl could ever want. Also, I drink lots and lots of strong coffee. Because everything becomes more clear and focused after coffee.
