About the Author
I'm a mom by day and a storyteller by night. Or in whatever free time I can get, actually. I've been writing stories ever since I was a little girl. I scribbled them in notebooks. I wrote them on old clunky computers with pixelated screens. I never felt my English teachers gave enough time for writing assignments. When a book or TV show didn't go the way I thought it should, I would write my own version to fix it. There's a certain magic in being able to write the world the way you want it to be.
My other interests include spicy food, Earl Grey tea, thunderstorms, and animals. That's my dog, Bento, in the picture. He's wondering why he has to hold still for a picture. I also have a crazy black cat. My four-year-old daughter named him: "Cat Noir." He likes to sit on my papers and notebooks while I'm writing. I'm certain that he considers himself to be my personal assistant.
I have a husband and three kids who love to hear the stories I come up with. They offer lots of interesting suggestions. Nobody can beat a five-year-old at creativity. And my nine-year-old has a real penchant for gruesome humor.
Why do I write books about werewolves and zombies? Because monster books are awesome! Who doesn't love to sit around a campfire roasting marshmallows and telling stories about beasts that lurk in the dark? But the real motivation came during a trip to the bookstore with my son. We were searching the shelves for a book at his reading level that he was excited about and couldn't find a single one. The solution was obvious, I had to write one! Thus, Werewolf Max and the Midnight Zombies was born.
