Writer Biography

I moved to England from California several years ago to be with my partner. My MA in English Composition and Literature has allowed me to write and publish several stories for anthologies, as well as numerous magazine and on-line articles. I write romance, paranormal and erotic fiction. Currently, I’m a consulting editor for Bold Strokes Books, the foremost publisher of LGBTQ literature in the world, as well as a free-lance journalist and development editor. I taught Women Authors and Women’s Studies at California State University, San Bernardino and plan on working on my Ph.D. at Nottingham Trent University.
I specialize in development editing, taking manuscripts with promise but issues to the point of being publishable, in all genres.
