Author of the gripping sword and sorcery Cathell series and a member of the Horror Writers Association. This Steel City native has been writing dark fantasy and horror stories since she was young. She took an instant liking to these genres the moment she read "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" and then a set of "Endless Quest" books. She went on to devour many other fantasy, science fiction, and horror books, eventually graduating to the likes of Stephen King and George R.R. Martin. It was after reading Martin's "A Game of Thrones" that she felt inspired to take a stab at writing her own dark fantasy series.
