Author has written 43 stories for Phantom of the Opera.

Hello! If you’ve stumbled onto this page, you probably want to know a little more about me. I am an opera singer by day and an author by night (or rather 4AM, my writing time!). I have written 28 novels so far and had my first novel, a Gothic vampire romance titled "Opera Macabre", published in August of 2011. Since then, I've been working to publish more of my novels. Over the past two years, I published another vampire romance and the first two novels in my series The Angel and Demon Chronicles; the third installment, And Angels Will Fall, will be out this fall.

I am an obsessive Phantom of the Opera fan, but I favor Erik/Christine; sorry to those who love Raoul. He’s just not my kind of guy. I don’t see why anyone would pick him when you could have the passionate love of a musical genius instead.

My other favorites include Buffy the Vampire Slayer/ Angel (I have probably every action figure ever made, and yes, I do realize that is not something to boast about; it just makes me seem crazy!!) I love Sweeney Todd, Rent, Spring Awakening, most musicals in general, opera, of course. I love anything 80s, especially the toys I grew up with as I am an avid collector, (how can anyone look at a Strawberry Shortcake doll and not smile??). My greatest literary influences are the Brontë sisters, Gaston LeRoux’s “Phantom of the Opera”, Susan Kay’s “Phantom”, and I am currently in love with a book called “Written on the Body” by Jeanette Winterson. Music is also one of my addictions, and I love, love, love Dashboard Confessional, Jack’s Mannequin, Stars, The Hush Sound, and Charlotte Martin, to name a few. In my spare time (what little of it there is), I practice singing, scrapbook (I make my own character paper piecings), and I write excessively, mainly Phantom fanfiction and Gothic-esque novels about vampires or angels, whatever mood I’m in.

I am also a trained opera singer and try to perform as much as I can. But at the moment, my most important job is raising three children, and therefore, trying to fit everything I love into the day means I never sit down!!

I am so thrilled to announce that I will be releasing a second collection of my Phantom stories called Manifestations of a Phantom's Soul! Thank you to all the amazing phans who asked and who read and enjoy my stories!

"Opera Macabre"

Count Aiden de Lazarus has grown apathetic to the world around him and the monotony of immortal life. Determined to regain his zest for vampiric pursuits, he chooses a mortal girl and bites her with the intent to drain her. Instead, her intoxicating taste and enchanting beauty stirs feelings he has long buried. Scared by such mortal feelings, he gives her to another vampire as payment for a debt. After eight long years, Bianca is still living a cursed life—singing on stage in Alexi's profitable opera and enduring the bites of the undead as part of his undercover auction when the stage lights dim. Doomed to become Alexi’s vampire bride, her future is bleak. Aiden is horrified to find Bianca still alive and Alexi’s prized possession. Her image has continued to haunt him. Now he must find a way to free her from the life he unwittingly condemned her to and prove that he, unlike the vampires she has known, can be a man worth loving.

"Daydreaming Roses and Fairytale Monsters"

Channing is a vampire who has spent his immortal existence on a mission. He’s never had time for the pleasures of living or to mourn his lost mortality until one fated night when he crosses the path of an innocent mortal girl and falls hopelessly in love. Rose has lived her life sheltered from the rest of the world. With no one but her beloved sisters as allies, she spends her days half lost in fairytales, creating stories of the world she has yet to know and believing in a true love she is destined to feel. When Rose becomes the object of Channing’s heart and obsession, dreams of fairytales become nightmares of monsters. In a love story as dark as it is destined, Channing seeks to prove to Rose that love defines the heart of a monster and can transform any beast into a man.

Captained by one of God’s fallen angels, the Devil’s Galley collects souls lost at sea and brings them to their eternal damnation. Since childhood, Maggie Sloane has been the only one able to see its ghostly image upon the sea, drawn to it as if it is her destiny. Haunted by visions of sin and damnation, one night, she leaps off a cliff and unwittingly ends up saved and a passenger on the ship of the damned on a journey to hell.

The fallen angel Rafe is a reaper for Satan. He cannot explain his unacceptable attraction to a mortal girl, rescuing her from treacherous death and damnation with an uncommon hope to save her soul. As they travel to hell and back with the devil after Maggie's pure soul, Rafe must choose between his loyalty to a necessary task and the girl he was never supposed to love. Will his love be the very key to her eternal damnation?
