Author has written 7 stories for Hunger Games, Warrior, 2011, and Drop, 2014.

I'm way too old for this kind of thing. Three teenage kids, husband, and a beef cattle farm in Southwest VA. Also, we sell bull semen. I KID YOU NOT. You can call me up and I will sell you bovine spunk, if that's what you want. (Luckily for me, I'm not the one who has to collect the stuff.)

Doesn't matter. I'm writing because I can't not. Reviews enthusiastically welcomed. PM me and say hi if you like. I blog about writing at my new website, .

My Warrior fic, Fight or Flight, is now in the process of being revamped and changed into an original novel, and I'm working on getting that published. You heard it here first! You know I love me some Conlon boys, but I also think that most of the issues of the film are universal ones, and would still be interesting in a separate setting. Unfortunately, I don't have the time right now to update my Hunger Games fic, and so I am reluctantly declaring it on hiatus for the moment.

I also blog about perfume and my family at . Stop by sometime and say hello, I'd love to see you!
