The third book in my Huntress Moon series is out this week, and I thought I’d take a break from my usual posts and interviews about the crime and suspense aspects of the series and talk a little about the love story. (What???) Yes, I know. I may have written some paranormal mystery/romance, but nobody… Read More
I’m the Thriller Award-winning and Bram Stoker and
Anthony Award-nominated author of the Amazon bestselling
crime and supernatural thrillers The Harrowing,
The Price, Book of Shadows, The Unseen,
The Space Between, and the new Thriller Award-
nominated Huntress/FBI thriller series: Huntress
Moon, Blood Moon, Cold Moon. The New
York Times Book
Review has called me “a daughter of Mary
Shelley” and my novels “some of the most
original and freshly unnerving work in the genre.”
I’m a California native and a graduate of U.C.
Berkeley, where I majored in theater and minored in
everything that Berkeley has a reputation for. After college
I moved to Los Angeles, where I’ve made an interesting
living doing novel adaptations and selling original thriller
scripts to various Hollywood studios.
In my stories I like to cross the possibility of the
supernatural with very real life explanations for any
strangeness going on, and base the action squarely in fact.
THE UNSEEN is based on real paranormal research
conducted at the Duke University parapsychology lab, and
BOOK OF SHADOWS teams a Boston homicide detective and
a practicing Salem witch in a race to solve what may be a
Satanic killing. THE SPACE BETWEEN, is an edgy
supernatural YA about a troubled high school girl who is
having dreams of a terrible massacre at her school, and
becomes convinced that she can prevent the shooting if she
can unravel the dream.
I also have written paranormal romance (THE SHIFTERS,
KEEPER OF THE SHADOWS) and the non-fiction workbooks
SCREENWRITING TRICKS FOR AUTHORS and WRITING
LOVE, based on my internationally acclaimed workshops
I live in Los Angeles and in Scotland, with Scottish crime
author Craig Robertson.
When I’m not writing I dance: jazz, ballet, salsa,
Lindy, swing — I do it all, every chance I get.

The Heroine as Hero
Once upon a time, heroes had to be perfect — beautiful men riding in on beautiful white horses to save the day. Women readers all but demanded it. And then in 1847 along came Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre. Suddenly, readers learned the beauty of a flawed man, a man who needed a good woman to… Read More
