About the Author

Having spent my youth in the Midwest, I currently reside in South Carolina. On my journey to a business degree, I began to take writing more seriously while attending South Dakota State University. I started writing Keller’s Den, my first published novel. While living in Brookings, South Dakota I learned that just because a state starts with the word “south” doesn’t mean it’s going to be warm.

The intriguing storyline and subplots in Keller’s Den keep the book moving along at a page-turning pace. My second novel, A Passage to Home, is a longer read and an incredible story about tragedy, perseverance, triumph, and miracles. Shortly thereafter, I heard about an underground market that involved selling human organs for profit, giving life to my third book, Body Parts, an amazing story about the misgivings of innocent victims who are kidnapped for their organs. My fourth book Black Widows, is three horrific ghost stories about murdered wives who seek revenge from the grave and beyond.

Interesting trivia: There is a host of notable authors in my ancestry which include Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Geoffrey Chaucer, O Henry, Stephen Crane, Laura Ingalls Wilder, William Faulkner, and Truman Capote.

Also, my 9th Great Grandfather, John Alden, straight down the ancestry line, was a leader on the Mayflower along with Captain Miles Standish, 30 crew members and 102 passengers. Alden was said to have been one of the first to set foot on Plymouth Rock and was influential in the creation of Thanksgiving along with the Wampanoag Indians. Pretty cool! On each Thanksgiving I thank my 9th Great Grandfather for helping create such a wonderful event that has stood the test of time in our nation’s history.
