Hey, a lot of people are asking me this question, so I thought I would answer it here and on my blog.
How did I become an author and where did the idea for Bloodlines come from?
Wow, now that is question. I didn't know I was going to be an author. I wanted to be an interior designer.
I first started writing when I was in my very early twenties. I had suffered a nervous breakdown, and a result was having panic attacks, as well as fighting agoraphobia. Writing was the only thing that seemed to calm me down and take my mind off all the horrible things that had happened. Never did I think I would become an author, I never dreamed my books would be published. I originally saw it as a way of getting through each day, just something to chill me out. I started by writing silly little stories about what I wanted with my own life. Like a futuristic diary of sorts.
I’ve had a love of horror, fantasy etc since before I can remember, so when I ran out of things to write about my own life – I started writing a little fantasy story. I hid it from everyone for months, then my mum caught me out. At first she thought it was a diary, and turned away so as not to invade my privacy. Then she realised she didn't recognise any of the names on the page.... She read it, told me to continue and out of nowhere Bloodlines came rushing to me.
Music helped to inspire me, and as I wrote, the storyline grew... a trilogy was born.
Keira - She's me in disguise. Ask anyone who knows me. The girl has my attitude and heart.
Lily - she is loosely based on my sister. She has some of her traits, and the tight friendship she has with Keira, I have with my sister.
Eligos - he is the guy I really wish existed. He's my fantasy lover.
The guys (Tyler, Danny, Jake and Lucian) - They aren't based on anyone in particular. Just friends that we (sometimes) all wish we had.

It's official, Revelations will be released on May 15th in both print and ebook formats. I cannot put into words just how excited I am, but also, how sad I am since my story has now ended. This trilogy is everything to me, and no matter how many other books I write in my lifetime, this will always be the story which is closest to my heart. Now! I'm just hoping and praying people will like it!

I've toyed with the idea of changing my covers for a while now. I love the original, but I felt it was time for a change and to spruce things up a little. So, I worked hard on these. I think they are more eye catching. Also, Bloodlines is being re-written. I've definitely grown as a writer, and I wanted to bring it up to date!

As some of you are aware, April is Autism Awareness month. This is something I completely support and I would like to try and help spread awareness as best I can. I also think it's important to try and understand just what Autism is. We have all seen the little pictures floating around Facebook trying to help spread the word. Images such as...
So what is Autism?

I'm currently re-designing this website. It has been rather neglected over the last 12 months. Stay tuned.
