I'm a huge fan of anything that goes bump in the night. Why experience the ordinary when you could immerse yourself in the extraordinary? Vampires and werewolves? Yes, they're lovely but I'm truly a fan of everything else, all those other beasties you hardly hear about. That's why I started writing the Godhunter series. I wanted something new, so I invented it myself. I'm also fascinated by different cultures and I study gods not just as research for my books but because they are so interesting. Learn about a people's god and you learn about them. I enjoy bellydancing and painting, anything creative. Writing, sculpting, drawing, airbrush, jewelry making, bookmaking, sewing. When I see something I like, the first thing I ask myself is "Can I make that?"
