Nonstop action, humor and horror fill this fast-paced steampunk thriller. Jump on board for the ride of your life.

I always loved reading so it seemed natural to write. I became a reporter where I learned a lot about people, to be a better writer and to edit my own material. I attended writers’ conferences where I honed my novel writing skills. I’ve lived all over the world, worn many hats, been many different people and learned a lot of crazy skills. Horses were always my passion. I worked as a groom and a handler before I became a reporter. I now live in the country with four dogs and my husband. It’s quiet and I can paint and write to my heart’s content.
