Yep. This five-foot-one, blonde dancer writes thrillers.
It wasn't exactly a conscious decision. Since I can remember, I've always liked reading action and murder more than romance. It's not that I can't delve into a different genre here or there, but if I go to the bookstore, nine times out of ten, I'll pick up something with the words "serial killer" or "conspiracy." It's the same with movies. In fact, my DVD collection probably has more Denzel Washington than Denzel Washington's house does. After all, "badass" is one of my favorite non-words.
For a long time, I've kept a humor blog over at Spittin' out Words Like a Llama as a place where I can cut up and joke when I'm not working on a manuscript. However, while writing my latest WIP, I've had several times I've found myself in interesting and sometimes funny situations (such as discussing poisons with my cousin to a point where her husband may or may not have seen her google searches and feared for his life) when I've thought, "Hey! I ought to blog about this!"
So, here I am, on my brand spankin' new writing blog. I still plan to laugh a lot over at the old place, but over here, I hope you'll join me as I post about the craft of writing, books I read, and the publishing industry!
