I was born and raised in a small town in upstate South Carolina. I first became a Blogger and later was persuaded to take my writing a step further. My first book, My Paranormal Life, A True Haunting, started as my own private journal of my family dealing with a dark entity. But it didn't stop there, I took it even further and let my experiences help me to co-found a paranormal team and a cryptid team. I enjoy being able to reach out and help others. I have made many new friends in both these fields, which has also led me to help others to have their stories told. I realize firsthand that these people have a very passionate and unique story that needs to be told. In getting these powerful stories out to the public, I hope it will help further research in both of these fields and the individual who shares their story with me may find some closure to their own personal nightmare. I am honored to be able to bring you true stories of the unexplained.

My Story

Hi Guys! Glad to have you here. I'm going to do something that I haven't done before. I'm going to tell you MY story. The story of how I became a writer and the strange background that comes with it.
Pull up a chair, grab your favorite beverage, and let's just dive right in.

My husband Marty and I were living in a home that had a bit of Paranormal Activity. It wasn't anything major. Things would randomly get moved during the night and you would notice it the next morning. (Coffee creamer out of the kitchen and on the coffee table in the living room.) Just annoying little things. Things would go missing and wind up in places that you had already looked. Things you could just blow off and forget about. And that is pretty much what we did. It became normal day to day life. These things would happen randomly, maybe every other month. So we didn't make much of it. Long story short. My son and daughter in law moved in with a new baby. Things got bad really fast. I ended up contacting a paranormal team. After an investigation, one of the co-founders suggested that I keep the activity documented. That is where the Blog was born, https://a-paranormallife.blogspot.com/ After the investigation and two house blessings later, Marty and I ended up joining the team. The co-founders were awesome mentors and we spent the next few years training with and becoming close friends to these guys. I learned a lot from these two men.
After the third and final house blessing at our home. One of the co-founders asked if he could use my Blog to write our story. I felt honored. Brandon Hudgens worked closely with me to get our story told. In the meantime, Marty and I along with my son and daughter in law founded the Carolina Cryptid crew. ( Which turned six years old yesterday.) I had always been interested in writing. But I never attempted to step out on my own. With Brandon and Marty's encouragement, I wrote my first book about the Carolina Cryptid Crew. From there it took off and I was getting hits from every direction to write a book. I am thankful to Brandon for showing me how to work closely with a client and how to get my book out there. He has played a big part in my becoming an author. And Marty has been so encouraging. He is my number one fan and supporter.

Now, I am an Author with a publicist.(Thank you Cari for taking all of the headache work!) It has been slow coming, but I have quite a few books now., and have met some amazing people. So that's my story.

~~UPDATE~~ I know a few of you found out that I was diagnosed with cancer. Yes. Last February we found out that I had a very aggressive form of breast cancer. After just one Chemo treatment (That almost killed me.) I stopped all treatment and had a lumpectomy. My surgery was last July and by the grace of God, I am doing good today. I have to give credit for my life to God. It was him that got me through this with minimal treatment.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my story. And thank you for supporting me. There are new books coming out every couple of months. Watch for a giveaway coming soon to my Facebook page!

Love you guys! Thank you all for your love and support.
