I'm the most fortunate girl in the world. I found my soul-mate in James Horton. We do everything together including work, play, and raising our kids.
When we started our author career, James did the writing while I did the covers and editing. Every story, though, was really a combination of our work. We've always brain stormed together, been the sounding board for each other, and made suggestions on how to make our books better.
Then I had the idea for Tajss and a series of books so I decided to write too. Our work habits didn't change though, James' hands are all over my books just as mine were all over his. While we've always worked this way, we've never co-written or credited each other on our books.
The Gladiators of Krix series, set in the Tajss universe, is co-written. The idea for this story started with James and long time readers will recognize the setting.
We've loved writing together and hope you continue to enjoy the stories we're weaving. It's a lot of fun to bounce the story back and forth and we plan to stay a husband and wife writing team going forward.
p.s. we've been together for 10 years but just made it official at Disney in Nov 2020. Look at this ring!! *squee*
I was inspired by Battlestar Galactica's deep exploration of humanity through science fiction themes. I wanted to create the message that love prevails over all the problems facing our current society like hatred, racism, bigotry, and partisanship. It's really touched my heart to see readers responding to this message of love and hope.
A behind the scene secret is that Gershom was a mixed inspiration from Gaius Baltar on Battlestar Galactica and Bill Lumbergh's character of the Boss "Gary Cole" in the movie "Office Space". His first appearance in Dragon's Baby was a nod to "Gary Cole" telling "Ron Livingston" he would have to work that weekend.
My "office" is in a corner of my bedroom as you can see in this photo. It's my little space and I like to keep it comfy and cozy. I like soft, fluffy blankets and pillows are my comfort items. This is also my gaming space. I love my dual monitors and super cute pink mic for voice chat.
A house is made of bricks and beams. A home is made of hopes and dreams.
