I am a mother, wife and attorney from Long Island, New York. I love being a wife and mother...but an attorney?What was I thinking going to law school?!? It truly is my one regret. I wish I'd spent all that time and energy writing books instead of legal briefs and memoranda of law.
However, I've discovered that it's never too late to pursue your life's passion and true calling. I've been having fun making up for lost time. So far, I've written five full-length novels. My first book, "Mother," is a young adult novel about a volatile mother/daughter relationship. It's an emotional roller-coaster ride that explores the self-destructive behaviors of a dysfunctional single-parent family.
My "Hillary" trilogy is a lot darker. It is a deeply disturbing series that contains intense scenes of graphic violence, gore and subject matter that many find offensive. Please heed my warnings!
I have two short stories, "Christmas Shopping," and "Crazy Old Lady," (which appears in the extreme horror anthology called "Carnage") and a novella entitled "Omerion."
I am delighted to announce that I have just completed my first chick lit novel, which will be released on Valentine's Day. Next up, a long overdue horror novel called "Expulsion" about an abortion gone very wrong. This year, I also intend to release another horror novella, entitled "Love You to Pieces" and a young adult novel about bullying.
No matter what the genre, I think it's important for everything I write to leave a lasting impression upon readers. I strive to create memorable characters combined with deep and thought-provoking storylines.
But mostly, I have to admit, I really enjoy horrifying people. I want to shock and scare them and put all sorts of sick, twisted images in their minds. I want to evoke strong feelings of sadness, hatred, terror, disgust and repulsion. Once in a while, I might even bring a smile to someone's face. Mostly, though, I just prefer to horrify people. And I think I do a pretty good job at it if I dare say so myself.
If you've ever considered writing a book then I urge you to do so, without fear of failure, without fear of what others may think, without any fears whatsoever except the fear of not fulfilling your goals. Just do it. Live your dreams and don't let anyone ever hold you back.
Now go. While you still can.... :)

Carnage: Extreme Horror
For hardcore fans of horror and gore, this anthology contains four depraved and disturbing stories by Kyle M. Scott, Stuart Keane, Jack Rollins and Angel Gelique. Be warned, the material in this book is likely to frighten and offend! With a foreword written by the master of gore, Matt Shaw, you won't want to miss it!
Get your copy here:
“It is a place of unrelenting misery and interminable pain and sorrow. It a place of lost hope, a dismal abyss where remorse is candy, and tears, nectar, to unforgiving monstrosities with endless appetites.”
In life, Samuel Rylandt was a serial rapist and murderer who callously committed heinous acts with no regard whatsoever for the women he victimized. In death, however, he will suffer the consequences of his depravity as his soul undergoes a startling corporeal transformation and he is thrown to Hell (Omerion) to complete three horrific phases of moral reconstruction.
Samuel’s notions of the underworld are broadened as he learns that “Hell” is actually an elaborate civilization where the damned agonizingly learn the virtues that evaded them in life.
'Twas a few nights before Christmas
And all through the mall,
The man followed Jilly
Lean, blonde and tall.
Jilly tried to evade him
She withdrew from his sight,
But the blonde man was persistent
Stalking her that fateful night.
He followed Jilly to her car
The poor teen was so afraid,
She'd tried her best to be careful
Now a price had to be paid.
The unthinkable then happened
As blood spilled everywhere,
Christmas shopping can be murder
So you had better beware.
Always make the best choices
You know wrong from right,
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good fright....
