I am a businesswoman, mom, author, professor, and a major supporter of shopping. I have an undying love for shoes and coffee, which is why I created my main character and alter ego Presley Thurman in by novel, Stilettos & Scoundrels. While she enjoys her day job, my passion is writing, and I spend lot of time writing my fiction or working on her social website for women, Chiczofrenic.com. I currently live in Indiana with my family, and am always writing something, whether it’s for blogs, articles, business journals and books, or ideas for my next novel. I am continuously doing what I love which is writing or drinking coffee.
I have been writing since I was in 2nd grade but I never really finished anything. I would get about half way through and decide it was crap and scrap it. However, when I got to my late 30’s I realized I wasn’t fulfilled and needed to go after some of those dreams that were always on the back of my mind. Stilettos & Scoundrels was the product of that decision.
After a lot of thinking and research I decided to self publish and formed my own publishing company called Five Seas Ink. I now am not only publishing my own books but have a few other authors as well. It’s been very exciting.
Fun, entertaining, imperfect.
“Did you mold Cooper Sands after me?” from a guy I knew. I hadn’t.
I am currently working on the sequel to Stilettos & Scoundrels called Handbags & Hooligans. It will be out in the fall.
