Hi, everyone. I'm new here and thought I would drop a quick hello and  introduce myself. *waves*  I see a lot of familiar faces; some of you know me as a paranormal author, and some as a cover artist. In fact, I saw several of my creations in the Paranormalists Book Covers section.  *blushes*

So, a little bit about me...

I began writing paranormal in the 1980's, shortly after reading several of Anne Rice's vampires novels. Back then I wrote primarily in the "fantasy" genre, you know, wizards, dragons, etc., but magic of any kind has always fascinated me, along with the forever raging battle between good and evil. While I'm still an author of fantasy under another author name, my love for paranormal is first and foremost.  I was mesmerized by how Ms. Rice drew me to her characters, vampires who possessed emotions, battled inner conflicts like mortals, had the ability to love...and more specifically, were portrayed as human beings and not monsters.

I have several paranormal novels published with Purple Sword Publications. Two are stand-alones, and I have a five novel series called The First, wherein two novels have been released. Return to Me and Forever and a Day, are stand-alone vampire novellas, with the main characters in both also making appearances in the final novel of my The First series.

Geeze, talking about myself is boring, so before you all nod off,  I'll say bye for now, but will return with more about my The First series at a later time.

Howdy Dawne! So cool, I had no idea you were an author too. Kudos for being so multitalented! Glad to see you here. :) Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Ditto to what Cate said. I can't imagine the intellect, artist eye needed to make book covers. I'll have to get over to your website and check them out, along with what sounds like a fascinating series. Your pastcard picture didnt post right. That sucks. I wasted an hour last night trying to post a pic on my blog, until I noticed a huge window saying blogger would be down for a few hours for maintenance.

Hi, Cate. Surprise! *grins* Actually, my first submission to a publisher was accompanied by a draft layout of my cover art. The publisher liked it so much that she asked me to do all four in the anthology. That's how I got into the cover art business...the same time I became a published author. Go figure. I absolutely love what I do, too.

And thank you for such a warm welcome.
