Me at 5
I spend my days plotting my escape. I live with 2 teenagers, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a husband. That should explain the whiskey and why I like killing people. However, I have no desire to spend time in the Penal System, so I keep my murderous sprees to the pages of my book.
I use my BS in Forensic Chemistry and my experience in the Coast Guard as a Search and Rescue/Law Enforcement Petty Officer to work writing Crime Fiction.
My books are dark, sexy, edgy mashups of CSI, Motive, and Criminal Minds. They are not cozy mysteries and not for the faint of heart.
My Italian familigia is loud and fun. You come to my house you'll mangia too much, beve too much, and laugh till you pee your pants.
Dark Force Press is my publishing company.
I created it after I decided I didn't want to go with a publisher who wanted me to make certain changes to my story I wasn't ready to make. So, I ventured out on my own and created DFP.
I had a businesses before I had my children, starting another one wasn't a big deal. It's a lot of work. I'm responsible for everything when it comes to publishing my books. Which is often a double edged sword.
But my advice to anyone wanting to self publish, go for it. You will need to research your genre, how you are going to market your books, and create a website. That is just a few of the things you will need to do.
However, in the end, it will be worth it.
