Hello Everyone,

First, I would like to thank Janet for giving me this opportunity to introduce my debut novel, Net Switch, to you. It will be published just in time for the holiday season. Aren’t stocking stuffers great?

Now here’s a bit of ‘information dump’ about me.

I was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. After I graduated Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School, I worked full-time while bartending and going to college part-time. As the years past, I thought I’d never finish college, but I finally graduated from DePaul University in Chicago, IL with a Bachelor of Arts in English.

During my last trimester in college I came up with an idea for a novel. I sat down and wrote it within a matter of a few weeks…but it wasn’t an entire book, more like the core of it. It was a romance novel, and after trying to refine it, I decided to put it in a drawer and let it sleep. I continued to write, learn the craft and read plenty of books.

In 2008, I began writing poetry, and recently published a poetry e-book, Sipping a Mix of Verse, which is a collection of poetry arranged by traditional forms and free verse.

Here’s a book trailer I created for it: Sipping A Mix of Verse

I entered the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) the same year I began writing poetry and completed a novel in a month. I was ecstatic, but I had no plans to publish it until someone read my novel. Positive feedback is so underrated. After I began cleaning it up, I hired an editor and now it’s going to print.

Book Trailer for Net Switch

My debut novel, Net Switch, will be available in December 2011. It’s a dark, psychological suspense.

“In the dead of winter, Sydney Hayes finds herself in an internet chat room in hopes of expelling her loneliness. Enchanted by a stranger, she soon finds herself caught up in an affair that spills over into her everyday life. Within a short period of time, the stranger captures her mind, her body and eventually her heart, but excitement turns to terror and Sydney must abandon the life she built in Chicago and assume a new identity.

A fragile woman in a new city, Sydney tries to put it all behind her as she makes a fresh start in Seattle, but her troubles follow her and she is running out of time. Feeling as though she has no other choice, Sydney is determined to destroy him before he destroys her—unaware that her journal holds the key.

Will she discover the secret before it’s too late?”

Thanks for your time and I’d love to hear from you!
