My interest in writing got an early start when my sixth-grade teacher told us to complete the following sentence: “It was a dark and stormy night…” With that my love of all things paranormal was born.
I didn’t start writing with an eye toward publication until 1999. I had a few short stories win some contests and get published in now-defunct publications. A move to Arizona in 2000 and a new job put my writing on hold. In early 2005 I couldn’t keep the stories inside any longer and made the decision to focus on a writing career, beginning with electronic publishers. Under the pen name Sherrill Quinn, I signed my first contract in September 2005, and my first novella was published in March 2006. In 2009 the first of three Kensington Brava books was released.
In 2012 my Warriors of the Rift series came to life at Grand Central. In early next year 2014 came The Awakening series.
Beginning in 2016, my romantic suspense series Hot Desert Heroes will be published with Samhain Publishing.
I love action movies, chick flicks, and reading romance (just about every sub-genre!) and hate shopping. By day I’m a mostly mild-mannered Human Resources Manager for a local non-profit organization. I’m originally from northeast Ohio and fled the snow fifteen years ago to live in the heat of southeastern Arizona.
