About Stephannie

I’m a book reading, coffee drinking, knowledge seeking, woo-woo curious writer, crafter, book cover designer, cook, geek girl, and mother of two, who was once a city girl but who now lives in the country with her sexy ranching husband.

Who am I?

…I’m a Book Reader. While I love books about forbidden love, aliens, mythology, sexy heroes and strong heroines, space travel, dark secrets, fantasy worlds, magic quests, historical times, and science fiction, I also love to learn and will read non-fiction in any subject that interests me. My To-Be-Read pile is taller than dear my hubby. Want to know what I’m reading? Check out The Reading List (updated monthly).

…I’m Woo-Woo Curious. I’m a big believer in following my intuition, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time. As a child, I decided I wanted to grow up to be a witch or a shaman (thank you mom for the book, “The Little Witch and the Riddle” by Bruce Degen, and the movie “Sheena”). As I got older, I decided that I didn’t want to be either, but that didn’t stop my interest in the supernatural, paranormal, occult, spiritual, or mystical phenomena. (I also like the idea of aliens in the vastness of space thanks to the line in Contact about if it was us it’s an awful waste of space.) I guess it’s no surprise that woo-woo and sci-fi makes it way into my writing.

…I’m a Writer whose imagination and passion for reading lead me to create worlds populated by people who live in the distant times, ancient myths, exotic lands, and the deep of space. If you are a book lover, you may want to check out my books and even add a few to your reading list. *hint, hint*

…I’m a Crafter who started my creative path young, cutting and sewing bits of fabric handed to me my mother and telling stories. I loved learning new crafts and added knitting, crocheting, wood working, jewelry making, cross-stitch, and the list goes on. Recently, my children and home have been my biggest inspiration to create things we love.

…I’m a Book Cover Designer who uses the skills my artistic mother and art classes taught me about composition, plus what I’ve learned about photo-manipulation and blending, to create affordable, eye-catching book cover designs to indie authors and publishers.

I’m a Geek girl who is a fan of shows such as Doctor Who, Firefly (Serenity), Star Trek, Castle, Bones, The Walking Dead, James Bond, and a few low-budget TV shows I’m ashamed to admit watching. And while I love reading romances, I prefer watching Paranormal, Action, Horror, Sci-Fi, and Thriller flicks.

I was a City Girl whose life threw her an unexpected twist when my path collided with a sexy rancher. Now I pretend to be a hermit, which I pretty much fail at since I share my coveted solitude with a hubby, two daughters, a herd of cows, an assortment of stray kitties, and the dog we inherited.

I’m a wife of a very understanding and loving rancher who chuckles at my random geekiness and tries his hardest to keep an interested smile on his face as I ramble on about my latest idea or book I’m reading, peppered with a few random thoughts roaming through my head and sprinkled with a pinch of the inappropriate just to see if he’s listening. Sometimes I even manage to shock a laugh out of him.

And I’m a Mother of two rambunctious girls, which is a very important job and not as easy as it might sound. I was always told that girls were easy to rise until they became teens. Well, those people never met my daughters. They are ingenious, mischief makers who are extremely entertaining to watch and who can land into trouble faster than any boy I’ve met. They also have a backyard that is about 200 acres, which they are bound and determined to explore and get lost in.
