Tricia was born in Michigan and knew at an early age that she had a creative soul and a connection to the paranormal.
After moving to Maryland her first artistic expressions were in the forms of crafts, sketches and paintings. In later years she even dabbled in comic book art, before getting her Associates Art Degree in Studio Art.
During the 1980’s Tricia branched out into jewelry design creating a small handmade jewelry business, which is still operating today at http://Wildstar.artfire.com
While Tricia had begun writing in her early teens it was not until 2007 when she met a wonderful group of likeminded women (through of all things an online fan club discussion for one hot young vampire) who encouraged her to take that first step and introduce her intriguing stories to the world. After that the dam of creativity broke and a multitude of plot bunnies burst forth.
By day, Tricia is a Customer Service manager for an insurance brokerage handling clients numerous daily needs; by night, she wields her mighty keyboard to craft otherworldly universes filled with fantastical – and often lusty – creatures, who beckon us to join them in their irresistible adventures that determine the fate of men and angels.”
Tricia has been inspired by everything from music, art, religious mythology, ancient aliens’ theory, and history.
Over the years a collection of writers have helped to shape her thinking and views of the world, including Ursula Le Guin, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Tanya Huff, JD Ward, Gena Showalter, Larrisa Ione, Alexandria Ivy, Kresley Cole, Jeaniene Frost, Kevin Hearne, Colleen Doran, and Mercedes Lackey.
