For starters, I have a really long name and that’s all my fault. A word to the wise: either keep your maiden name or take your spouse’s name. Unless you’re Hilary Rodham Clinton or Jada Pinkett Smith, just slapping your spouse’s last name onto your name and expecting the world to roll with it does not work. People will be confused and try to hyphenate you.
I am an indie author and Glimpse (Zellie Wells Book One), a YA paranormal romance novel, was my first self-publishing endeavor. Since then I have published Glimmer (Zellie Wells Book Two), Glow (Zellie Wells Book Three), Day of Sacrifice: The Prophecy, Rebellion: The Outer Territory, Dormant: Forever United, and Takeover: Will of the Gods. The next installment, Dissent, will be published in early 2012. I also have a book of humorous essays out, entitled The Toilet Business (A Lifetime Of Crappy Jobs).
I live in Beaverton, Oregon-which is 8 miles outside of Portland. My house is orange on purpose. I’ve got one husband, two kids, one dog, two cats and three useless college degrees.
My favorite color is green and I could eat bread and butter for every meal for the rest of my life and be fine with it.
When I’m not writing, I play with my kids, read, watch bad television, direct children’s theatre and drive around in my mini-van singing along to age inappropriate music.
The Zellie paperback covers were designed by my sister Valerie Wallace, who totally kicks ass and is the queen of printmaking.
