About me


I love romance.

I also love the paranormal, the fantasy. You wouldn't believe the dreams I have sometimes. Or maybe you would.

I have been wondering lately why so many books about paranormal romance have been so popular. Especially those depicting 2 guys to 1 girl. I'm almost too embarrassed to admit that I have had those kinds of dreams for quite a while. What's up with that?

I don't know but I like it. Hence my books about all that.
I have enough stories mapped out to last me for the rest of my life. I won't have a boring life. I don't now, even though I'm not living in my own house and don't have all my things unpacked. Haven't had since 2001.

I've had to take care of my mother. And now my brother. Both had, have, severe diabetes and all the complications that go along with that. It's why I'm living in my mother's, now my sister's, house. I don't know how I lucked out with not having that affliction but I'm very happy not to have it. Poor souls. I just do what I can.

But getting back to romance novels, I also love Regency Romance. I have 4 books started, about half finished, and will get back to them as soon as I can. They're all 4 linked together through a common enemy. They'll get finished.

I also am working on 2 other books, paranormal romance novels, one vampire, the other dragon king. I know I should work on only one at a time but I keep dreaming about them and, of course, have to get up in the middle of the night and write down what I just dreamed. I can't seem to help it. I love all this stuff so much. Sounds childish, I know, but hey, I'm having a blast.

It is said, to become a good writer you must be an avid reader and I am. I read everything that comes across my path that doesn't bore the dickens out of me. Meaning text books and instruction manuals. I read everything else, even bibles. I love the biblical names, try to use them as much as possible for my characters. Only here lately I've gotten a list of modern names, boys and girls. It seems that a lot of readers today like those names better, so I'm giving in. But there are a lot of nice names in that category so I'm not disappointed.

Let's see. What else am I doing? Oh yeah. I'm also writing children's books but I have those over on my Magical Writing website. Then there are my design sites, my CafePress store and my Etsy stores. I have a lot of writing and designs to do.

That's all I can think of for now. When other things come up and get done, I'll stick them in here. But for now. . .

Love and peace,
AK

My Causes.
I have 3 causes I donate to. One is the Wounded Warriors program. Another is Shriner's Children’s Hospital. These two are well known so I won’t go into them here. But there is one special cause I'd like to talk about.


There is no organization for this cause, but there is a very real need for one. I don’t know if our government has anything in mind for this, but every city in our nation has this problem. The problem I’m talking about is of people who ‘slip through the cracks’. What I mean is there are people, families, who make just a little too much money to qualify for government help, but not enough to pay their bills and feed their families at the same time. Or even to feed themselves at the same time if they have no family to worry about.


There is a dilemma in our country, the United States of America, that I’m sure all of you have experienced. That dilemma is: the cost of living has risen over the last 50 or so years faster than people’s wages. Way too many of our citizens are fighting a losing battle. Their wages can’t keep pace with their bills.


Now I’m not talking about luxury bills. I’m talking about regular, necessary bills like utilities, auto payments, insurance and medical, and grocery bills. House payments. People need these services to survive. And some people’s wages are inadequate to the point where they even lose their homes. I know this from my own experience. I lost my home, too.


My own experience is what put the seed of this idea in my head. I tithe. But instead of putting my money into programs that have so much red tape for people to go through, I go directly to the utility companies here in town and ask them to choose a family’s bill that’s overdue and I pay it. Or if the bill is more than I have to give, I put my donation toward it.

I don’t make enough money to pay every needy person’s bills, or even all of one family’s bills, so I pick one family and only one of the bills. It’s not much but it’s something.


This is one reason why I put up my website here. One reason is, of course, to sell my books, but my second reason is to let everyone know about this dilemma that exists here in our country. I know that most people already know about it but some people don’t. I’m just mentioning it here to let all of you know that a portion of my earnings here are going toward this. I will continue to do as I have been for the families in need and I thank all of you for helping me do this.
