I was raised in a rather unusual environment. My mother owned a successful modeling agency in Salt Lake City. I was on a runway by the time I was 5, teaching modeling by age 16, and helping women find confidence and a core of self-worth, by my early 20's. The fashion industry also gave me a background in creating special events.
I have made my living as a professional muralist, motivational speaker, TV Talk Show Host, and author. I majored in journalism and art in college, and find joy in creating, using both brush and keyboard.
Writing about historic places with paranormal activity is a passion of mine. Their history is fascinating...what I call the "bones" of the place. From there you begin to understand the hauntings that typically list the places I write about in the top 10 most-haunted venues in the world. I research them extensively, spend the nights in their shadowed bedrooms, and interview the owners, staff, and customers to create the most comprehensive book I can. I was featured on Coast to Coast Am with George Noory for a 2-hour interview with 3 million people listening in. What a thrill! From there I've been featured on countless radio programs and TV shows. It's always such a blessing to be included in their forums.
I have recently segued into the field of True Crime. It was a natural extension for my love of mystery. Countdown to Murder: Pam Hupp is now on sale, and Countdown to Murder: Alex Murdaugh has a May, 2023 release date. These are two multiple murder cases that you won't believe.
My other books deal with creating businesses in the creative arts, how to have a life of abundance through confidence, and understanding what makes relationships work; and of course, fiction and non-fiction in the mystery/supernatural genre.
I am a proud mother of four amazing sons, a mother-in-law to 3 beautiful daughters-in-law, and a grandmother to 9 enthusiastic grandchildren. I live in the beautiful foothills of the Colorado Rockies, where I indulge my love of boating, golf, and adventure.
