Darlene was born and raised in Philadelphia but now resides in Bucks County, PA. Her love for nature is palpable as she skitters around Pennsylvania snapping photos of old bank barns, tree lines, and rescuing any critter from the road. She gets her stories from real life and a vivid imagination.
Nature fuels her bones along with the love of a rescued black cat, wonderful husband, and strong coffee. She has been writing seriously since 2006, despite starting back in 1997. Some of her favorite authors include Stephen King, Kurt Vonnegut, Ann Rule, Edgar Allan Poe, and Chuck Wendig.
She uses music to adjust any mood for writing, for driving, and for life.
