Her work has also been published in Canada and Turkey.
While searching for a new literary agent, she’s been writing e-books and polishing two full-length paranormal novels mixed with her zany sense of humor. Zinnia lives with her mountain man husband, and together, they raise large gardens and a houseful of children, not necessarily in that order.
