C.H. Scarlett lives with her three children, many animals, and husband. Her life has been spent between the mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. Because she grew up poor and away from siblings, people, or family--her imagination became the one thing that kept her entertained. She fell in love with the Paranormal at a very young age, and has spent her life exploring and educating herself, along with many other subjects such as the Occult, Myths and Lore, Ancient Religions, and lost Cultures.
When she isn't writing a novel or blogs, she is usually spending time with her children, or making one of her Wallpapers, or creating a Book Cover for someone, or other graphics.

If you have read one of her books, have a comment, and or wish to contact her directly...



Born and raised in Wisconsin I currently reside in Spencer, Wisconsin with my husband Ron, and our pets.  Rocky a three-legged Husky, Tucker a German Shepherd dog, Molly a black lab, two cats Baby and Zeus, and a Blue Tongued Skink named Slippery.  We have three grown sons that we are proud of.  Each one making their own way in the world. 

My mom is the one that always told me I was creative and should write books.  Either I should thank her for this crazy life of a writer, or blame her.  A story about my childhood was included in A Cup of Comfort for Adoptive Families. 

The Dream House began as a re-occurring dream, so now I keep a notebook, flashlight, and pen beside the bed.  You never know when an idea will present itself.  My sister, Tammy told me to write the reoccuring dream down and it became a novel.  Read the story of a kidney donation between my sister and I, featured in Chicken Soup for the Coffee Lover's Soul.  

My second novel, a mystery thriller entitled Bolt Action will be published by Champagne Books, April 2010.  Can gun hording, Harley riding Detective Leslie Bolt conquer her past and capture "The State Quarter Killer" before her sister is the next victim? 

I am seeking publication for my mystery for middle grade readers entiled The Curse of King Ramessess II.  Rumors of a mummified King, haunting the Bradford Museum surface.  Mia and Jody stow away in the museum and a girl version of a Abbott and Costello investagation unfolds in the heart-racing, eventful night.

I am currently working on a paranormal ghost story entitled The Haunting of Ingersull Penitentiary.  Check in at your own risk.  

I have several article that will be featured in Canadian Kids Magazine in 2009, six puzzles in Guide Magazine, article in The Highground, and an article in The Little Lutheran, and The Little Christian.  One Way Street published my children's skit Career Day.  

  I am a member of Wisconsin Regional Writer's Association.

I have been writing for as long as I can remember, winning my first writing award in a second grade Caldecott Medal contest. Readers' Digest gave me my very first publishing credit in April, 1994, and I was hooked. I seemed to have followed writing contests around, being a finalist in such online contests as American Title III, sponsored by Romantic Times BOOKreview Magazine and Dorchester Publishing, and two First Chapters contests, sponsored by Gather.com and Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books.

             My imaginary friend was Casper the Friendly Ghost. The little ghoul even had a special place set for him at our dinner table and got blamed for many of my childhood mishaps. I grew up watching Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie and The Addams Family--my mom looked like Elizabeth Montgomery and I had a special Barbie outfit that looked like Morticia Addams' dress. My favorite books are Bewitching by Jill Barnett and A Knight In Shining Armor, by Jude Devereaux, so it should come as no surprise that I like to write tongue-in-cheek lighthearted paranormals. 

          I love pop culture and manipulating language, so you'll find lots of puns, double entrendre, plays-on-words, alliteration, clich├ęs, and twisting of phrases, as well as several one-liners in my stories that give me a few chuckles. I studied Spanish at Penn State (Go Lions!), lived in Spain and traveled throughout that beautiful country. 

          I've always written and still have my journal from fourth grade where, even then, my stories were full of fantastical creatures, whimsy and magic. I wrote my first romance in 9th grade and still have that story in my memory chest. Even back then I dreamed of being a writer.

          Now with kids, a husband, a house, a social life (Go Survivor Girls!), and two cocker spaniels named Vixen and Raven, I get to live my dream of being a writer!

Hi I'm Nicola Ormerod Wife, mother
and now hopefully writer.

I live in Aberdeen, Scotland with my Husband, Simon and my two wonderful boys. I began writing at school and Red's Robin was one of the first book i completed. It was originally a diary and Robin wasn't the fiery model we see today. In all honesty it was probably a very very poor attempt but hey how many fourteen year olds have written a book.

I have written Red's Robin three or four times over in the last fifteen years and finally after a lot of encouragement from friends I have decided I'm ready to unleash it on the world.

If you liked Red's Robin please please please email me and tell me. This book is totally self published and its cost me a small fortune. The second book, The Taming of Ilona is finished but I’m really hoping an agent will take me on board. So email me, you could well be helping me on the way to a dream career.
