Toni V Sweeney

Although my last name is now  Sweeney and I have red hair and green eyes, don't think I'm Irish.  The Sweeney was Himself and he's been gone to his Reward for lo, this decade.  I'm French-Alsatian, descended from Huguenots who fled to England and Lutherans who came to the Colonies with Lafayette. I've found myself in some very far-reaching places, and have traveled and lived from one side of the US of A to the other.  I've sweltered in the South Georgia, been knee-deep in snow in the Midwest andnow live under palm trees in southern California--or the "Southland" as the natives call it.
I've written quite a few books,  mostly in adventure/romances, with romances under the pen name, Icy Snow Blackstone.

I'm a grandmother of a 13-year-old and a 6-year-old.

I've been a dancer and a painter, had one-woman shows of my paintings.  I drive a silver Sentra XE and wish it was a Jag.  Someday....

I have two new books scheduled for this year, a science fiction, Sinbad's Wife and a fantasy, Blood Curse, both of which are sequels to books published last year by Double Dragon Press.
