I started reading romance, science fiction and horror at a very young age. My love of books is directly responsible for my overflowing bookcases, and what I have stored on my new Kindle threatens to eclipse my entire paper collection! I currently write mainstream and contemporary romance filled with family, rich characters and engaging plots. For me, it all comes back to the love.
I began my writing odyssey as a poet, crafting Victorian-style poetry, then went on to writing short stories. I found my niche when I began writing longer and longer short stories, until I wrote my first novel. It might never see the light of day, but writing it taught me a lot. Over the years I worked a variety of jobs, from farm hand to costume designer to fiscal accountant, before deciding a writing career was my true focus.
Currently I live in Upstate New York on a sixty-acre farm with husband Don, rat terrier Daisy Mae and two barn cats who constantly slack off on the job of keeping the barn free of varmints. Our extended family is scattered all over the United States and Alaska.
When I’m not pounding away at my keyboard or burying my nose in books and Kindle, I tend a huge vegetable garden and help Don maintain a sixty-acre farm.
