At twelve years old, I fell in love with romance after I borrowed a romance novel from the book shelf of my older sister, Karin. An avid reader, I was soon hooked on the happily ever after endings. For years I dreamt of writing my own romance novel, but I never seemed to have the time.
After I graduated from Northeast Missouri State University (Truman State) with a degree in Business Administration/Management. I moved into the city of Chicago to pursue another dream.
I worked as an actress and a model and traveled around the country doing conventions for several large corporations. Ironically enough, I met my future husband, (of course he didn’t know that yet) who lived in Arizona.
Tired after six years of the hustle and bustle of the city, I relocated to a small town in Arizona just north of Phoenix where there are no sidewalks or public transportation and the cowboys still ride their horses to the bars. The wide open spaces of Arizona gave me the inspiration to sit down and finally begin to write. That, and the purchase of a home computer.
Eight years and three manuscripts later, I sold my first novel to Avalon Books. I belong to Romance Writers of America, Novelists Inc., PASIC, American Christian Fiction Writers, Faith Hope & Love-part of RWA, Valley of the Sun Romance Writers, Desert Rose RWA, and my critique buddies, Carol, Marion, Sandy, Shelley, Linda & Kerrie.
I’m currently employed at a local golf resort near Phoenix, Arizona as an Administrative Assistant/Accountant. When I’m not crunching numbers, I’m crunching the keys on my computer keyboard in the early morning hours before my family wakes up.
I still live in that small town in Arizona, with my own hero--my husband, Bill, (we’ve been married almost fifteen years now) my son, Shane, daughter, Emily, our remaining Frisbee® dog and two high-strung hamsters.
