RaeAnne will do anything to tell a story. In 15 years as a newspaper reporter and editor, she rode along with a motorcycle gang, took a trip in a hot air balloon, and even gave a hunky country music star her home phone number. (It was for an interview — honest!)
When she wasn't working as a journalist, though, RaeAnne worked on her real love — writing romance novels. She dreamed of publishing a book long before she ever thought it was possible. In fact, college friends used to spend hours when they should have been studying, trying to help her come up with a good pseudonym — none of which she actually ended up using, since she writes under her own name!
After graduating from college, she took a job as a reporter at a daily newspaper, then moved to news editor. It wasn't until she was home on maternity leave after the birth of her first child in 1990 that RaeAnne seriously tried her hand at fiction writing. She sold her first book in 1995 and quit her editor job two years later to write full-time.
RaeAnne and her husband live in northern Utah. They have two children and are renovating a Queen Anne Victorian house at an excruciatingly slow pace!
When she's not writing or reading, RaeAnne loves to spend time with her family in the mountains near her home, and she's recently taken up embroidering folk art samplers.
She and her family adopted a yellow lab puppy they named Jackson, after Jackson Hole, Wyo. He keeps them all hopping to prevent him from chewing the 100-year-old woodwork in their house to pieces.
