My sister introduced to me to the world of romance novels. Craving romances featuring African-American heroes and heroines, it wasn't long before I had my own stories to tell. I like telling a story that will leave today's busy reader feeling refreshed and hopeful. I soon discovered that writing wasn't easy, but well worth the challenge. With my husband of twenty years and our three school-aged children, finding time to write is still an ongoing challenge. But my hard working parents, married forty-five years, didn't know the meaning of impossible and they passed this ability to meet life's challenges on to me. I was reared in a small town in Southern Virginia, and I feel that I have portrayed that sense of community and mutual support in my debut novel, White Lightning (which went into its second printing three weeks after its release date and made Ingram's bestseller list), and its sequel, With This Kiss. I firmly believe that everyday life in small town America has its own rich rewards.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Virginia State University. Formerly a computer systems manager, I recently made writing my full-time career. I am a member of Romance Writers of America, Multicultural Romance Writers, and Washington Romance Writers where I served as publicity coordinator for one year and worked on market news for two years. Investing is my favorite hobby. I particularly wish to teach children the value of investing, feeling that children can use these skills to help provide them with financial security and confidence in their adult lives.
