I've always wanted to be a writer, ever since the age of seven or eight when I copied the pictures out of a Charlie Brown book and rewrote the story because I didn't like the plot. Through the years my stories have changed, but one thing has always stayed true: romance. Each and every one of my manuscripts included a love story so what else could I be but a romance writer?
I've worked as a receptionist/secretary for several law firms, a grunt in a library, a computer lab tech and also tried my hand at being a secretary/office manager for a large commercial real estate development company. But while these various jobs paid the bills, I wanted more.
My chance came after I quit work to stay home with my family. But while I loved being home, I was climbing the walls. Honestly, I HATE housekeeping. Dirty clothes, dishes, sweeping? I'd rather read, but what do you do when you run out of things to read? Write. So I did. Now nearly six years later, I sold my first book to Superromance, and my feet haven't touched the floor since getting the call (see my blog for details), and within ten months I'd sold four manuscripts to Superromance. Talk about thrilling!
As for what else I like to do---shopping (I do this well and consider it retail-stress therapy, just ask my husband ;) gardening, and reading, of course.
Born and raised in Kentucky, I now live in a small southern Ohio town. My house is a constant state of messy chaos shared by my family and a hormonal Yorkie who thinks she's a queen.
