Some of my earliest and happiest memories are of reading, primarily fairy tales. As a child, I spent many hours daydreaming of living in a world where dragons and fairies were real and played with shy little children. When I grew a little older and started reading my parents' books, I discovered E.E. "Doc" Smith, Emilie Loring, and Georgette Heyer, and my imaginary world expanded to include romance, science fiction, and fantasy.
From these early writers, I obtained many of the values I still hold today, and grew up wanting to inspire in others the beliefs they generated in me—a conviction that mankind triumphs over adversity, there is good in everyone, and there is always a happy ending.
I don’t know where my twisted sense of humor comes from, but my love of the absurd extends to my reading. If a writer can combine romance and humor with a fantasy, science fiction, or paranormal element, I'm hooked. And since I couldn't find quite enough books that combine these "twists," I sat down to write some of my own. I now live in Colorado with my two dogs: Bonnie, a cocker spaniel, and Caitlin, a bona-fide mutt.
