Many moons ago -- in 1983 while I was still a school librarian -- I sold my first story to True Story. This launched me into writing about seventy of those "true confessions" stories over the years, and I've been a slave to my overactive imagination ever since.
The next big step was selling my first historical romance in 1990, a Zebra Heartfire called COLORADO CAPTIVE. Then came GAMBLER'S TEMPTING KISSES, COLORADO MOONFIRE, MISSOURI MAGIC, SAHARA SPLENDOR, and OUTLAW MOON. They're all out of print now!
After a long dry spell that entailed major changes in the publishing industry and an agent who fritzed out. Now, I'm back in a whole new genre, with a new publisher and editor. I'm really pleased to know where my next stories are coming from! Being an author is great fun when you're selling, but it's best to have a hide like a rhinoceros and a spouse who gets a regular paycheck!
Patience, persistence and just flat-out luck have given me this opportunity to reinvent myself yet again. Those angels I write about keep pulling me through, and are often my friends and family -- but I owe a lot to the heavenly beings who bear me up on their wings, as well!
My stories invariably take on a life of their own, different from the way I've proposed them: I love it when unforeseen characters and plot twists come along, because they keep me guessing right along with my readers!
love touring historic homes, trying new recipes, crocheting, and playing with Ramona -- although it's humbling, having a dog smarter than I am! I'm an ordained Presbyterian deacon, and I devote a lot of time to singing and chiming in my church choirs, as well as hostessing a monthly potluck group and cooking our Adult Fellowship lunches. I'm celebrating thirty years with my husband, who -- bless him -- has never once suggested I get a real job!
