I started my writing career (such as it was) at ten, when I got ahold of my mom's mini-recorder and began spinning romantic tales into the microphone. Of course, they were a milder, more chaste version than my current work, but alas, a romance writer was born. I started my first story at twelve, based on real life events (the boy who I was crushing on big time). In my story, however, he wanted me, not the older sister of my schoolmate.

We got our first computer when I was thirteen, and I moved from pencil and paper to technology. Back in those days, it was Word Perfect, and what a perfect world it was. I stayed up all night writing, spinning a web of imaginary characters who met and fell in love.

In high school, I joined the newspaper, eventually moving onto editor my senior year. I'd intended to follow in my father's footsteps, getting a degree in journalism to become a reporter. But, it just wasn't enough. As those wily cops say, "Just the facts, ma'am." Well, the facts were too structured for my wandering brain and big heart.

While I wrote continuously for years, I only finished one story. It wasn't until November 2006 that I completed my first novel. My second novel, The Wedding War was, after several rejections, purchased by The Wild Rose Press in January 2008.

After a three-year hiatus, I've returned to writing, having completed my fifth novel, Leap of Faith, in early 2012.

As I reach my goals as an author, I look forward to my future. Remember: Sheer determination trumps wishes any day. Keep at it, believe in yourself, and commit. Don't just follow your dreams, chase them with reckless abandon!
