I've been a writer all my life but not completed a manuscript until autumn of 2014. I'd worked in numerous fields, even owned businesses but nothing panned out for me. My default job was bartending. Having my days free something finally clicked and I figured out that I could write books. With my husband and kids cheering me on I've been writing non-stop ever since. Ironically, bartending is the perfect compliment to writing. It requires me to get dressed, go outside of my home and interact with other human beings. Writing romance novels is a dream come true. I hope my books can provide a fraction of the comfort Mary Balogh's books have brought me.
