I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, but have been fortunate enough to live in several diverse cities--St. Louis, Missouri, Rockford, Illinois, Memphis, Tennessee, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I have two adult children and seven grandchildren. My husband and I recently moved back to Memphis to be nearer to family. Much of my spare time is used to indulge in my guilty pleasures like floating around in my pool on a hot summer day. And if I happen to think up a good plot line while doing so, all the better. I also have little containers of ice cream stashed in out of the way places in my freezer. I love writing and hope readers enjoy the journey of my stories along with me.
