I grew up surrounded by books, storytellers and interesting characters. I credit my family for instilling in me the love of a good story in any form. Being an avid reader, the idea came to me that I ought to try writing a story of my own, but it didn't take me long to realise it was easier said than done. So when I had the opportunity to pursue a masters degree in writing popular fiction, it seemed a natural fit. I try to write the kinds of stories I would want to read.
I live in rural western Pennsylvania with my parents on our small family farm, where I work on my next project while watching cattle wander outside my window. I teach elementary school in the district I attended as a child. When I'm not working, writing or reading, I enjoy travelling, making cards and spoiling my nieces and nephews on a regular basis.
