I live on a lake in the Pacific Northwest. I'm happily married and have three children. I've been writing since 1989, but I did lots of things before settling in to my writing career, including owning a singing telegram company and playing in a band. My band days are over, but I still enjoy writing songs. I'm proud to say that my books are best sellers and often appear as Reader's Digest Condensed Books. My novel On Strike for Christmas was a Lifetime Network movie and she has since optioned more books for film.
When I'm not speaking to women’s groups or at conferences or hanging out with my girlfriends I can be found writing about those things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.
