I was born in West Germany, arrived in the U.S. at the age four, and started writing when I was eleven. It was many years before I actually began selling my books, and along the way I acquired a Masters in Shakespearean Comedy from Queens College in N.Y, a husband and two kids (in that order) – the dog came later.
My first romance was bought by Second Chance At Love, November of 1981. The road from there to here has included two hundred and six more sales. I've been published by Silhouette, Harlequin, Zebra, Harper, Bantam and Berkeley. I've been fortunate enough to have received several Rita nominations from the Romance Writers of America Association over the years, with one win for Father Goose (in the Traditional Romance category). I've also been nominated several times in various categories by Romantic Times Magazine.
I hope to be found one day – many, many years from now – slumped over my computer, writing to the last moment. But before then, I would dearly love to write a successful screenplay. My goal has always been to entertain.
