I used to light myself on fire four times a day. Now I do something seriously hot – I write romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue.
While I haven’t performed my signature ‘fire’ dive from a 10-metre platform in years, I started diving at age the age of ten. By the time I was twelve, I’d won the New Jersey State Championship, and by college, I was a three-time All-American Diver.
I attended the University of Michigan and earned a business degree that led to my diverse careers as, variously, a partner in a barter business, a real estate appraiser, a mover and renovator of houses, and a once-owner of three hair salons. Finally, in 1995, I sold my first book and became a full-time writer. I’ve since sold over a dozen books and I’m currently plotting my way through my next novel.
Of all my careers, my favourite is wife and mother. I married my teenage sweetheart and live with my husband, two children, and Boston terrier, in sunny Florida. I now beat the heat not by diving into cold water, but with my new hobby – figure skating. I also enjoy writing science fiction, screenwriting, boating, and travelling to foreign countries.
