Despite being a child of the North Carolina mountains, I seem destined to find myself living anywhere other than the mountains! My family moved to Florida when I was nine, inspiring me with a lifelong love of the ocean and a long day spent at the beach. After I married my husband – a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, I moved with him to Nashville while he attended medical school. From there we moved on to Virginia, California, and Washington, D.C.
Along the way we were blessed with two lovely daughters, Elizabeth and Rebecca, and two different sets of dogs – cocker spaniels Prudence and Chloe, and their successors, miniature dachshunds Schultz and Dooley.
We’re now settled pretty permanently in North Carolina, and I try to remember that mountain flowers don't grow well in the heat of a Sandhills summer, that fall isn't an abrupt change of season but a gentle, lingering evolution, and that winter without snow can be… well, endured. Contrary to my husband's preference for nice hotels, I would rather sleep in a tent than a bed and rather rake leaves than vacuum carpet… and I’d rather spend more time writing romance than raking or vacuuming. Or, for that matter, sleeping!
