About Winnie

I was born and raised in the bayou country of southeast Louisiana, but moved to the opposite corner of the state when I married my college sweetheart over twenty five years ago. Me and my husband, along with our four teenage children, live in Plain Dealing, which is a small community nestled in the piney hill country of northwest Louisiana.

With a BS degree in Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science, I’ve held an 8 - 5 job in the Computer Programming/Information Technology field since I graduated from college. Despite this, my first love has always been reading and writing romances, so it was the biggest thrill when I received that dream-come-true call heralding my first sale in May 2000.

The year 2000 was actually something of a banner year for me in several other areas as well. My husband and I celebrated our silver wedding anniversary and the oldest of our four children headed off for her first year of college. My second born, taking on the role of eldest-sibling-in-residence, got his driver’s license and inherited the less glamourous little-sister-chauffeuring and errand-running responsibilities that came with it. My two youngest – twins – entered the ‘we’re-grown-up-now’ world of high school. And to crown the year off nicely, I received a Christmas present from my editor in the form of a late December call to make an offer on my second book!

I belong to a number of writing organisations, including Romance Writers’ of America and several of its local and special interest chapters. I’m active in these groups as well as in my church – after all, I’m a firm believer in the adage that you reap in proportion to what you sow.
