I got hooked on writing after completing my first book aged thirteen. I’m also a die-hard romantic and married my husband five days after we met - I guess I was just destined to write romance novels!
I began my career as a newspaper journalist and columnist – a path I followed for sixteen years, before publishing my first novel in 1980, when I retired my press badge and devoted myself to a life of penning charm-filled, sensual romances.
In 1995 I graduated summa cum laude from Piedmont college (at the age of forty-nine!) and it was an experience that I will always cherish. I now fund a science scholarship at my alma mater in my late father’s name, which he’d laugh to know as I'm terrible at Maths! I also fund a nursing scholarship at the Oglala Lakota College in South Dakota, in the name of my late mother, who was a nurse.
I am passionate about nature and the beautiful, rolling Texan landscapes often serve as a backdrop to my stories. I'm passionate about preservation, and I am a member of the Native American Rights Fund, the American Museum of Natural History, the National Cattleman's Association, the Planetary Society, the Georgia Sheriff's Association and numerous conservation and charitable organizations.
My other loves include knitting, quilting, astrology, Spanish language soap operas and fast cars – my latest is a Jaguar.
