I write books to make people smile, to bring some laughter into a reader's day. I figure we could all use a little more of that in our lives, right? I don't know of anyone who says 'No, thanks, I've got all the laughter I can handle right now!' Too much stress, yes – too much laughter? Naw. Although I do remember this one time when I was eleven that I laughed so hard that my best friend and I spewed chocolate milk all over the prim pink-and-white striped wallpaper we were helping my mom put up, but that's another story that will show up in a book someday soon.
I'm often asked where I get the ideas for my books. Sometimes I say 'the Idea Closet' but the truth is that writers get ideas from all around them.
I've been a romance writer for nearly fifteen years now, but I've been a romance reader for over twenty years. I have walls filled with keeper shelves of books and I have all the signs of bookhoarding – including the inability to pass a bookstore without checking inside to see if anything new has come out!
Romance readers are the best! A special thanks to all of you!
Thanks again for stopping by.
All the best,
