I've been a writer and a storyteller for as long as I can remember. My mom tells me when I was three years old I used to sit with a book in my lap and 'read' to my baby brother, making up the story as I went along. I wrote my first novel at the age of 12, reading a chapter each week to my sixth grade class during Share Time. I didn't know it then, but I was learning first-hand all about creating hooks, engaging my audience, and leaving them wanting more. Those lessons have stood me in good stead over the years.
I wrote my first adult novel in 1982 as a result of a dare from my husband. It was published by Harlequin in 1984 and I have gone to write over 26 novels.
On the personal side of things, I've been married for nearly 40 years to the love of my life, I have two Dobermans who think they are lap dogs, I love to garden and cook, and I can't resist a fabulous pair of shoes.
