Prior to selling my first book to Harlequin and finding my bliss, I tried a few other careers on for size. Teaching English proved too restrictive when I discovered I didn’t like being trapped in a classroom any more than the students did. Journalism seemed like a better idea, except that I kept getting assigned to scary stories like rattlesnake milking or parachute jumping.
Finally, my husband suggested I write a romance, which I took as a fine testimonial to our life together. Even better, the career was a perfect fit. Writing romances provides freedom from a schedule without fear of imminent death.
Besides writing, which I’m quite passionate about, my favourite activities are travelling and laughing. Marriage to my indomitable husband – He Who Journeys Without a Map – has provided ample doses of both. Now that the kids are grown and I have a laptop, I’m finally positioned to combine all three of my passions. The trip has just begun!
