In retrospect it seems a natural progression, but I never expected I'd end up entertaining others by sharing the stories I'd always conjured up in my mind. I started my family young and didn't believe I'd ever have the time, or the patience, or even the desire to bring my natural flair for storytelling full circle.
In my case, it seems 'natural' was the key word. It seemed natural to me that I should take up my love of reading again as soon as my children were old enough to allow me a few minutes of spare time and after a year of reading every historical romance I could get my hands on, well... it seemed natural that I should decide I wanted to write, one, too!
That first historical romance was rewritten three times (which I now credit as an invaluable learning experience) before it was finally published. Now more than forty books later, I am proud to have received many awards for my writing and to be a USA Today bestselling author.
On the home front, I live in northern New Jersey with my husband and three children who are undoubtedly my staunchest fans.
