I read my first Harlequin Romance novel when I was just eleven years old, after receiving it free in a box of garbage bags. I've been reading – and loving! – romance novels ever since.
In my spare time, I love to garden and cook… well, bake. Mostly cookies. Naturally, I still love to read a good romance book. I've been blissfully married for nearly nine years. When we can ditch our five pets for a couple of weeks, me and my husband like to travel to exotic and exciting locations, such as Greece, Costa Rica and Ignorant Flats, Texas.
I have a degree in English from Texas A&M University and after college I taught middle school for four years. While teaching America's disenfranchised youth to appreciate fine literature, I learned very little about writing romance but a lot about finding humour in any situation. Eager for a job where I wouldn't have to dodge spitwads, I fled the teaching profession to write full-time. Though my characters sometimes misbehave, they almost never throw things at me.
