I didn’t grow up burning to be a writer. As a child I wasn’t even much of a reader until I reached fourth grade. That’s when I was stuck at home with the flu and my big sister read The Black Stallion aloud to me. For hours I was enthralled – shipwrecked in a foreign land and riding an untamed horse across the hot desert sand. Then tragedy struck. My sister lost her voice. (I think she caught my flu.) But I couldn’t wait to hear what happened to Alec Ramsey – so I picked up that book, finished reading it by myself and went in search of more adventures at the local library.
My debut novel, Better Than Bulletproof was a HOLT Medallion Award of Merit recipient, a 2010 Readers’ Crown finalist and a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nominee. My fourth Intrigue in the Bulletproof series, Bulletproof Hearts, won the 2012 HOLT Medallion in Short Contemporary and was a finalist in the National Readers' Choice Awards.
