I've been book crazy my entire life. When my mom would tell me to go to bed as a kid, I used to hide in the bathroom just so I could squeeze in a few more pages before light out. Playing outside in the afternoons, I'd take my dog Misty outside and tell her elaborate stories of princesses and Indians and dressing her up to play the part.
I grew up in Anaheim, California, home of Disneyland. When I was twelve, I started my first novel. It was about a boy growing up with a race horse. I only managed to get about ten pages into it before I gave up on the idea and wanted to try something else, but the seed of ambition was planted. Que many years (several college majors, various voactions and many attempts to write an entire book) and my first completed novel My Sexiest Mistake sold to Harlequin's Blaze line in September 2001. Shortly followed by victory laps around the living room.
I currently live in New Hampshire with Stephen (he's also a magazine editor), who is my critique partner, copy editor, web master, and master of my heart.
