I’m a Southern gal, born and raised. Y’all and Bless Your Heart are part of my everyday vocabulary. In the Southern tradition, I married young to a great man (thirty years so far), and have a brilliant daughter who graced me with a fantastic son-in-law.
Like most writers, I’m a voracious reader. I’ve loved reading romance ever since reading about Trixie Belden’s crush on Jim. I also read science fiction and fantasy
And I write whatever comes to mind.
My debut novel Taking Flight is near and dear to my heart. It’s set in West Monroe where I lived for eight years and it’s won awards!
I am currently writing for Harlequin/Mills & Boon and loving it! My agent will soon be sending a ‘big book’ out into the world to find a home, too!
I belong to the writing organization, Romance Writers of America®, a fabulous local writing chapter and some very inspiring online chapters.
See my writing awards. to track my writing progress from the beginning to publication. You can tell I wasn’t an overnight success!
For all of you who have stories in you that want to come out–just do it. Sit down and write.
