In August of 2006, I relocated from my home town of Moore, Oklahoma to Kansas City, Missouri. It was hard to leave my friends and family behind but I love the area. I also love that my friends and family enjoy visiting me here..especially my children, Lana, Lacey, and Presley.
I've been an obsessive reader for as long as I can remember and started writing at a very young age. One of the first books I read that really stuck with me and made me want to write was Sweet, Savage Love by Rosemary Rogers-which I read 8 times, starting when I was around thirteen...probably too young for such a racy book :-) I now love to read thrillers and paranormals. Some of my favorite writers, although it would be impossible to list them all, are Dean Koontz, Dennis Lehane, Jonathan Kellerman, Sharon Sala, Jordan Dane, Michael Connelly, Lisa Gardner, Merline Lovelace, Gena Showalter, Stephen King, Rachel Vincent, and many, many others.
I am fortunate enough to be a member of an amazing and wonderful writing group, Oklahoma Romance Writers of America. I've also made some great friends through The Wild Rose Press. I can't express how much the support and encouragement of my fellow writers has meant to me, particularly one special and very giving lady, best-selling author, Sharon Sala. I also have an incredible network of family and friends who have given me loving support and encouragement as I've pursued my dream.
