I was born in northwest Illinois and spent my early years climbing trees and the headstones in the nearby cemetery and exploring the lush green world of dairy farms, meadows and wooded areas that still existed in rural America in the 60's. My father was a minister at a small country church, and I always say my sisters and I grew up like the Bronte girls, living in the world of nature, books and our imaginations. We moved to Iowa when I was ten but by then my internal world was already more satisfying than the real one. I was pretty much a misfit--a hippie chick/intellectual rebel in a world of wholesome, sports-minded conformists.
I eventually moved to Wyoming, attended the University of Wyoming and after a brief stint in Venice, CA, married a Wyoming native and dedicated outdoors enthusiast. Since there are few other places in the world where my husband could indulge his passion for trout fishing less than an hour from our house, I'm probably here to stay.
After several jobs in public relations and advertising, I've finally found my niche working in a public library where I maintain the fiction collection. I began writing my first novel in 1990 and sold my first book in 1993. Since then I've published ten books under four names.
I especially enjoy writing about the dark age and medieval time periods, and I have a passion for all things Celtic. The reason for that became clear to me when I came upon a letter written by my great-grandfather. In it he explains that his family (the Logans) were druids and the family name came from a sacred hanging stone found off the coast of Cornwall. Well, of course--I was obviously a Celtic priestess in another life!
When I'm not working or writing I enjoy reading, spending time with my husband, two college-age children and my pets (a dog and three cats), walking, cooking or doing anything to avoid housework.
