All I ever wanted to do is write. Well, early on, (after that whole childhood thing had passed) I wanted to right the wrongs of the world by the might of my pen so I took a lot of journalism classes in college and worked for newspapers. Then I became a mommy and a wife and soon, I had no time to write words or to right wrongs. I was too busy . . .
The domesticated life wasn't exactly rife with gripping exposés (unless you count the time my newly potty-trained child peed in a public toilet then proceeded to announce it with loud toddler joy to the all the patrons in the restaurant) or exciting jaunts to far-off places (unless you count trips to the lobby of the doctor's office where I always find screaming, cranky pygmies fighting over the ONE available toy). Is it any wonder I turned to writing fiction? In fiction, kids go to bed on time, adults have real moments of solitude, and chocolate is calorie-free.
In 1998, I sold my first book, a romantic comedy called Daddy In Training to Hard Shell Word Factory. Since then, I've sold novels, novellas, short stories, poetry and nonfiction to many electronic and print publishers. My articles have appeared in Writer's Digest Magazine, RT BOOKClub Magazine, and Byline Magazine.
I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, lived for eight years in Las Vegas, Nevada, and, in the summer of 2004, I moved to Tampa, Florida with my husband and our two children. We reside in a lovely house with four persnickety cats who deign to grace us with their presence (as long as the food is good).
