Although I’ve always loved reading and writing, I’m not one of those people who has always known I want to be an author.
I discovered my love of romantic fiction a few years ago, while picking up summer library books for my two boys. I noticed a historical romance by Shirlee Busbee on the end cap and picked it up to browse through while waiting in line to check out our books.
That’s all it took to hook me.
I spent that summer reading every historical romance I could get my hands on.
A few months later, I was motivated to try writing my own story, which resulted in my first manuscript, Compromising Willa.
Now I cannot imagine not writing. I guess you could say I’m a late bloomer.
I’m a former television journalist who decided it was much more fun to make up stories where a happy ending is always guaranteed. Growing up as a Foreign Service brat, I’ve been lucky enough to visit many countries, including France, Bolivia, Peru, Panama, Morocco, Egypt, Laos, Thailand and India. I’m now happily settled in Virginia with my husband and two sons. When I’m not bent over my laptop or trying to keep up with laundry, I love to read, spend time with my family, or plan my next travel adventure.
I am a proud member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA), Washington Romance Writers, Maryland Romance Writers and the New Jersey Romance Writers.
I am fortunate to be represented by Kevan Lyon at the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
