Let me tell you a little bit about myself:  I've been an avid reader ever since that first Nancy Drew book I picked up years ago.  No, actually I lied -- I got hooked on reading with comic books!  Hey, whatever it takes, right?  Since then, I've surrounded myself with books, enjoying contemporary and historical romances, mysteries and once in awhile I dip into paranormals. 


I've led a checkered past, I must admit.  I dropped out out college, worked in various offices until I was bored to death, then married my high school sweetheart (of course, tall, dark and handsome!), raised my babies, went back to college part-time and finished my bachelor's degree, then continued, albeit slowly, to earn my graduate degrees in English and Library Science.  Yes, libraries fascinated me and made me happy to live among all those books! 


After years of ordering library books, advising patrons on what to read next, and facilitating several writers groups, I decided to try my hand at writing a novel -- and I was hooked!  I published my first romance as an indie author in 2016 and haven't looked back since then.  I am an active member of the Romance Writers of America and in my local state chapter.


What do I do to relax?  READ -- ha, ha!  I also maintain a large perennial garden -- roses are my favorite -- and love to craft, whether with yarn, paper, paints or digital graphic design (I am so in love with CANVA right now). 


Well, that's my story -- and I'm sticking to it!
