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 also love to research for background material to help with my stories.
I've led a checkered past, I must admit. I dropped out of college, worked in various offices until I married my high school sweetheart (of course, Mr. 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 graduate degrees in English and in Library Science. Yes, libraries were and still are my happy place and I thrive on helping patrons. After years of ordering library books 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.
What do I do to relax? Read, naturally! I also maintain a large perennial garden -- roses are my favorite; weeding is not -- and love to quilt, knit and crochet.
