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 of college, worked in various offices until I was bored to death, 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 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.
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 craft, whether with fabric, yarn, paper, paints or digital graphic design.
Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
