I always liked to play make-believe and writing fiction seemed like a natural progression in my life. What started out as a little girl imagining that all those hidden nooks and crannies in my back yard were castles and mansions, evolved into a teenager wanting to become an actress, and ended up turning into a young woman writing romance novels.
I have an Associate’s Degree in Theatre Arts. Married for 39 years to my high-school sweetheart, we are the proud parents of two sons, two daughters-in-law and the very happy grandparents to five adorable grandkids. After living in upstate NY for the better part of my life, my husband and I packed it in moving to the San Francisco Bay area. We were there for three years and then we packed again moving back to New York State. After a decade of living downstate, we’ve finally settled back upstate.
I sold my first novel, an historical romance titled Mountain Jewel, on 9/9/99! Remember that was the day everyone thought all the computers were going to crash! I’ve written books for half a dozen publishers. My books have been a finalist in several prestigious Romance Writers of America contests. The National Excellence in Romance Fiction, The Greater Detroit’s Booksellers Best and the National Reader’s Choice Awards.
