Bio

So, you want to know a little more about me? I’ll try and stick with the highlights.

I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. After graduating high school, I moved to Los Angeles and did what most people do in L.A. Tried to make it in show biz. I did okay. Got enough acting work to pay the rent and keep the S.A.G. card. (Screen Actors Guild in case anyone is wondering.) I also worked as a Dialogue Coach in sitcoms. (That’s code for acting coach and also means I helped the actors learn their lines.)

Writing came as a fluke. After blowing out several ligaments in my foot – from a beautiful backhand gone wrong on the tennis court – and a very intense dream (I apparently couldn’t stop talking about) my husband said, “Just write it down.” Prophetic words! With a lot of time on my hands since I was laid up, I took it to heart. Three weeks and fourteen hours a day later, I had a 450 page handwritten novel on my hands.

And so it began.

I am lucky to be married to the love of my life and we have one beautiful daughter. She was and continues to be perfect so I saw no reason for others!

I like kick-ass heroines and big stories. I like to read them and I like to write them. I like romance, adventure, a little mystery and happy endings. Romance is the perfect genre for me.

Some of my favorite authors are Judith McNaught, Suzanne Brockmann and Linda Howard, just to give you the top of the list. If you haven’t read these ladies, you’re missing out.

I wish I cooked and gardened and did all those other creative things, but I don’t. I love to read and love to cheer my kid on in soccer or softball or volleyball and any other sport that catches her fancy. I’m a big dog lover, with no offense to cats other than their fur just about kills me.

That’s me in a nutshell. Hope you enjoy one of my adventures as much as I enjoyed writing it!
