I was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, and for as long as I can remember I’ve loved books. Growing up, I wrote stories and plays and graduated with a degree in Journalism from Ohio University.
By then I’d also fallen in love with the mountains. After college I pointed my ancient Honda west until I came to Colorado. I worked on a dude ranch and then spent a few months camping through the southwestern part of the state until I found a real job and settled along the Front Range. Technically, I might have been homeless but that hardly seemed to matter while sleeping under the stars.
I began a decade-long career in Human Resources and traveled across the country for work. With my fear of flying, I needed something to distract me on all those planes. I picked up a Julia Quinn novel in an airport bookstore and was hooked. It dawned on me that the stories milling around in my head were actually romance plots. My passion for fiction writing was born.
I sold my first book in 2013 and have since written more than thirty stories of hope, healing and happily-ever-after. I have the best job in the world as well as the best family, which includes a patient husband, two darling (mostly) teenagers and a menagerie of misbehaved animals.
My family fills my heart and writing feeds my soul.
