Write about what you know. I've taken this advice to heart, creating characters who live in small towns and plots that unfold in the great outdoors.
I grew up in Gasquet, a tiny town in Northern California, where as kids we swam in the river, ran wild in the woods, and rode our bikes everywhere we wanted to go. Now I live in Tahoe City with my husband, two daughters, and dog, Ginger. When I'm not busy writing or being a full time mom, I enjoy taking Ginger for hikes in the woods around our home.
Whether I'm writing romantic suspense, contemporary, or historical romance, I try to bring the beauty of nature to my stories.
I graduated from U.C. Davis with a double major in history and creative writing. Though I've worked in both the restaurant and ski industries, I never wanted to be anything but a writer. After many years of pursuing my passion, I've finally achieved success with the publication of VICTIM OF DESIRE and my CLASS OF '85 stories, proof positive that dreams do come true!
