I was born in historical Appomattox, Virginia. After graduating from high school, I joined the military and served five years in the active duty Army. After leaving, I decided to go into the Ohio Air National Guard where I retired as a Master Sergeant in 2011. In case you were wondering, I have never flown a plane. After getting lost to the recruiters office, I was highly discouraged from navigating one.
I admit, I am an avid Jane Austen fan and try to incorporate her in my books, in one way or another. This dream of writing, with Jane sometimes, is an exciting adventure that may take me as far as the stars or as close as my computer.
When I'm not writing, I'm spending time with my husband and two boys, ages 12 and 9. Without their sacrifice and understanding, I would have never been able to pursue my passion of writing or my accomplishment of becoming a published author.
No matter what I write and read, there ALWAYS has to be a happy ending.
Watching Jane Austen adaptations, watching football, movie night with my 9-year-old, watching mini drum concerts of my 12-year-old, rock-n-roll concerts (The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, etc.), and thinking of my next book.
