I have been fascinated by the development of the United States my entire life, so it's only natural that I write historical romances set in America. Having cut my teeth on Bonanza and the Little House on The Prairie books,I am the proud owner of the entire Zane Grey western collection (some first editions!). I followed the route of the Santa Fe Trail on a cross-country road trip, although I went considerably faster than the wagon trains used to, and I use my writing as an excuse to tour the west as much as possible. I live in an eclectic college town in Ohio with my puppy-mill rescue dog, Mary.
I like to do things that involve taking a lot of little pieces and putting them together to make a whole. It started with jigsaw puzzles. Then, I graduated to quilts, and finally, fiction writing, specifically, romances.
