I began writing romance novels in 1991 while balancing my career as a wood products manufacturing manager. I often joined the troops in the factory, working on sanders, drills, and saws. It gave me time to "talk" to the characters in my head and figure out what they would do next. In 2001 I switched careers and now work for a CPA firm as an accounting assistant, specializing in payroll.
I have completed 14 novels while staying active in 2 writing groups, serving on the Boards of Directors several times, and a number of conference committees. But the best part was the life-long friendships I've formed with so many writers, published and unpublished.
My first published novel, KALEIDOSCOPE, won 2nd place in the 2003 WisRWA Write Touch Readers' Award for published authors. My second book, WAY OUT WEST, won the prestigious New Jersey Romance Writers' 2003 Golden Leaf Award for Short Contemporary. WAY OUT WEST was also a finalist in the 2004 Virginia Romance Writers' HOLT Medallion Awards.
My current novels are APRIL'S FOOL and HIS BROTHER'S BABY. I also have a non-fiction humor book, BORN TO BITCH, chronicling life's little annoyances.
