I love to write. I discovered my passion for the written word in the third grade when I penned a patriotic poem about the United States. It wasn’t until my preteen years, while sneaking historical romances off my mom’s bookshelves to read during summer vacation, that I found my chosen genre. I’ve published 22 novels and counting, and I still get a thrill every time the words are flowing easily. Originally from Kentucky, I now live with my husband and three children in Northern California. Aside from writing, I also love to read, jog (never while reading), and take care of animals. We currently have a dog, a cat, and several rabbits living with us, but we also foster animals for our local shelter and can often be found with an extra dog (or in one memorable case, a pig) in the house.
Still Curious? Have burning questions you need answered?
Do you only write romance novels?
How long does it take you to write a book, anyway?
I’m envious of authors who have an easy answer for this, such as “three months.” I have written a novel in as little as a couple of months, and I have take a lot longer. I have one book that I’m still pecking away at after 3 years. Yeesh. My favorite thought on this topic is not my own, but that of a writer friend: “It takes me as long as the publisher contract says I have to write the book.”
Why is your website so jacked up?
I maintain it myself, and I far prefer writing books to posting stuff about them on the internet. This is a serious character flaw, but I’m working on it.
