As far back as I can remember, I've had my nose buried in a book. I remember anxiously awaiting Santa to bring me a typewriter in order to write my first book. But before I could reach for my dreams, my life took a detour. I moved around a bit before settling into the position of statistician by day and wife/mother by night. Each new life adventure added fodder for my fertile imagination. Through it all, I never lost sight of my dream. When at last I had the opportunity to once again put pen to paper, I couldn't stop. As an unpublished writer, I've gone on to win/final in nearly two dozen contests including Harlequin's "So You Think You Can Write" Contest (2-time finalist), Finally A Bride (winner), and Linda Howard Award of Excellence (finalist). I currently reside in Pennsylvania with my very patient husband, one amazing daughter (the other remarkable daughter has flown the coop to chase her own dreams) and two spoiled rotten cats. When I'm not glued to my laptop (which isn't often) or enjoying some family time, I like reading, cross-stitch, embroidery, quilting, knitting, hockey (Go Pittsburgh Penguins!), and gardening. I love to hear from readers. Please contact me via my Contact Page.
