I grew up filling notebooks, and later little square computer disks, with words, and devouring as many books as I could as well. My tastes ranged from Nancy Drew to The Babysitter’s Club to Chronicles of Narnia. I read every Mary Higgins Clark and Victoria Holt book my small-town library had.
Today my writing and reading tastes are still scattered across a spectrum. My novels, Playing for Keeps, Double Play, and Love, Jane and the forthcoming Meant for You are contemporary romance novels, along with my novelette Goodnight Kiss and Wouldn’t it Be Nice, featured in the Timeless Romance Anthology: Road Trip Collection. My newest novel, Beneath the Bellemont Sky and my novellas A Lady and a Spy and A Contemptible Affection are historical romances. I’m currently querying a young adult, lite sci-fi titled, Kissing a Superhero and I’ve co-written with Kaylee Baldwin two YA contemporary romances that are Jane Austen retellings.
In a house overrun by boys, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love football and enjoy watching (and playing!) other sports as well, like basketball and baseball. Raising three rambunctious boys can sometimes cut in on both my writing and my real-life romance with my own Mr. Charming/Superhero, but I manage a little of both most of the time.
I love wearing flip-flops, cheering for my Cougars, and eating hamburgers and fries – but no pickles please!
