Happily married to my best friend.
Aug 2009

I've worked in public relations for three years and seventeen years as an educator, eleven of those as a principal.  My love affair with books began as soon as I could sit up. My mother named me after the heroine from the book she was reading at the time of my birth. As a young girl I practically lived at the library, so much so that the librarians would have books set aside for me when I visited, which was almost daily.  I began writing stories as a pre-teen, and fell in love with Pride and Prejudice and Mistress of Mellyn.  Although I continued to write, I got side-tracked by necessity while raising my three sons.  I began writing again after the boys grew up and have now completed three novels.
