Bio Picture

     Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I write contemporary stories about women's journeys and      contemoprary romance with enough spice to be fun and endings that feed my belief that this world is      a happy place. When not writing, I provide freelance editing services. I also love to scrapbook, when I      can get time away from my handsome he-can-fix-anything hubby and the gray cat, Dude, who      decided to own us.

     A devoted reader, I have immersed myself in the diverse works of authors like Tolkien and Woodiwiss. I am passionate about every aspect of a book: beginning, middle, and end. I can't arrive to a movie five minutes late, have never been able to read the end of a book before the beginning, and am a strong believer in reading the book before seeing the movie.
