I started spinning stories as a child when I tried to entertain my younger sister at night when we were supposed to be going to sleep. In the dark, my stories typically took on a scary or paranormal element -- didn't do much to put us to sleep. Today, I hope my stories still fail to put readers to sleep, but rather take them on a journey. That's what I've been on since I decided to make writing my focus. As a reporter and magazine feature writer, I truly enjoy learning as I work on stories. As a romance writer, I enjoy doing the research and following an evolving story of my characters. I'm still learning as I go.
Books have been important to me since I was young. My mom loved to read (still does) and she encouraged me to read as a child. By the time I was in seventh grade, I was making up my own stories and poems, exploring various styles of writing. Ah, the drama of junior high. I wouldn't go back to those days for anything! But reading voraciously and exploring different types of writing led me to romances. Writing romance challenges me. I love developing characters, figuring out what makes them tick. They take on a life of their own, surprising me and annoying me. But they also give me hope and inspire me to follow my dream. I want to write stories that make readers laugh and cry, give them hope, and encourage them to believe in the power of love.
