I'm a college grad and business owner, and have published nearly a dozen short stories in the SFF/Romance genre, receiving Honorable Mention twice in the 'Writers of the Future' contest (read more on the Awards page). Being an Air Force brat, I traveled a great deal, and over the years I've lived in Guam, Okinawa, and several states in the U.S. I currently live in Arizona with my husband, two sons, and the rest of my wonderful family.

I'm addicted to reading, chocolate, and shopping (in that order). I have two chihuahuas named Precious and Baggins (think Lord of the Rings) who I'm rather goofy about, so I included a couple of pictures of them below.

Some of my favorite authors include: Andre Norton, Patricia McKillip, Robin Hobb, Dave Duncan, Mary Brown, Emily Bronte, Jane Austen, Jude Deveraux, Johanna Lindsey, Barbara Michaels, Anne McCaffrey, Donna MacQuigg...the list goes on!

A few books that I continue to read over and over are "Saving Grace" by Julie Garwood, "The Hob's Bargain" by Patricia Briggs, "The Hero and the Crown" by Robin McKinley, "Soulstring" by Midori Snyder, "Sorcery and Cecelia" by Wrede & Stevermer, and "The Shape-Changer's Wife" by Sharon Shinn. Such awesome stories!

A proud member of the Romance Writers of America, I belong to the Desert Rose and the Valley of the Sun chapters. (For another list of some of my favorite authors, visit the chapters from my Links page.)

My Magical Best,

I love to hear from readers, so please don't hesitate to email me.
The one on the left is Baggins, who loves to smile for pictures. She's got more character than one little dog should. Baggins bounces, burrows and barks!
The one on the right is Precious, who's the smartest dog I've ever owned. Her hair is long and fluffy, and she's every bit a lady!
