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. I have a new treasured book, "Heart's Blood"
by Juliet Marillier (which I've only read twice, so far). 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.)

thoughts and journeys, or keep current with any news I have

My Magical Best,

This is my old Chihuahua,
Baggins, who loves to
smile for pictures. She's
got more character than
one little dog should.
Baggins continues to
bounce, burrow and bark,
despite her age!

AUTHOR BIO
My little rescue puppy, Pikachu. She's
a Chihuahua mix, and had a rough
start in life, barely escaping
euthanasia. She is one of the sweetest,
most darling dogs I have ever owned.
She loves to lay her face across my
neck to beg for kisses. If you're
looking for a new dog, please check
out my blog entry about Pikachu:
My little Yorkshire Terrier,
Champagne. I found her in a puppy
shop, almost a year old. She had a
long history of kennel cough, which is
why I imagine she'd never been
adopted. I had to take her home. Her
favorite thing to do is play with
Pikachu outside, tearing across the
grass in a blur, barking at the birds,
finding sticks to bring in the house and
chew up. She's now joyfully free and
healthy.
