My   novels revolve around two of my very different passions.

First, the PBR (Pro Bull Riding.)  It is currently the fastest growing sport in America. I’m drawn to the graceful athleticism and drama – it’s like a dangerous ballet.  Besides, what woman can resist a cowboy?  Not me – I married a ‘bleed maroon’ Texas Aggie  twenty seven years ago.

I am represented by Nalini Akolekar of Spencerhill Associates.  My Sweet on a Cowboy series is published by Grand Central. First in the series, The Sweet Spot, won the 2014 RITA award for Best First BookMy ‘biker chick’ book, Her Road Home, found a home at Harlequin’s Superromance . which expanded to a four book series.

I’ve recently moved into the Women’s Fiction Genre, and my first, Days Made of Glass, is now available.

Quirks?  I can be a bit obsessive.  I ride 100 miles on my bicycle a week.  I sit down to write at three am – every day.

Other hobbies/obsessions:  Camping, fly fishing, sewing, knitting, along with my first love, reading.

All these, coupled with a pant-load of colorful life experiences blend to my voice: funny, irreverent, and not afraid to dig into tough subject matter.
