I have published three historical romance novels. “SONG OF THE WILLOW,” my first solo effort, was nominated by "Romantic Times Magazine" for best first historical. Life happens and I took a break to raise my children and edited scientific reports along the way. Now I’m back to what I really love, writing.
My current work, "HOW TO FELL A TIMBERMAN" is in the submission process. It’s a humorous historical set in the Pacific Northwest. The AX Men on the History Channel have nothing on the 1878 loggers in Whiskey Spit.
Born and raised in Iowa, I’ve lived in Arizona and Texas and currently reside in California with my husband. When I’m not writing and researching ways to bedevil my book characters, I enjoy collecting authentically costumed dolls from all over the world, travel (to seek more dolls), and read tons of books. Last but not least, I love cooking and eating ethnic foods, especially Asian cuisines. My current fave is green curry. Yum!
I’m a member of The Author’s Guild Inc, Romance Writers of America, and the Orange County Chapter of RWA. My favorite organization is my savvy critique group. You can read more about them at their author bio sites on this blog.
