I always knew that I wanted to be a writer, even when I had no idea what I wanted to write! Even when the idea of being a writer boiled down to a kind of half-imagined childhood fantasy of growing up to be a woman who wore big necklaces and gauzy dresses. (which I don’t do…but at the time, it seemed like the thing to aspire to!)
Even when I wasn’t writing seriously, I was harassing my friends and relatives with nonsensical email stories starring them and various characters from Lord of the Rings.
I was distracted from writing for a while between college and meeting the man of my dreams, my own personal tall dark handsome hero, and getting married and starting our family. Then, when I was pregnant with our second child I picked up my first romance novel.But it was when I found my first Harlequin Presents at a thrift store that I really fell in love with the genre. And that was when I knew what I wanted to write.
Nearly two years after writing and submitting my first ever full manuscript I got The Call from Harlequin Mills and Boon. I am truly happy to say that I am now a Harlequin Presents author!
I live in the wilds of Southern Oregon with my gorgeous, diaper-changing husband, our two little boys, our baby girl, and our anti-social cat.
