The second of five children, I spent my childhood making up stories and acting them out with my sisters. Together with our menagerie of stuffed animals, we overpowered bad guys, righted wrongs, and made the world a better place. When I wasn't engaged in imaginative play, I lost myself in the lives and adventures of Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and Trixie Belden. It wasn't long before I discovered my mother's gothic romances and became an ardent fan of romantic suspense.

Today I'm a busy mom of five. When I'm not homeschooling my children or trying to keep up with endless piles of laundry, I still enjoy losing myself in a good book. And I still love making up stories. Armed with a laptop, ten fingers, and my God-given imagination, I overpower bad guys, right wrongs, and make the world a better place for my characters.
