I've been a self-employed working novelist for the past twenty years. Thanks to e-publishing, my titles are for sale all over the world, and so far, in English, Spanish and German.
I also make jewelry and I'm a fine needlework artist, specializing in embroidery, thread crochet, and sewing. I love to cook, read, entertain friends, decorate, and pursue various crafts.
I live in the Pacific Northwest near the Columbia River, still within 10 miles of my old high school. I have one Great Pyrenees dog and an old girl I rescued from the shelter who's kind of blind and a little hard of hearing, and one cat. My chickens all went to that great coop in the sky so replacements will be in the offing after we reinforce their worldly coop here in February. My hours are kind of goofy--I'm just not a morning person and tend to be up late when the rest of the world is sleeping--and QUIET. No phones, faxes, distractions. Just the kids and me, candles burning, and the elevator music coming out of my iPod.
Before I made the leap to full-time writer, I spent about 12 years working for consulting civil engineers. Riprap, anyone? How about a nice detention pond?

Very pleasant read, as all Harrington's romances are. Has a nice twist on a standard romance trope--the common "she's always been a bit obsessed with him" is present, but not in its usual form. I enjoyed how the forced marriage plays out, with her worrying about when or how he'll "claim his rights," and him devoted to not pushing her limits. (But of course, not actually *saying* that to her, because why would he *talk* to the woman he's planning on spending the rest of his life with?) Their travel arrangements are grueling, and and the sheer distance they cover while trying to get away from their past is daunting to consider. The way they manage to resolve their differences and make a life together, away from everything they've known, is lovely. I always enjoy it when the woman in a romance puts her foot down and say "stop being an ass! We're here, together; COPE with that!"
