I'm a New Englnder by birth and an Ohioan by choice. I followed the man I love. My husband and I make our home in a small, rural community and my children are scattered throughout the U.S. By day, I work with Special Education students, by night, I'm a writer and in between, I read, read, read.

She speaks to me and I begin to see her in my mind, what she looks like, where she's from, what she was like as a girl. She's not a lttle girl now and she has a story to tell.
That's where the adventure begins because while I know where my character is going, I'm never quite sure how she'll get there. It's hard work slogging through life to get to happily ever after, but unlike many of my characters, I'm a romantic at heart and I believe...
