I blame my mother for my fascination with books. Growing up in northern Indiana there wasn’t much to do and I’d often complained of my boredom. My mom handed me a book and told me to shush. I’ve been obsessed ever since. Though I spent most of my time in between the pages, fantasizing of other worlds, I didn’t write my first book until I’d had three children—just in time to have not a moment to myself. In an attempt to keep my sanity, I write. My favorite stories contain strong heroes and heroines, fighting an attraction stronger than both of them.
I live in eastern North Carolina with my husband and our three children in chaotic bliss.

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my page.
I'm a former Fire Chief from SC. I began writing at a very young age but never thought of pursuing it as a career. My passion was being a firefighter. After 18 years as a volunteer and 15 years as a career, I hung my Chief's helmet on a wall.
Now I spend my time writing a little and designing webpages. Both are hobbies and something I enjoy doing.
I do have a couple of books in the final stages and nearly ready for publication, but I'm trying to get them picked up by a publisher before I self-publish. I will give it a little more time, but if I can't come to good terms with a publisher soon, I will get my books out to share with you.

Scrivo dall'età di 19 anni: il mio primo romanzo (il mio preferito) è stato un fantasy, pur non essendo io una grande lettrice di questo genere.
Poi sono venuti i corti ed altri romanzi che si ispirano alla vita contemporanea.
Ho partecipato a qualche concorso letterario, ma non ne ho vinto nessuno.
Ho cercato allora di farmi conoscere dalle case editrici (grandi e piccole), anche passando per le agenzie letterarie. Le valutazioni erano solitamente buone, ma ho sempre rifiutato di pagare per essere pubblicata.

I started out in the 1970s as a National Park Service Ranger/Historian in Gettysburg, PA.

My first book was a children's book: The Little Drummer Boy. It won an award and boosted my confidence.

After a lifetime of various occupations, I have at last found my niche - creative writing. Although I enjoyed most of the things I have done over the years and am proud of my accomplishments, nothing has given me more pleasure than sitting at my computer and bringing characters to life. I don't create them; they simply speak through me. I have been able to incorporate many of my personal experiences into the stories I tell, but naturally there is a lot of dramatic license necessary to make the stories happen.
