I was born in Northern California and spent most of my growing up years in Los Angeles. My first husband and I moved to Houston, Texas with our two young sons in the early 1970's. I was widowed in 2004 after my first husband's long and courageous battle with lung cancer. I am now remarried and my wonderful husband, Steve, and I live on a little farm in Southeast Texas. I began writing when I was just a little girl. My little sisters were my first critics, snuggling beside me at bedtime while I read my newest work to them. A Wink at Midnight is my first novel.
