First there were crayon drawings in grade school, then books of space travel, mysteries and espionage. I've always carried stories in my head and written them down. In college, my aunt sent me a box of books, including Kathleen Woodiwiss' "The Flame and the Flower". I caught Romance fever and never looked back. Now with several books and awards to my credit, I continue to write and promote books that lift the Spirit. When I'm not writing, I enjoy needlework, bird watching, traveling, and jigsaw puzzles. I'm an avid fan of romance in all its variety, and my favorite diversion is a well-written book with a happy ending.
