I have been writing since I began publishing a family newspaper in the third grade. I live in central Texas, where I work as a legal assistant and part-time dance teacher. When the boys were young, I wrote several non-fiction articles, a couple of which were published in periodicals---many of which were not. A few years later when an idea came to me for a story for my favorite television series, I tried my hand at script-writing. Although I never could get the studio to look at my tv scripts, I eventually had an idea for a screenplay and ran with it. A kind and nurturing literary agent took me under his wing, gave me encouragement, and peddled my screenplays around Hollywood. Though I didn't sell anything at the time, I have continued to write, and the stories from my screenplays are the foundation for three of my novels. The characters in my books have lived with me for so long that they seem very real to me and their stories make my heart smile---I hope they will yours, too.
