From the moment I stepped into my first school library I became enthralled with the idea that wonderful stories resided in all those books. The enchantment never faded. Amazing worlds full of adventure and history were mine for the reading. The imaginary characters living in my imagination were nothing unusual—obviously a great many people lived with stories in their heads and were kind enough to share them. That I could also share my tales and actually write a book wasn’t something I considered until quite recently, but I finally began writing seriously about six years ago. The first books were written in collaboration with my sister, Diana. (“Lord Waring’s Quest” and “An Angel for St. Clair”). Our interests have diverged at present and I now write independently under my own name. Married for many years to my own personal hero, a doting grandmother and fond parent, when not writing I enjoy puttering in my garden, cooking, and relaxing on the back porch of our Florida home—with a good book, of course!
