She lives in Philadelphia with her husband and is an avid fan of her hometown sports teams.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spent a lot of my time outside. I'm a total summer baby and I love to be outdoors. Hiking and running are two of my favorite things to do. I'm also a huge sports fan (hockey & football are my favorites, but I like baseball & basketball too), so I watch a lot of games. And of course, reading! I read at least a book a week. I also work as a professional voice over artist, so part of my day is spent in the recording booth.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I've always been a reader. And books always impact me. I'm super emotional and will get attached to fictional characters.
But the first romance novel I read was Nora Roberts' MacGregor Brides. I fell in love with her writing and with the genre. (Being a hopeless romantic may have something to do with that...)
