About Me 

I started writing at an early age. But it wasn't until we bought our first computer in 2000 that I decided it was time to write the stories that had been bouncing around in my head. That first novel took over a year to write. The whole process was daunting and I might have given up but for one well-timed birthday gift. A friend gave me Danger In The Shadows by Dee Henderson. It was my first glimpse at Inspirational Romance and I was hooked. Not just as a reader. I knew this was my calling. As soon as I focused on the spiritual issues of my characters the words began to flow easily. 
     That's how Celtic Cross became a novel. I've received many, many cards and letters of praise for Celtic Cross, all of which inpire me to keep writing.
     I'm still writing. The first three novels, published with Xulon Press, are Western romances (click on My Books for more details). My fourth novel is a contemporary romantic suspense with a working title of She's Mine. I'm looking for the right publisher for this book. In the meantime, I enter it in contests. And, of course, I keep on writing. Click on WIP for more details about She's Mine and my other works in progress.
     When I'm not writing, I enjoy reading and gardening. My husband and I have a small farm in central New England where we grow and sell perennials. I have two children, a teenage daughter and a preschool son. As if that's not enough to keep me busy, I also work full time from home, selling supplies to veterinarians. In a former life - my twenties - I was a Veterinary Technician and for the past fifteen years I've been working as a customer service rep with a veterinary distributor. 
     Back when I started writing, the only thing I knew about the publishing industry was that it's really hard to get a book published. Since then I learned about and American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW). I've had the opportunity to talk with other authors, published and unpublished, and even editors and agents. I recommend that anyone who wants to become a writer join at least one group related to the genre in which you write. Most important – get involved in a critique group or two.
