Like most authors, I didn't start out as a writer, but as a reader. My passion for romance novels began in my late teens and left me with an itch to discover the world. After living in places as culturally diverse as Athens, Greece and Cairo, Egypt (where I met and married my own romantic hero) we returned to the states and settled in the town of Sterling Forest, New York. From a very young age, I showed at aptitude for telling stories. Of course my mother called me a pathological liar, but I prefer to think back on those days as an apprenticeship for my future craft.

After the birth of my daughter, my husband suggested I take up writing as a hobby to fill my days. The hobby became a love, and the love an obsession. (Sometimes my husband is sorry he ever made that suggestion.) I learned how to write from the best—the authors who penned the books I spent countless hours reading. Although my writing allows my mind to soar in clouds, I have an energetic twelve year old who keeps my feet planted on the ground.
