I am a storyteller, a wordsmith, a romantic.
I read a lot…adore Victoriana…collect tchotchkes…stockpile ephemera…and own up to being a native Texan, most of the time.
Ireland is my most favorite place on earth, and I’m crazy about all things Irish.
I love these things…
Sitting on the porch.
Traveling back roads.
Meeting new people.
Walking my dogs.
Watching movies and sipping wine with my husband.
Most of all, I enjoy weaving emotional stories with satisfying endings.
I’m an Air Force daughter and Army wife, a one time-Department of Army Civilian, mother/grandmother, antiques dealer, teacher, former mayor’s wife, and sometimes-church pianist.
I write full time–mostly romance (love those happy endings), some short stories, articles, and a bit of non-fiction stuff.
My husband and I live in a little unincorporated Texas town called Rose Hill with our four legged kiddos — Buster, a mouthy Maltese, and Finnegan Mac Cool, a giant-sized Old English sheepdog. They love running in our huge yard. Our hot, humid Texas summers, not so much.
View from the Front Porch is an eclectic blending of all of the things I love sprinkled with guest bloggers.
Thanks for visiting. Stop by often.
