I am a storyteller, a wordsmith, a romantic.
I was an Air Force daughter then Army wife. I’m a mother of three and grandmother to twelve. I’ve been a Department of Army Civilian secretary to a general, antiques dealer, teacher, former mayor’s wife, and sometimes-church pianist.
I have three college degrees—Associate of Science, Bachelor (Magna Cum Laude), and Master of Education. I earned the first diploma fifteen years after high school graduation. Believe me, being a student while my three were also in school too offered lots of fun challenges, adventures, and misadventures.
I read a lot…love discovering new authors…adore Victoriana…collect tchotchkes…stockpile vintage postcards…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. That’s why Irish characters frequent my stories.
I write full time—mostly romance (love those happy endings), some short stories, articles, and a bit of non-fiction stuff. I also pen a weekly blog with my urban farmer daughter Chicken Wrangler Sara at “View from the Front Porch.”
My husband and I share a little house in a small, unincorporated Texas town called Rose Hill. Our mouthy-Maltese Buster and Finnegan Mac Cool, our Old English sheepdog, love running around in the big backyard or hopping in the car for trips to the weekly farmers’ market.
I love these things…
Traveling back roads.
Meeting new people.
Walking my dogs.
Bingeing Netflix series with my husband.
Most of all, I enjoy weaving emotional stories with satisfying endings. Sign up for my free newsletter to keep up with my latest news and subscriber-only sneak peaks.
