I graduated from Samford University with a degree in pharmacy, but all my life I knew that I wanted to write a novel some day. For me, some day came in 2003, when I started writing and never looked back.

My first two manuscripts remain firmly ensconced in the back of my closet (the dust bunnies tell me they really are terrific!). My third attempt became my first published novel, A Promise to Remember.

In the past few years, I have changed my focus and started writing something I vowed never to write—historicals! The amount of research required has always kept me far away from this genre, but after a family visit to St. Petersburg in 2017 I just couldn’t help myself. I hope you like the results.

On the home front, I’ve been married to the wonderful and handsome Lee for over thirty years. We are learning to enjoy the empty-nester phase of life as our two adult daughters have flown the nest. I’m hoping this means more travel and more book ideas in the future.
