I’m a writer. A reader. A mom. A traveler. A music fanatic. I take pictures, (though not as much as I used to.) I snore like a freight train and have uncontrollable hair. I love belly-laughs and drink gin cocktails in the summer.
I am far wittier online.
I tell stories because I think stories are important. I’ve been doing it full time for seven years now, and I still can’t quite figure out how I’m getting away with that.
I love my job, and I love happy endings, but I don’t believe they’re easy to attain. Probably, they shouldn’t be.
I was born in Central California, went to school at the University of Houston, traveled the world a bit, moved back to California, and I’m here to stay… for now. I have a very large and very crazy family. I am a farmer’s daughter.
I have one precocious son who is taller than me now, a fiance on the other side of the planet (it’s interesting), a labrador with a fetching addiction, and a Standard poodle named Charlie. I do travel with her occasionally.
I enjoy bowling, and make Lebowski references in everyday conversation. I have a rug that really ties the room together. I love music on a very deep, and possibly somewhat disturbing, level. I like odd numbers, not even. And tattoos. The number thirteen and Asian food.
Someday, I will learn how to scuba dive.
And maybe hang glide, but that looks like a lot of running.
I write paranormal and contemporary romance because I think love and relationships are worth writing about.
