Is it terrible to admit I wrote my first piece of fiction to impress a girl? Well, it’s true. And although I achieved my goal, what’s more important is what happened because of that—I developed an addiction to telling stories.

Though my love for writing in high school where I wrote both news and feature articles for the school paper (The Art of Skipping was my favorite), unfortunately, my writing slowly faded into the background when I stepped away from such a nurturing environment and confronted the realities of life. GPA’s, school loans, early morning alarms, and late-night dinners, commutes from hell, heart-stopping love, marital bliss, dirty diapers, mortgages, soccer league president, scholarship applications, and everything else that induce follicle disembarkation and enlarged prostates.

Hang on, I’m getting ahead of myself (bad plotting). Let’s back up. I grew up in a military family and around most of the east coast and the southeast US, ultimately graduating with a Business degree from Louisiana State University. It wasn’t until our three children had flown the coop I found myself with enough spare time for "the itch" to return. All it took was a sprinkle of attention and the warmth of my interest to rekindle this decade's old love—and the best part is now I get to share it with you.

I split my writing time now between YA and Adult Mystery/Suspense.
