Many years, rejections, pizzas, tears, candy bars, and hours of writing later, my third manuscript caught the attention of Steve Hutson at Word Wise Media. Today he’s my agent. I’m still waiting for that elusive book contract, but in the mean time I keep writing. I write contemporary and speculative fiction stories with a healthy dose of romance, but I’ve also expanded my repertoire. I write feature stories for the local paper, copy material for businesses, and blog posts for myself and others. I even edit – offering copy editing, fiction editing, and critiques through Write Now Editing Services.

When I’m not reading, writing, or editing, I enjoy cooking and baking. I play the piano and sing (the key of E, please). I kayak with my husband in the summer, watch football in the fall (Go Blue!), and enjoy Christmas lights all winter long. Shy but extroverted, I adore my nieces and nephew and love spending time with my family. And someday, my books will be on a book shelf near you.
