I live in the beautiful Northern Arizona mountains with my clever husband, charming kids, and an incredibly sassy cat. After many years and several colleges, I managed to obtain my Bachelor’s Degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing from the University of Washington.

My books are mixed-genre mysteries full of mayhem and fun, romance and comedy, and whatever else feels right. Sisters in Crime was kind enough to let me join their membership years ago. In addition, I’ve been a member of Romance Writers of America for so many moons that I’ve lost count.

I have written a bunch of contemporary, award-winning novels in multiple series full of quirky characters who I love to spend time with as much as reality allows. Right now, while you’re reading this, I’m probably frolicking around in another story.

While my reading preferences range from adventure to horror to mystery, ever since I tried on my first training bra, I have loved a good mix of romance, too.

When I’m not dabbling in fiction, I’m penning writing-themed articles or standing on my workshop soapbox, sharing what I have learned over the years about the craft and self-promotion.
