Writing for me is as natural as breathing and as indispensable. The stories unfold endlessly, begging to be told . . .
I have lived in Illinois from the day I was born, from the far southern to the northwestern suburbs of Chicago with some stops in between. My husband, Steve, and I now live in the near northwest suburbs with our two cats, Misty and Mira.
While I have loved to write since I first learned how to put words on paper, it came second to a career in Information Technology for many years. Around 2004, as I again felt the pull to create fiction, I asked myself "if not now, when?" The answer was to delve into finishing a novel started almost twenty years prior. When I believed it to be ready, I began sending queries to literary agents. That's when my education in the world of publishing really began, and boy, did I have a lot to learn!
After many, many rejections on that first and a few subsequent novels, my work found a "home" in 2011 with Write Words, Inc., a small publisher of both ebooks as well as print under their Cambridge Books division. I have also dabbled in short stories and achieved some success with my entries in the Writers of the Future Contest. Now I have seven published novels under my belt with more on the way!
