Every time I pick up a book, I know I’m going on a journey. Where that journey takes me can be mind-blowing.

I write historical romance and strive to infuse each character with the personal courage and commitment to take the journey of self-discovery that will make them worthy to love. How my characters arrive at their decisions continues to amaze me.

My background is as American as apple pie. I was born and raised in the Mid-west, graduated from the University of Michigan, and worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kenya.

Today my husband and I live in San Diego, the place of my heart, close to our beautiful children and grandchild.

Favorite things to do? Watch University of Michigan football and basketball, spend time over lunch with friends and travel to far off places.
