A closet writer in my youth, I set aside my passion when life presented me with a John Wayne husband and two wonderful children. A career in logistics offered me the opportunity to travel to many beautiful cities in America, and I use those locations when writing dark, gritty romantic suspense novels.
I write alpha males and kick-ass women with a hint of humor. They weave their way through death and fear to emerge stronger because of, and on occasion in spite of, their love for each other.
Whether my hero is a member of our nation’s military, the FBI, CIA, or a Sheriff in a backwater Texas county, he’s intelligent, aggressive, and hard-headed. He fights injustice, lives life on the edge, and when he falls in love…it’s forever. Much to his surprise, he needs a woman who can think for herself.
My heroine is not afraid to stand shoulder to shoulder with her man and fight for her beliefs – a woman, who loves life, sex, and laughter – a woman who struggles through the dark times and pulls her man, sometimes kicking and screaming, into her heart.
My first book, THE GREEN-EYED DOLL released in 2012. THE LAST EXECUTION and SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME (my short story) released in June 2013. HELL OR HIGH WATER book 1 of the Lost and Found, Inc. series released July 2013 and COLD DAY IN HELL will be out soon.
I continue to hone my craft, write what I love, and hope my readers love the stories I write. I live in Texas, love sunshine, children’s laughter, sugar (human and granulated), and researching for my books.
I had to share a picture of Buddy with you. He was a throwaway and somehow made it to our yard. He’d been bitten by a much bigger dog. In fact, poor Buddy couldn’t lift his head. But after the vet fixed him up, we brought him home and gave him some loving care. A rescued dog that found a permanent home…all ten pounds of him.
Come back often and share my journey into the world of publishing. You are, after all, why I write.
