My Story

I love books! I love reading them, I love writing them, I love shopping for them, looking at them, thinking about them – I love books! I think I was born with this obsession. My mother says that the only reason I wanted to start school at age 5 was so I could learn to read, and that I was pretty ticked off when the teacher expected me to learn other things like how to count and how to add and subtract.
It is an exciting time in my life, now that my children are grown and I have retired from my previous job of running the construction company my husband and I owned. I am spending my days crafting stories in my head and writing them down, which still leaves plenty of time to curl up and read books written by my favorite authors!

I am married and I’m the mother of 3 grown children. I love to read, and I gravitate toward books that fall into my three S’s category: scary, suspenseful or supernatural. I do read some romance or the occasional cozy mystery to cleanse the palate, but where my reading material is concerned, I’m a bit blood-thirsty!

I’m an animal lover and I used to work in dog rescue. I have four undisciplined, naughty dogs who fight for space under my desk while I work.
