I am a traveler—it’s my favorite thing to do–well, besides reading. The culture shock of spending my childhood in Santa Fe, New Mexico, then moving with my family to the suburbs of Philadelphia hit me hard early on. I translated that experience into a strength (meaning, I didn’t speak in class for an entire year) and redeemed my high school and college years by studying in Europe—Denmark and Paris, respectively. You should see my journals from those days … or, erm, maybe not!

After receiving a degree in International Relations from USC, I entered the Navy—another opportunity for adventure—and learned to write and edit the vast amounts of paperwork required to keep that organization functioning like the well-oiled machine it has been for centuries.

Finding paperwork somewhat unrewarding (ironic, isn’t it?), I left the service several years ago to “settle down” with my own personal hero. We’ve traveled the world together, lived in Italy and South Korea, but returned home often enough to know that love really does make the world go ‘round. It was while touring in Italy that I began to write down the stories that had rattled around in my head for years.

Now, when I’m not spending ridiculous amounts of time at the computer dreaming up hot characters and spicy conflicts for my fiction writing, I love to ride my bike really fast and shop for shoes with my two daughters—heroines (and world travelers) in the making.

    I am so interested in the culture of Santa Fe, the light, the sky, the night sky – the colors of the high desert…

    I look forward to reading your space…
