My journey as a writer began when I turned 30, my youngest started kindergarten, and I went back to college. I took a class on fiction writing and the author was born--except it wasn't a direct route to publishing my novels. I took a 15-year detour as a photojournalist specializing in agriculture. Twenty years later I published my first book, but it wasn't the romance novel I'd anticipated--it was a children's book. Three more children's books have followed and now, finally, my first romance. This book is near and dear to my heart as Emma reflects all my years in agriculture and more than a decade sitting on the bleachers watching my children play baseball.
