A bit about me…
I grew up in small town Oklahoma but have lived in Texas for over thirty years. Once upon a time I worked as a newspaper journalist, as a public relations director for a university, and other assorted things but these days I am an award winning, multi-published author.
I like writing that is hot, edgy, and often humorous, and try to put this trademark stamp on all of my stories. I live in west Texas with my husband of 27 years and counting and I am a doting, fawning, and over-indulgent mom to my two kids.
When I’m not penning steamy erotic tales or hot contemporary stories, I indulge in long chats with friends who help me stay sane and keep me laughing. Wanna be my friend forever? Make me laugh.
