Born in Jackson, Michigan, my mother taught me to read when I was four. I remember reading to my kindergarten class and living at the library, hence my love of books began. Then when I was thirteen I discovered romance novels (I know, too young to be reading Johanna Lindsey!). But I did, and I’ve been in love ever since.
About sixteen, I was so in awe of romance authors that I dreamed of giving another person the same wonder and happiness that reading gave me. So I started writing and continued reading, falling in love with Susan Elizabeth Philips, Toni Morrison, and Diana Gabaldon. I finished college getting a degree in Accounting. Then, at twenty-five, a story I was dreaming about stuck in my head and wouldn’t let go.
