In my mind I am always lounging on the beach, so it should be no surprise that my stories end up there, too. I write coastal-themed cozy mysteries with a romantic twist, because everything is better with a bit of love!
I have been an avid reader since childhood and credit my mom for introducing me to Trixie Belden and inspiring an enduring love of mysteries. As I got older, she added authors like Robin Cook, John Grisham, Michael Crichton, and Nora Roberts to the mix and I was hooked!
I always kept a flashlight in my nightstand so I could hide under the covers and read well past my bedtime. While I still love to stay up too late reading, the light on my Nook has replaced the flashlight (and my husband is thankful). ;-)
I’m a beach bum at heart, but I don’t get to spend quite as much time enjoying the beauty of the ocean as I would like. When not lounging along the shore (so, most days ;-) ), I spend my time split between my writing nook, my kitchen, my favorite reading spot, and wherever my family and friends are at the moment.
I married my amazing husband, Jon, over 13 years ago. He is my biggest cheerleader and my willing guinea pig for my messy first drafts. We have an adorable little fur-baby who would be happiest if I would spend less time in front of my computer and more time cuddling her!
Jon and I love spending time with family and friends, but at the end of the day, there is nothing we love more than curling up on the sofa in front of our well-loaded DVR. ;-)
