My family: I have young kids, who are perfectly, perfect And I might mention that I’m one of six siblings in a wonderful, blended family. Holidays are CRAZY.
My most embarrassing moment: In high school, falling down an entire flight of steps and landing at the feet of the three hottest boys in the school. Dreadful.

You would never believe: That I was completely paralyzed for a short time just a few years ago, suffering from Guillian-Barre. Please see my special page just for GBS.
I started writing romance because: I’d studied books and literature for a very long time. I wanted to see if I could write one, instead of ripping it apart for analysis. I found that it’s much more fun to create. And much more difficult.
What is the most important element to a romance novel: I think readers want to fall in love with the hero and heroine. If they don’t like the characters, they won’t like the story.
