Location Seattle, WA
Introduction I grew up on a farm in Missouri. Since then I've lived all across the U.S. from Kealakekua in Hawaii to the Bronx in New York. Jobs have been equally wide-ranging including nurses’ aid, repertory theater actress, stockings clerk at Macy’s in Manhattan, waitress at the Kailua-Kona Hilton on the Big Island of Hawaii, weekly newspaper publisher in Kansas, advertising salesperson for The Los Angeles Times, elementary school para-educator and administrative assistant. I now live in White Center just minutes from Seattle, and I'm a Washington Native Plant Steward. My contemporary romances, "Special Delivery" and "Big Bad Wolfe," were both published by Wings ePress. You can read excerpts from the novels and interviews with the author at either of the first two links below.
