I grew up in the Detroit-area and have lived in Farmington Hills and Portage (Michigan), Sedalia (Missouri) as well as a brief stint in Chicago-land. I've been a Parks & Recreation supervisor, an inventory clerk for a flute store, and a long-time volunteer for Girl Scouts. My last job was for an oil and gas exploration company where I discovered the cure for insomnia—reading oil and gas leases. My longest-running gig was as a teacher where I taught elementary and middle school for over 10 years. I met my own hero on a blind date. It was love at first sight--for me. It took him a little longer. We currently reside in West Michigan, close to our two grown children and five grandchildren.
I am a member of Romance Writers of America and the Mid-Michigan, Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal, and Kiss of Death chapters of RWA. I'm also a member of Sister in Crime (SinC). I am the author of the Switched series about twins exchanging places--from Earth to a starship and the reverse. The Outer Rim series is about strong women on the frontier of space. I also write romantic suspense, One Red Shoe and Numbers Never Lie plus the Alex O’Hara mysteries. I'm a contributor to two anthologies, How I Met My Husband, and Portals (Volume 2), a gateway to the world of science fiction romance.
I'm a regular contributor to The Roses of Proseblog (16th & 30th of each month) and Paranormal Romantics (on the 13th) blog. On the 3rd Wednesday) of each month, I write about Family Life on Pandora's Box Gazette, On my own blog, I write about whatever catches my fancy--baseball, the Mama Mallard nesting under my living room window, current events, my grandkiddies. On weekends on my own blog, I join the Weekend Writing Warriors (#WeWriWa) and share snippets of published works or works-in-progress.
In my spare time LOL, I read, binge-watch old TV shows and movies, and "supervise" my husband's landscaping. The most fun, though, is playing with the grandkiddies.
