     From her futuristic novels to her contemporary romantic suspense, she's known for her independent heroines and those compelling alpha males we all adore.
     After turning in her twelfth manuscript, she came to the realization that this writing gig might just work out after all. She continues to dream up stories, keeping no less than ten story ideas circulating at any given time.


Q: Tell us about yourself.

A: Let's see. I'm double jointed, I'm a math geek, and if you don't believe me I'll do a spreadsheet to prove it to you. But most of all, I love to tell stories. Oh, and I'm funny. LOL. One of my goals in life is to make people laugh.

Q: How do you get in the mood to write?

A: I'd say it isn't as much a mood as a need. I have no less than ten story ideas floating in my head at one time, and when dialogue and scenes build up, they need to escape. I merely sit down and let them out. I guess it's fair to say I'm always in the mood to write.

Q: Do you write every day? Stick to a rigid schedule?

A: I try to write every day, but life gets in the way (hey, check it out, I made a rhyme. Hee, hee!). I don't stick to a rigid writing schedule unless I'm on a deadline. If something is due, I put butt in chair and fingers on keyboard until I'm finished.

Q: Where do your story ideas come from?

A: This is the question I get asked most often as a writer. My story ideas come from absolutely everywhere. I never know when a newspaper article, movie, television show, commercial, or a conversation between strangers ahead of me in a line will spark an idea for a story.
     For example, I thought up the premise of Just A Kiss while watching The Tonight show with Jay Leno.

Q: What is your favorite way to relax?

A: Relax? Is that even an option? I must write! Okay, okay in between writing books, I love to read and I adore going to the movies. I also watch way too much television since my cable company invented a way to record shows to watch later. Occasionally, I hang out with my family. They are pretty cool and very funny because a good sense of humor is a strict requirement in my household.
