 What should I say about myself? Well, I am the mother of four and still raising kids. I have worked in factories and yes, I have cleaned bathrooms as a job. When I became a Realtor I found my niche in the workplace. I love walking into houses and discovering the secrets that some homes can tell. Look at a kitchen doorway and you might be lucky enough to see the small nicks in the wood from parents measuring a child each year. I could go on and on, but this is a bio not a book.

 I have been an avid reader since I first read the book Gone With The Wind at age nine. I didn’t understand it completely at that time, but I thought Rhett got a bad deal. But then I am a sucker for a happy ending. I have been writing short stories for years and always wanted to send my writings in to a publisher. The problem? I write what real people say. I describe my love scenes and sex scenes in explicit modern language. (Although I do love a historical romance.) I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them. My first series for Siren-BookStrand is the At The Lake series. Dizzy’s Story is the first, then Jane’s Story and last, but more intense, is Morgan’s Story.

Q: Where do you get your ideas for a book?

A: People watching inspires me. Lake Michigan. In the mall. The doctor’s office. I see people and if they catch my attention I create a life in my mind for them.

Q: What does your family think about you writing erotica?

A: My husband likes it. And my adult children are very supportive. They are also my worst critics. So when I let my characters get out of hand, the kids tell me to put them back where they belong. I confess that I giggle when I send them certain chapters to review for me. Ha! Those are the fun days when I get the phone call, “Mom, where on earth did you learn that?”

Q: What is your writing schedule?

A: I am an insomniac. I write when everyone is in bed and it is quiet. I put on my headphones, listen to music, and write. Sometimes I am up all night writing. I'll take a break and bake something or toss a load of laundry into the washer then go back to my computer. My family gets grumpy when they hear me laughing while I am writing and they are sleeping.

Q: You often write about Lake Michigan, what’s the fascination?

A: All you have to do is watch a storm moving inland over the lake to answer that. In the winter, ice encases the lighthouses and the piers become thick sculptures. Simply beautiful.

Q: Do you only write series books?

A: No. I write what my characters tell me to write. Some of my secondary characters run amuck and wake me up during my four hour sleep sessions to tell me I need to write a story for them. That's when I end up with a series. I never start out thinking that this will be a series.

Q: Who is your favorite Author?

A: Dr. Suess, anything he wrote is golden to me.

Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing?

A: My characters begin to run in different directions as their personalities emerge. I am working on a full-length novel right now where the primary characters became secondary. And now? Well, I will let the readers decide.
