I have many faces and am adept at juggling multiple priorities. I am a story teller at every opportunity, dreaming and writing blessings into my life since I learned to read at the age of five at grandpa’s side. Stories have a continual thread throughout every aspect of my life. I nurtured two amazing people to become phenomenal adults, my son Michael and daughter Brandy. I am working that same magic spell on my grandchildren, Harley and Hunter. I am a dreamer, whose dreams come true. I dreamed of an incredible man to share my life; two blonde, blue-eyed babies; and a horse farm in Kentucky filled with family, fun, critters, and laughter. I share my life with my hero, my strength, my loving and supportive husband, Mike. Whatever crazy adventure I conger up, he is right by my side. My diverse background brings a rare perspective and insight into everyday life, which plays out in my writing. I was born in the splendor of the Appalachian Mountains, the daughter of a coal miner, granddaughter of a Cherokee Indian. My father instilled in me, a strong work ethic and capability to achieve my goals. I grew up in the area, when the Mob reigned supreme in Newport, Kentucky and the city prospered as a mecca for gambling, prostitution and sin. I am fascinated with how history affects our lives today. I a free spirited adventurer and a fun loving gal, with workaholic tendencies. Writing romance is my passion. Several stories swirl in my head at any given time. I find myself, drifting off to sleep each night, as they brand themselves in my subconscious. They are eager to find their way onto my written pages. My current career is writing fiction. I have completed four romance novels. One is the first of a three part series. I have several others outlined. I have written for over thirty six years. I am a freelance writer, a member of RWA, KOD, HHRW, AW&A, OVRW, IRWA, AWP, NTRWA, MWRWA, and FTHRW. I have published consumer advertising copy, proposals, manuals, qualification programs, marketing copy, a newsletter, and articles in various Cincinnati area newspapers. I am experienced in writing, marketing, negotiations and global transportation. As Marketing and Logistics Manager at Procter & Gamble, I traveled the world, visiting exotic places, and negotiating multi-million dollar deals with heads of international shipping lines. My written proposals have influenced industries, changed foreign business policies, built fortunes, and sold millions to eager buyers. My career goal is to bring the danger and mystery of love to the world in written word.
