I've been telling stories for as long as I can remember; my parents tell me it's been going on even further back than that and not always at the appropriate times. Now I choose to use my gift for good. I enjoy meeting new people, even if they're only in my head. I get a thrill coming up with unexpected and usually dangerous situations for my characters to be in and then thinking of extraordinary ways for them to escape with outcomes that deviate from the expected.
Things I Love - I love my Family; I love my Friends; I love my Country; I love the Men and Women of the Military—Past and Present—who put their lives on the line everyday to protect my family, and their families who sacrifice so much; I love to read, I love to write and I love the fact that I’m able to do both. I love the water, I love the snow, and I love to ski in both.
I live with my family in the Northeast where we enjoy white winters, balmy summers, a spring flurried with fragrant flowers, and a fall filled with piles of leaves to dive in to. Our small town offers the old world charm of knowing your neighbor and its location enables us to take off for dinner in a city known for its beautiful skyline or to an afternoon playing in the sand of some of the best beaches found in the United States.
I'm currently writing a series about THE Company, a private Security Firm whose main client is America. The men all met while in the military and now continue to do what they love to do with a lot less rules. My men are armed, dangerous, and full of secrets; the women they fall in love with are not the type to look away from a challenge, even if it's what the men want. While the men have the training to take on the enemies they face, the women have something just as important to help in the fight, inner strength.
For me, writing is relaxation for the soul and reading is its nourishment.
