I love great stories. Writing them and reading them. I'm talking about the kind of stories that get your insides so wound up in an ooey gooey mess that you forget about the laundry and all the other un-fun stuff in life.
I have an active imagination and writing seems to be the safest place to unleash it. When I was little, I dreamed about writing for a soap opera because, let's face it, how cool would it be to kill off a character, only to bring that person back weeks later wth a new face and some far-fetched, yet oddly believable, explanation?
Unfortunately, the soap opera gig never panned out. Instead, I spent 20 years as a TV newscaster and reporter, but I've quietly continued to pursue my passion for writing young adult and contemporary romance novels. It's the ooey gooey mess that will always be my first true love.
