Currently I live in the mountains of North Carolina, where I've set some of my favorite stories. I'm what the locals call a half-back. That's someone who lived up north, moved to Florida, then came halfway back. I'm kind of like Goldilocks - northern Michigan was too cold, Key Largo Florida was too hot, but this area is just right year round.
I have kids who are horrified at the idea of reading any of my erotic romance novels. Frankly, that's just as well. I wouldn't be able to write some of the scenes I do if I thought my kids would be reading them. I also have a good-natured black Lab and three cats, all strays that we rescued, who could care less what I write as long as they get fed on time.
Over the years, I've had a number of jobs including owning a restaurant, a food concession at Miami Arena, two real estate companies and working as an interior designer at Ocean Reef in the Keys. That one was my favorite. I got to decorate multi-million dollar homes using someone else's money!
I love playing in the garden, traveling, scuba diving, reading, and cooking.
