Originally from Minnesota, I now live in Upstate South Carolina and enjoy retirement. My husband, Mike, is a retired US Air Force Chief Master Sergeant and is loving life with the year-round golfing! We have a pup, Missy, a Belgian Malinois-German Shepherd mix, who keeps us busy and entertained. They are an inspiration, a distraction, and my life.
I served 12 years active duty in the US Air Force. Ultimately, I worked in the federal civil service, beginning with the Department of Veterans Affairs, on to the US Air Force, a fun stint with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, and ending back at the VA. All told, serving thirty years in federal service and loved every minute of it.
I write romance stories...rather steamy ones. Some with a touch of suspense. I’ve found inspiration in where I’ve lived, what I’ve done/experienced, and hobbies I enjoy. In the midst of writing a story, I love it when my characters take hold of the plot and own it!
