I grew up in northern Utah the oldest of six children. I was lucky because we always had the opportunity to take fun vacations, especially to Yellowstone National Park. We had a small piece of ground and always had horses around, usually a few Shetland ponies and always registered Morgan horses. I learned to love horses, to laugh and play cowboys and Indians, racing around our pasture, making huts in the trees and just having a great time with my brothers and sister.
Today I live in a small Utah community with my husband who is my best friend. We have alot of fun riding our ATVs, camping and fishing.
I helped raise three great step-children who have given me five beautiful grandchildren.
I’ve had the opportunity to do some traveling, spent most of a year living and working in Washington, D.C, and have met many new friends along the way. This has provided me with wonderful background for my stories. But what I enjoy most now that I’m getting older (did I really say that?) is spending time at our cabin in the Utah mountains enjoying the wildlife and feeding the hummingbirds.
Here's a picture of some hummingbirds flitting around the bird feeder at our cabin. Sometimes we have as many as 12 at a time fighting for a place at the feeder.
I love to read, and I especially enjoy a murder mystery or a good western historical. But I have to admit that there really isn’t a book that I don’t enjoy. I wrote the beginnings of my first novel 25 years ago, but life got in the way of finishing it as I married and raised a family. After 28 years working as a civilian for the Air Force, I retired to the career I really love – writing.
I believe life is full of romance, and I love writing about it.
