I'm an action, adventure, romantic suspense novelist who enjoys good wine, great art, Tuscany, and a touch of mayhem. (You never know what you might see when you wake up suddenly in the dark.) I’m the author of TEAM EDGE.
I currently live in Georgia with my family, one overweight German shepherd and three very spoiled cats. I have a varied background in the military, the airlines, antiques, and medicine. My favorite career is writing and sharing stories with readers and fellow writers.
PLEASE NOTE: In June of 2012 my husband was diagnosed with cancer and due to his illness my book releases have been pushed back just a bit. (But not by much!) Please know that I'm working to get everything done as soon as possible and if you have emailed me, I will email you back the first chance I get. Just a little overwhelmed right now, but pushing hard to get through this and get more books out to my readers and fans. Thank you all so much for your kindness and understanding!
Here are a few of my favorite adages:
We are all weird. And life is weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours we call it love.
The best sex involves love and an open mind.
It’s not so much what you say that counts, it’s how you make people feel.
The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you’re scared to make a mistake.
If you catch yourself working hard and loving every minute of it, don’t stop.
It’s not about getting a chance, it’s about taking a chance.
True friendship and true love do sustain the tests of distance and time.
Even when you feel like you have nothing, someone else likely has far less.
Spend as much time as possible with the people you love.
Over-deliver on all your promises.
Make time to be spontaneous.
Today, I was sitting on my front porch watching the neighbor’s kid have the time of his life with nothing more than a wooden stick and his imagination.
Hearing the right song at the right moment can throw you back in time or define the meaning of life.
A familiar smell can bring an ancient memory into clear focus.
Pink Floyd once said “the memories of a man in his old age are the deeds of a man in his prime”. There is no simple pleasure more satisfying than recounting the greatest moments of your life with your closest friends who lived these moments alongside you.
Life is extraordinary in the moments when you are laughing so hard you can barely breathe.
There are few people you allow to hold your hand, so when it happens you can be sure that the moment is special.
All of my pets are rescues. Harley is my German shepherd. Kahlua is the cross-eyed Siamese. Rascal is our Golden Retriever. Kudzu is the black and white tuxedo cat. And Bobcat is the orange tabby. We're blessed to have them in our lives.
RIP, Rascal. I miss you. Crossed over the Rainbow Bridge Oct. 2011
