Several years ago, before I started writing, my husband and I were travelling across Montana. While he drove, I read. It was at that moment, under the big blue Montana sky, that I knew I wanted to write books with characters that the reader sympathized with and loved.
At the time I was teaching school. I enjoyed reading aloud and doing novel studies with my students. I asked them what they would like to read and they told me about a kid everyone called the Barbarian, so I wrote Greg and the Barbarian.
I’ve always loved reading romance stories where the heroine flees to an isolated location and she has to rely on herself to get out of danger—and help the handsome hero who is tortured by an ancient curse.
My Women’s Fiction trilogy, Bringing Jamie Home, started with one question—what if a woman, who didn’t like children, became the guardian of a mischievous ten-year-old boy?
I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
