There may be a rule about using a formal bio here, but I think something more relaxed is in order for a breath of fresh air. Honestly, I’m not sure about you but when I find authors I like, I enjoy hearing them share more personal snippets about their lives and less about accolades and awards.
Here are some random facts about me to get the basics out of the way first. I’m a native Floridian, born and raised in south Florida into a boating family. I love the ocean and everything to do with it, but after being swept off my feet and getting married, I moved to Denver and lived there for a decade. Loved the mountains, the dry climate and city life. The snow? Well, it had its good points…just not during morning rush hour commutes!
The pull of family and water brought me back to Florida where I had two children and decided that motherhood was the most fabulous thing in the world. Except for those few moments when it’s not! But life changed yet again and I took a huge risk and plotted my life in a whole new direction. The stories and characters that had been filling my head for so many years demanded their fair share of attention and I began to write full-time.
Since writing occupies virtually all of my waking thoughts, I no longer cook like I used to. In fact, I’m still holding out hope that the food pyramid has been wrong all these years and carbohydrates are at the top and nachos and pizza are healthier than chicken and broccoli.
I love hearing from people so please feel free to join me on Facebook or my (incredibly infrequent) newsletter. Pop in and say hello anytime!
