The Family

The woman who gave me my first Harlequin, and the woman who insisted I learn to type!

Look for The Wrong Bed: Naked Pursuit.  Now a movie on Lifetime!

I credit my interest in writing romance to my grandmother.  She gave me my first Harlequin to read during the hot summer days I spent on my grandparent’s acreage in rural Oklahoma.

Immediately I was hooked!!!

Over the years, I would pick up a pen and write down ideas.  The first two books will never, ever see the light of day.  (I should probably destroy these so no one accidentally reads them!)

On December 18, 2003, I received “The Call” from Harlequin.  Actually, my answering machine received the privilege.  Never Naughty Enough was published as a Harlequin Temptation Heat less than a year later.  

I make my home in Oklahoma (where many of my books are set) with my husband and two children.  My hobbies include reading, pinning things I never plan to make, composting (yeah, I know) and watching OU play ball.  I also had to learn all about NBA basketball when the Thunder moved to OKC!  The least domestic thing I like to do is cook, which is why I try to avoid it as much as possible.
