I write contemporary romance novels infused with humor, adventure, and suspense. My first book, The Librarian and the Spy, features, unsurprisingly, a librarian and a spy. Write what you know, they say. So I did. The librarian part, not the spy part.

My writing career didn’t begin until I was in my late 40s. Now I’m honored to be one of those odd people who will have their first book published after 50. Seriously, you just never know where life will take you.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in History from UCLA (Go Bruins) and a Master’s degree in Library Science from San Jose State University (Go Spartans). I live in Superior, Colorado (where 100 years ago the coal was deemed to be of “superior” quality), with my husband, Ken, our daughter, Sarah (when she’s not away at college), and Lucy the Golden Retriever.

When I’m not writing, I read, eat, and watch more sports than is probably healthy. I’ve been known to do all three at the same time.
