Here's my story:
My creative writing career started in the fourth grade when I published my first book. It was a bestseller–mainly because my dad bought all ten copies I’d made on the school’s prehistoric Xerox machine. From there, I moved to newspaper reporting with a monthly column in a local newspaper. A bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Tennessee landed me in Washington, DC, where I wrote reports for Congress while pursuing a Master’s degree in Legislative Affairs from The George Washington University.
Aside from a brief stint in television production for NBC Sports at the Seoul Olympics, most of my early writing consisted of crafting lengthy government reports. Not exactly the most scintillating backlist, I know! My creative writing projects had to wait until I could squeeze them in between my paying gig and my family’s busy schedule. I finally realized the dream of becoming a published author in May 2013 with the release of my debut novel, GAME ON. Many books later, I'm still doing what I love.
Currently, I live in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, with my husband, and a wild Labrador Retriever named Harper. I'm always happiest when my two young adult kids are here for a visit. When I’m not writing, I enjoy working out but only so I can indulge in my most favorite hobby, baking. When I'm not doing either of those, my nose can be found buried deep in a book.

I look forward to hearing from you and thanks for stopping by.
