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, through Berkley Publishing. 


I went on to release four books in the Out of Bounds series during my first year as an author.  In addition to the books about the fictitious Baltimore Blaze football team, I also write the Second Chances series for Berkley and digital novellas set in the small coastal town of Magnolia Bay, South Carolina, and Glacier Bay, Montana, for Tule Publishing.  And coming in 2018, a new romantic suspense series! Check out my books page for excerpts and buy links.


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 photography, cooking, and, what else, reading.  Be sure to friend me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter.  Or, leave me your email address to receive my newsletter. 


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