Live, love, laugh...such simple words, but words I take to heart. There are never enough hours in my day to do even half of the things I would like to do. Maybe I try to bite off too big of chunks of what I want to do, what I need to do, and of what others expect me to do. But no matter how crazy my life gets, I try to incorporate my words to live by (live, love, laugh) into each day.
Beyond my family, I enjoy traveling anywhere, at anytime. I've been fortunate enough to see so many interesting places over my life, places I've read about or heard about. I've been in the jungle of Mexico and looked up at a Mayan pyramid. I've walked inside the partial ruins of ancient castles in England, Scotland, and Ireland. I've stood at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower and looked up. I've ridden on ferry taxis on the Grand Canal in Venice. I've walked along the beach edges in California, Texas, Florida, and France. I've been to New York City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., the Grand Canyon, and so many more places. But I will never see enough. I will always hunger for one more trip.
All of my many adventures and observations of people and places help my writer's imagination. I'm filled with 'what ifs' and ideas for yet more characters. My writing, too, leads me on many adventures. I dabble with romances of many sub-genres: contemporary, historical Western, medieval, sci-fi, paranormal, and Regency. As with never having enough of traveling, I will never have enough of writing.
As a published author in e-books and Print-On-Demand books, I have published 20 novels, 22 novellas, 6 short stories, and 6 anthologies with various publishers.
