If there's a better career out there than writing, she doesn't want to know about it, as she's quite happy putting pen to paper in the backyard of her Texas home. That's where she lives with her petroleum geologist husband, three rescue dogs, and a colony of not-quite-feral cats, battling the heat each year to raise a bumper crop of tomatoes and jalapeno peppers.
