About the Author
After my children were grown, I found myself restless, searching for ways to busy my idle hands and mind. I discovered my love of writing, and I was drawn to the mystique of Indian lore. What I learned about the Native American people inspired me to bring their stories to life through the wonderful genre of historical romance.
Having lived in St. Louis for thirty years, my husband and I returned to Mattoon, Illinois, when he retired from teaching. My dream house is peaceful and quiet, where an occasional curious red fox ventures onto my sundeck and peeks into my office, and where I can watch swallows building their nest and raising their babies right outside my kitchen window. It is the perfect place to create my novels.
I feel blessed to have found a “second life,” the first having been spent raising two happy and healthy sons. Writing my Indian romances is my small tribute to those beautiful first people of our land who have suffered so much injustice. And I have just begun. My upcoming books will continue with more passion and adventure and rich historical settings. Enjoy!
