About this author

My life has always been papered with novels. From traditional Harlequin romances to epic books like Lonesome Dove, my reading interests are vast. I can't imagine a life without coffee, hot tamale candy and a book in hand. I write romance, but I read every genre...except sci-fi. But I can be persuaded.

Don't give into the idea all writing is inspired. It's work. You have a job, you must do that job. Skip to a new scene and move forward. You can always go back and write the one giving you fits later.(less)
