About this author

I'm the author of seventy-something novels, both women's fiction and mystery. I'm excited about my newest series, Goddesses Anonymous, which started with One Mountain Away and was followed last year by Somewhere Between Luck and Trust. The third book in the series, A River Too Wide, came out in July. The Color of Light debuts in August 2015.

Last year my husband and I moved from Arlington, Virginia, to Osprey, Florida, the state where both of us were raised, met, and married. In the summer we live in Chautauqua, New York. I'm a quilter and the mother of four children, whom I regard as my greatest creative endeavors. And I love my three grandchildren.

I wish I could have shown this video about famous failures to my kids when they were growing up, though it wouldn’t hurt to take a look at this whatever age you are and about once a month.


No matter how talented and smart and beautiful and charming you are, life has a way of putting in your path one obstacle after another, some small and easily managed and others that seem as big as a mountain.

“Worrying never heads off a crisis, and it doesn't prepare you for one.”
Emilie Richards, Sister's Choice
tags: life

“It's not who you come from, but who's standing right beside you, that counts most.”
Emilie Richards

“Prejudice in this country is like chapters in a book. Chapter One: Hating the Africans and Indians. Chapter Two: Don't forget the Irish. Chapter Three: Polish jokes."..... "Hispanics? Latinos? Whatever you call us? Maybe we're Chapter Fifteen or Sixteen on the East Coast, but we're the preface in the West.”
Emilie Richards, Endless Chain

I hope to. My publisher has the final say, but right now we have tentatively scheduled a novella in a Christmas anthology. We'll see.
