I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, your typical horse-crazy girl. Before I knew it, I discovered the joy of acting and met my high school sweetheart. We haunted the streets and theatres around Seattle before moving to Oregon and starting a family.

Eight kids later, John and I have discovered a new love: writing books together. I spend my days editing books for other authors, then I write at night.

I've reinvented myself several times, and I think I like writer/editor best. I hope you enjoy reading our books as much as we did writing them.
