I'm the author of seventy-something novels, including romance, women's fiction and mystery. When We Were Sisters debuted in June 2016, a stand alone novel about two foster sisters traveling back into their past together. I loved writing it and love the cover my publisher chose.

I'm also excited about my recent series, Goddesses Anonymous, which started with One Mountain Away and was followed by Somewhere Between Luck and Trust. The third book in the series, A River Too Wide, came out in July 2014. The Color of Light debuted in August 2015. Will there be more? We'll see.

I'm an adoptive parent and got interested in adoption first, then child welfare in general. I was on the board of our county child welfare program and got a real taste for the good/bad and in between of the way children are cared for and about. I also worked for Head Start coordinating parent involvement and social services. It's always been an interest but I haven't tackled it in fiction until now.(less)

I’m writing this before I discover what Hurricane Irma has in store for Florida, which is clearly going to be life-changing for many people in my home state–and possibly Proman and me. In the meantime we’re taking a long-planned hiking trip to the Utah parks to celebrate Proman’s recent birthday, and I’m practicing what I preached last week by doing something new and different.

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.
