I'm a hopeless romantic and believer in fairy tales. Even as a little girl, my fondest dream was to find a Prince Charming who would sweep me off my feet. I'm happy to report I've been married to him for twenty-five years. Although I've been an avid reader since I was two years old, I never envisioned myself as a writer until 2009. Now I feel like I've finally found my life's passion. The muses keep the ideas flowing faster than I can put them on the page. I hope that my readers will love my characters and stories every bit as much as I've loved creating them.

I currently live in hot, sunny Phoenix, Arizona with my husband and three mischievous cats. In addition to writing, I enjoy reading, hanging out on GoodReads, surfing the web, watching

Yes, we did. We've actually had her since the summer, and I finally got around to downloading the pics into my computer. She a little bigger than my new profile pic now, but still pretty cute. I'm using her as my wallpaper at the moment too. Now I just need to post some pictures of my other cat and my dog.:-)

Mahlet Hey Julie!

I think I read somewhere that JR Ward is afraid to fly, so she tends to stick to this region (she came within 15 minutes of my home to sign Covet last year). I was out of town, so a girlfriend - who had never read a single PNR - went on my behalf. She reported back that Ward was quite a character. One of the readers said, "I've just discovered your books!"...and Ward responded, "Well, it's about f@#king time!" :)

There are several book signing Q&A sessions posted on YouTube from the Covet promotion where Ward gives out hints on where the series is going (who's pairing up next...will Blay&Quinn be together?..that kind of stuff). Also, I read somewhere that Ward does virtual book signings since she won't fly? I'm not sure what it entails, but you end of with a signed book :)
