My lifelong dream has always been to be a writer of novels. I enjoy the research involved in putting a book together, and I enjoy the relationship I build with my characters who seem to come alive as I write. It's thrilling to see all four of my books in paperback and sitting alongside my favorite author's books on my bookshelf. I can't tell you how gratifying a feeling that gives me. Best of all is hearing from readers and knowing I've given them some enjoyment through what I've written. I hope I hear from you!
