I'm the author of romantic comedies and cozy humorous mysteries. I love to laugh at life and I think romance should always be fun. 

I live in the boonies of the Midwest USA surrounded by cornfields, cattle and chickens.We have a small farm I lovingly call, Dust Bunny Farm. 

I met my husband under the hood of a car. I love cars and he was a mechanic, you might say we were a match made in RPM heaven. We've been married a really long time and have amazing kids that turned out well in spite of us and occasionally claim us a parents.

I have an office mascot named Diesel the Wonder Dog, who will “tinkle” at the slightest provocation, but he keeps my feet really warm and helps pick contest winners with encouragement from the snack bag.​

Now, for the REAL BIO. . . .

I am rarely seen in a dress, much preferring jeans and boots. When I'm not writing I can be found canning vegetables from my garden, making homemade bread (that sometimes turns out - sometimes it will require a trip to the grocery), or mowing, splitting firewood, and porch sittin'. I make amazing sweet tea thanks to my Southern mom, and really good margaritas thanks to my experimentation! 

My favorite place to be is in our small 5th wheel camper. I have been privileged to travel to 49 of our 50 fabulous United States. You can see pictures of our rig on the Dust Bunny Farm page.
