I grew up in a average-size city in upstate New York. All through school I enjoyed writing as long as I could choose the topic. I even tried to write a novel length story while in middle school. The plot centered around two friends, but since I was young, I didn't stick with it all that long.
I met my husband in the latter part of 12th grade and married him two years later. He had already enlisted in the Air Force and I enjoyed accompanying him on his twenty years of service. By marrying young and entering the work force full-time, the writing bug didn't bite again until the early 90's when I read Judith McNaught's contemporary romance, Double Standards. I was already hooked on the romance genre and the little critter of a muse dug his teeth in deep, having gained a wealth of inspiration from Ms. McNaught's heart-warming story.
