From an early age, I was passionate about the written word. I LOVE to write. Romance, to be specific. I love the happily ever after that, I believe, everyone deserves. My stories aren't the 'stop and smell the roses' type romances. While I believe everyone deserves happiness and true love, I know that sometimes you have to walk a hard road to find it. Those are the types of stories I like to write. The happily ever after that wasn't found, but was earned. I work to earn mine on a daily basis and so do my characters.
I was born in Texas, but grew up in a small town in Central Illinois. I married my high school sweetheart and we're currently living out our own happily-ever-after. We have three beautiful children and live near the shadows of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
When I'm not writing, I play guitar, sing, read like I get paid for it, ride horses, hike, paint rocks (it's a thing here), and support a rather obsessive addiction to Pinterest.
I love to cook, which combined with my pinning addiction, leads to many experiments foisted on my unsuspecting husband and kids, with mostly good results. But sometimes, the dogs get what the family refuses, and they never complain.
