You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.

I write contemporary romance novels. While I’m not published yet, I’ll be posting some excerpts to my Writing page so you can get a taste of what I’ve written and what I’m working on.

I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and its Contemporary Romance Writers chapter. I’m also a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA). I have attended the Antioch Writers’ Workshop and the RWA national conference. I have a degree in English literature from Rice University.

During the day, I’m an Information Technology project manager. I’m originally from Dallas, Texas, and I’ve lived in Austin, Houston, and Boston. Now I live in Dayton, Ohio, with my husband, two children, and three (!) dogs. When I’m not managing projects or writing, I enjoy travel, hiking, reading, drinking bourbon, and spending time with my family and dogs.
