INSIDE THE AUTHOR STUDIO
Growing up in small town Alabama, I relied on story-telling as a natural way for me to pass the time and keep my two younger sisters entertained.
I currently live in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with my husband and daughter, maintaining my alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while I continue to pursue writing on nights and weekends.
I am an active member of the Romance Writers of America (including the FF&P , Greater Seattle Chapter, ESPAN, Passionate Ink, and the Seattle Eastside Chapters), Absolute Write, and Romance Divas.
Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs I’ve had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant.
And I’m also a recovering LARPer. (I blame it on my crazy college days)
Describe yourself in one sentence?
A overworked, slightly snarky MD and mom who likes to retreat to a world of happy endings from time to time
What are the one record, book, and food, you'd take to a desert island?
The Little Women soundtrack (Winona Rider version), Pride and Prejudice, and dark chocolate peanut butter cups
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Which book do you wish you'd written?
Twilight – if only I’d known how popular disco-ball vampires would be…
What makes you happy?
Seeing my daughter laugh
What makes you angry?
Stupid people -- seriously
Name five people you'd like to invite to a dinner party?
Out of the living: Lady Gaga, Jimmy Carter, Johnny Depp, Tina Fey, and Bono.
What's the scariest thing you've ever done?
Hitchhiked through Scotland (although I didn’t think it was scary at the time)
What inspired you to start writing?
I needed some stress relief, and I had a bunch of stories in my head that were dying to get out.
Where would you most like to live?
Near where I am now (Seattle), but perhaps a little more into the Mountains
What is your favorite curse word?
Probably shite – it’s just fun to say
Who is your favorite man candy?
Right now, it’s Henry Cavill (my muse for the hero in my current WIP)
Sum up your latest release in no more than twelve words!
Two outcasts searching for a legendary treasure to save a dying race.
