I'm a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend, a volunteer,
a teacher, a Girl Scout leader, a writer.
I'm just like you! So how did I end up being an author?
Once upon a time, I wrote a story. That story won an award, and I was hooked. I'm not sure whether the magic to my motivation was the pack of markers I won, or the amazing rush I got from looking at a set of pictures and conjuring an entire world. I'm betting on that last thing.
Many years (I'm talking many) have passed since that day. There have been numerous starts and stops, and it took the loss of our first daughter before I took my writing seriously. Yet, here I am.
With fifteen novels and over one million copies sold, I'm proud to say I am a USA TODAY and WALL STREET JOURNAL bestselling author. I've been nominated for a RITA and am a RIO Award and two-time Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence winner. My additional honors include National Readers Choice, Holt Medallion, NJRW Golden Leaf, Booksellers Best, and Bookbuyers Best award nominations.
If you've read all that, thanks! More than anything, thanks for reading my books, dropping me notes, and allowing me to do the things I love most. Wonder. Imagine. Write.
