"What I love about writing in the past is that there's always something new to discover. History has a way of surprising you in ways you could never expect!"

A native of Virginia, she now lives in a Pennsylvania pre-civil war Farm House with her husband, three dogs and about a dozen barn cats that are too lazy to hunt. She has three beautiful grown daughters who are the inspiration for many of the stories she writes.

“One can never be lonely when they open the pages of a good book.”
