I was born in Cornwall in southwestern England and return frequently. After school I joined the Royal Navy and at my last assignment in Denmark met my own tall, dark, handsome stranger - a US Naval Officer named Richard who became my husband. Our itinerant life took us to Sicily, California, Maryland, and finally London. Along the way we had our three sons. On retirement from the Navy my husband took a job near Nashville, Tennessee and we're still here. I've always been a voracious reader and in 2001 took a creative writing class which has sparked my new career. I've had short stories published in women's magazines in the UK, US, and Australia. My first novel 'Truth and Consequence' was published in 2006. I belong to the Red Bandanas Writing Group, Jubilee Readers Book Club, the Music City Romance Writers, and the Romantic Novelists' Association. I also volunteer at my local library so you can see words are important to me. I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I enjoy writing it so sit back, make yourself a cup of tea and enjoy a break from everyday life.
