Books were my first love. When I was 8 years old, we lived across the street from the city library. That summer I burned through Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, the Narnia series and A Wrinkle in Time, to name a few. So began a 40 year love affair that continues to this day.
By trade, I’m an attorney. I’ve dedicated my career to advocating for abused and neglected women and children. I’ve worked as a prosecutor, a public defender, and at a non-profit that recruits, trains, and supervises volunteer advocates for children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect.
Regardless of my position, I’ve always sought out opportunities to write and teach. I wrote my first novel, Truth Kills, because the characters came alive for me, and I had to see what happened to them. Basically, I wrote it because I wanted to read it. After 25 years in Dallas, TX, I recently relocated to Centennial, CO, with my husband, Mike, and our adopted Cowboy Corgi, Hershey.
