but Louisiana reared, I was once asked in an interview by a fellow
romance writer if I’ve had adventures in my life. I had to
admit being married many years to the guy I met on a blind date,
and having two sons and twin daughters has certainly been an
adventure. Plus having a mate who likes to cook, entertain and
travel provides endless backgrounds for my stories.
I am a
long-time resident of Baton Rouge, and until writing became my
passion, tennis, golf and rearing four active children filled my
days. Now, grandchildren, good friends and the computer occupy my
time. My encouraging husband couldn't be happier—writing keeps me
from the shopping malls.
I am often
distracted by my critique group’s stories, my husband’s dinner
parties, golf trips, travels, and anything and everything else
that pops up to drag me from the computer. But my
imagination never stops—plots, characters, and happy endings are
always on my mind.
