People often perceive me as being a bit on the serious side when they first meet me. Then they discover I have a silly side. Now that I've had a couple romance novels published people seem to think my husband and I chase each other around the bedroom every night.


Background Information

I was born in Waukegan, IL and moved to San Francisco, CA with my parents and 3 brothers when I was 5 years old.  We moved to Guam shortly before my 15th birthday.  We lived there for 1 year in a Quonset hut in the middle of a jungle.  I met my husband on Guam, where he was stationed with the Navy.  I moved with my family to Oroville, CA in 1955 and still reside there today.  My husband and I were married in 1957 and we had 4 daughters.  Our second daughter died of Leukemia in 1966, a month before her 6th birthday.  It was she that I wrote about in AN ANGEL AMONG US. 

I took my first college course 12 years after I graduated from high school and continued going part-time while raising my children.  I earned my BA degree and teaching credential at CSUC.  I taught elementary school for 19 years, primarily in the third grade.  Although, I began  writing short stories when I was 12-years-old for my own amusement, I didn't start writing novels until after I retired.  Words have always fascinated me; their rhyme, their rhythm, the endless combinations "dance" inside my head.  I plan to continue writing romantic suspense because I enjoy the dynamics of love stories with intense passion and surprising twists.

Additional Information

My current novel is a supernatural romantic suspense entitled, ROSE COTTAGE. I have had several book signings, feature articles in local newspapers, radio interviews and guest speaker engagements.

Interior designer Kemble Morgan has an unusual talent for discovering hidden secrets in houses and people. But no one will accept her intuition, including ruggedly handsome millionaire Archer Griffith when unknown assailants pursue them. Headed deeper and deeper into danger where friends and enemies are difficult to distinguish, Kemble senses her only help may come from a crystal angel figurine.

ROSE COTTAGE
Summer Gabriel dreams of marrying Marcus Brennan and living at her favorite childhood place, Rose Cottage. All she has to do is convince him to help her reunite the spirit of the former owner, Rose with her beloved late husband. Summer's efforts are hindered by the ghost of Rose's vindictive twin sister, Rena. But Marcus scoffs at the idea of the cottage being haunted until someone... or something tries to drown him.
