Failure: Is it a limitation? Bad timing? It's a lot of things. It's something you can't be afraid of, because you'll stop growing. The next step beyond failure could be your biggest success in life."

Debbie Allen, quoted from the book Walking on Alligators

Background Information

As the daughter of a writer and rancher in central New Mexico, my love for the West and its stories came naturally. My favorite memories from childhood include listening to my fatherís bedtime tales about wild horses in the Manzano Mountains, running barefoot in the foothills, hunting for arrowheads, and exploring ancient Pueblo ruins.

It's this fascination with the past and the magic of the ancient cultural beliefs that has also inspired my desire to write historical fantasy. One of my favorite books of all time is Marion Zimmer Bradley's Mists of Avalon.

Birth Place
Mountainair, NM USA

Before I was published, I placed or won several writing contests for romance fiction. I haven't had a chance to win any awards for published writers, but here's hoping!

First Place in the Silken Sands Contest, sponsored by Gulf Coast Romance Writers, with DESTINY'S SERENADE.

Third Place Southwest Writers Workshop contest with THE AWAKENING FIRE

Third Place Southwest Writers Workshop contest with AMETHYST WISH

Third Place in the Maggie, sponsored by Georgia Romance Writers, with DESTINY'S SERENADE

MICA award from Northwest Houston Chapter of Romance Writers of America for CARI'S GAMBLE, a short contemporary romance.

Additional Information

I have revised THE AWAKENING FIRE and it will be reissued by Five Star in May 2004! I'm excited that this book, so close to my heart, will be available again.

I've also signed with an agent, who is representing me on my current work in progress, a historical fantasy titled DAUGHTERS OF THE SACRED FLAME. With the exception of the paranormal elements in my novella, "The Mystic's Promise," this book is a definite departure for me, but I'm having a great time writing it.
