I was born and raised in Iowa. Graduated from Iowa State University. Lived in Maryland, and now reside in Pennsylvania with my family.

Someone asked me once why I wanted to write.

          “Really what it comes down to is that I love to read. I love picking a book, looking at the cover, reading the back. Opening it and diving right in. Getting lost in the pages, the characters, and the story line. I love it when a plot sucks me right in, keeping me guessing or wanting to know what's going to happen next. Laughing and crying while reading, and yes I have done both. Stayed up way too late to finish it and been terrified to be alone while reading because the story draws me in so much. I wanted to do that. I wanted to create that. I wanted to give someone else that experience with my stories.”
