The inspirations for my books and short stories are fairy tales, the supernatural, and classic romantic comedies. I’m a long time fan of Anne Rice, I have a writer-crush on F. Scott Fitzgerald, and my all time favorite book is The Picture of Dorian Gray. I’m a bit of a foodie and adore stories that have tie-ins to food (Books: Like Water for Chocolate & Garden Spells – Movies: Julie and Julia & Chocolat my favorites.)
I’m a Texan. I’ve been married since I was 16 and my husband, Don, was 18. We have been together for almost 30 years. We have 3 kiddos who we are very proud of: a teacher, a graduate student, and a 5th grader. And our first grand-baby was born this year (2014)!
In no particular order, I like movies, summer, non-fiction, TX hold’em, strong coffee, restaurants, family time, cooking, giraffes, Birchbox, reality TV competitions, shopping, festivals, the beach, trying new beers, shoes, Mexican food, earrings, and chocolate cupcakes. Oh, and I love to write.
