A Little About Me
I’ve always loved a good story that leaves me feeling uplifted, and if it includes romance, even better.
That’s what led me on my journey to become a multi-published author of inspirational romance. I grew up in a small Oklahoma town where my family farmed and ranched. I went on to study Journalism / Professional Writing at the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!).
These days I live in a not-so-big city with my amazing husband and two young sons. Living in a house full of boys is a lot of fun, and they do a great job tolerating all my nerdy quirks. I’m a proud member of America Christian Fiction Writers, which is where I’ve met some truly wonderful people.
1. Growing up, I “helped” my dad with the farming. Actually, I would fall asleep in his truck until he finished all the work and woke me up to go fishing.
2. I’m afraid of hippos. I watched a show about how aggressive they are. I used to think they were cute – now I think they’re just mean.
3. Traveling is fun, but there is nowhere like home. I’ll always be a homebody at heart.
4. I love coffee ice cream and any kind of dark chocolate.
5. I met my husband when I was working in a cafeteria. I knew he really liked me if he could see past the apron and plastic gloves.
6. Every single day I’m in my office, I have my space heater blowing directly on my feet.
7. I love Christmas movies. We watch them constantly from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Elf, White Christmas, and Christmas Vacation are some of my favorites.
8. I’m not a great cook, but I love food and can’t get enough of Top Chef and other cooking shows.
9. I like anything sour. My favorite was cutting a lemon in half, pouring salt on it, sucking out the juice, and then, turning it inside out to eat the inside. I finally listened to my dentist and stopped.
10. One of my favorite chapters of the Bible is Psalm 84. It’s so beautiful! 1 How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! 2 My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. 3 Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young—a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
