I grew up on a dairy farm in the Midwest as the youngest of eight children. Now I live in Kansas with my husband, two daughters, nine cuckoo clocks, and a cat named Holly. My life's been blessed with lots of people to learn from and love. Writing's always been a major part my world, and I'm so happy to finally share some of my stories with other romance lovers.
I'm a member of Romance Writers of America, and I've been through a writing correspondence class in children's literature from The Institute of Children's Literarture, and then I continued my writing lessons by majoring in English with an emphasis in creative fiction writing from Pittsburg State University.

I can’t even narrow that down to one favorite author! Favorite types of books: Romance, of course!
I started out loving authors like Sandra Brown (she popped my romance book cherry!), Linda Howard, Nora Roberts, Julie Garwood, Judith McNaught, LaVyrle Spencer.
After that, I went through a romantic suspense phase and fell for Suzanne Brockmann, Cherry Adair, Karen Robards, Roxanne St. Claire, Tara Janzen, Cindy Gerard, and Gennita Low.
Then, along came my passion for historical romance, and hello Julia Quinn, Lisa Kleypas, Elizabeth Hoyt, and Sabrina Jeffries.
My paranormal loves include Gena Showalter, J. R. Ward, Lara Adrian, and Eve Langlais!
Young adult romance snagged me with authors like Simone Elkeles, Katie McGarry, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Chelsea Fine, and Jay McLean.
Tammara Webber, Colleen Hoover, Kristen Callihan, and Elle Kennedy got me hooked on new adult romance!
And, of course, anything by Ada Frost.
I also like the books: Harry Potter series, To Kill a Mockingbird, His Kiss by Melanie Marks, Losing It by Cora Carmack, Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, Bully, Tangled, Real, One-Week Girlfriend, Archer’s Voice, Ten Tiny Breaths, The Sweet Gum Tree, On Dublin Street, #Nerd, and The Hooker and the Hermit.
My three closest – Kurt, Lydia, and Sadie. Then my mom, the Martinies, and my online ladies I need to meet someday in person: Lauren, Lindsay, and Ada!
