Okay. About me. Born in New Jersey. Grew up in Baltimore. Moved to the midwest when the city I was living in started to get too scruffy. Always wanted to be a writer. (Never mind my pre-pubescent fantasies about being Batman's girlfriend. I didn't imagine I'd get paid for that.)
I wrote for a long time before I sold. Not too long, I guess, since I didn't give up, but long enough to appreciate how amazing it is that so many of my dreams are coming true. (Yes, you too can become a published author!)
My first sale was MENAGE to Black Lace. I wrote five erotic novels for them, a novella for Secrets, then sold my first historical romance to Berkley Jove. Until I worked on BEYOND INNOCENCE, I had no idea research could be enjoyable. I mean, why don't they give the fun history books with the pretty pictures to kids in high school? I could be so much less ignorant if I'd had them.
But no matter. Being ignorant is a good excuse to by more books. And learning is a pleasure, especially when you can turn it into a story someone will love.
