After graduating from law school, where I met my husband – a classmate – I practiced civil litigation for over six years, specializing in family law.
I “retired” several years ago following the birth of my second child. Now I wrangle kids, write full time, do a poor job of keeping in touch with my wonderful sorors of Delta Sigma Theta sorority, and read whatever I can get my hands on.
After Stephen King’s terrific book, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, gave me the courage to put fingers to keyboard, I wrote my first manuscript. A Delicate Situation is, sadly, unfit for public consumption. Fortunately, I’ve learned a little since then, and published my second completed novel, Trouble, in 2006.
I live in Ohio with my husband, kids, rescue cats, Sadie and Savannah, who graciously tolerate our presence as long as we feed them on time, and rescue hound, Sheldon, who keeps the yard free of squirrels and other vermin.
