About the author (1985)

I don't know exactly when I started telling myself stories, but I suspect I always have. A story I remember from beginning to end was one I told myself in high school. As you might suspect, the hero and the heroine were high school students and the story was most definitely a romance. I even sketched out the clothes my heroine wore in certain scenes. Of course, I didn't call them scenes, and I didn't call the young man and woman the hero and heroine. They were just people who played out their lives in my mind at odd moments.
The practice of telling myself stories continued through college and into my adult life. I know I'm not alone when I say housework has always been tremendously boring to me. I've never been able to see any creativity in it as some women do. (These women have my total admiration.) And so as a young mother and housewife, I told myself stories while I vacuumed or washed dishes or cooked dinner.
Today, many published stories later, I consider myself the most fortunate of people. First and foremost I am blessed with two truly wonderful sons, Greg and Jeff. I am their biggest fan, and my life is immeasurably enhanced because I am their mother.
Next is my writing. I've discovered that it's a lot more fun to write a story and have it published than to keep it in my head. To that end, I'm extraordinarily lucky to have a longtime working relationship with the terrific people at Bantam.
I've saved you, my romance readers, for last. Your loyalty and support have come to mean a great deal to me. Thank you. You are the nicest people in the world. Yes, you!
