After winning a short story contest in the fifth grade, I was hooked on creating entertaining stories. I'm now a member of numerous writing groups, attend writing workshops/conferences, and help conduct a romance writers' workshop on AOL.
Membership in Romance Writers of America, the From the Heart Online Chapter of RWA, and the Desert Rogues Romance Writers Group has allowed me to mingle with other writers and make life-long friendships that have become as important as my writing.
My stories have won or placed in many contests (and each win has been as thrilling as the first!). I'm the editor of Desert Rogues Romance and the Whispers of Love newsletters. My articles and short stories have appeared online and in newsletters.
