Hello! How nice it is to meet you!
Writing is not new to me, although being published is.
An assignment by my elegant and sweet fifth grade teacher was what started it all. The assignment? To write a short story and read it aloud to the class.
Enter a story about a group of fifth grade kids camping in the woods who were attacked by a Grizzly; add body parts everywhere and kids being mauled to death one by one, and pile on top one horrified teacher (Poor Mrs. J!). But, the kids thought it was cool, and I was hooked.
Writing continued throughout Junior and Senior High, in the form of space stories, then spy stories, which, by the time I reached graduation, had turned into romances! Every year when spring fever hit, I would take my notebook outside at lunchtime, and soak up the sun, and write. Then I would take it home and type it up on onionskin paper, on an old Underwood typewriter (Yes, I know I'm old!)
One day recently while cleaning, I came upon a tote containing a wad of onionskin paper, rolled up. I was delighted to find a story that I had written when I was about eighteen, and thought, "Hmm, I wonder what would happen if I sat down and re-wrote this?"
My favorite Heroine? One with intelligence, integrity, courage, and firm determination. And needless to say, my favorite hero is an "Alpha male" who loves his woman to distraction, but is stern, and willing to be as determined as necessary, to protect her from danger, even danger from herself.
I have always firmly believed there is nothing quite as sexy, as a man who is willing to take his woman in hand (or over his knee) in order to protect her!
A warm space,
a good book."
Other than writing for Blushing Books Publications, I have a few other hobbies that I adore; photography, (yes, the photos on this site were taken by me) woodcarving, stained glass , music, and sewing (which I 'm quite lousy at but love to do! Jewelry making is also one of my first loves!

So enjoy, my friends. Yes, there are heroines in these books who fail to make good choices, and are taken to task for it. So if the spanking of adult females is not your favorite dessert, please do not ask for a slice!
