Family Status: Married nineteen years, two beautiful bear cubs (stage names Yogi and Boo Boo.) One dog, one parakeet, one geriatric box turtle.
What Is Your Favorite Beverage: Chocolate milk shakes. Too bad my favorite isn’t water or something good for me!
What Is Your Favorite Food: My hubby’s barbecue. He’s the ‘Cue Master!
What Is Your Favorite Thing to do During Free Time: Reading, of course, but currently I’m trying to learn to play the ukulele (with mixed results!)
Who Has Been the Most Influential Person in Your Life:My father. He’s just the most humble, loving, amazing person on the planet.
First Book You Fell in Love With: The whole Chronicles of Narnia series, but the funny thing is, I didn’t know they were Christian novels until I was a grownup! Isn’t that funny? I was also enamored of the Wizard of Oz books. Talking chickens? Houses made of glass? I ate that up.
A Book You Wish You’d Written: Mrs. Mike. Have you read it? I just hung on every word of that thing.
First Book Published: Trouble Up Finny’s Nose with Barbour’s Heartsong Mysteries. Then I started in with Harlequin and I’ve written for River North as well.
