I wrote my first short story when I was eleven and have never ceased writing since, although only recently have I been able to return to my first love, fiction. During the years when I was scrambling to make money, I supported myself by teaching in universities in the United States, Canada and Australia, and by writing professional books in my field. Fortunately for me, those books were highly successful.
My research took me to many interesting places. I lived in Europe, Australia, the United States and Canada. I spent considerable time in still other places, Iceland, the Caribbean Islands, the Far East, and the Torres Strait Islands off the coast of New Guinea. Now I travel for pleasure. Portugal, Greece and Italy are favorite haunts.
My books are set in places I know and love and are peopled with characters drawn from my experiences of those places. I hope you will enjoy reading these books as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
I am a member of the Romance Writers of America, Romance Writers of America (Greater Vancouver Chapter), the Romance Writers of America (Women's Fiction), and the International Thriller Writers.
