I write books.  I’ve always had a huge imagination, and so writing books just seemed like the logical job for me.  I love LOVE, so Romance is the perfect genre for me.  I love  Happily Ever Afters in my books, but I also love a good rocky journey to get there.  A difficult journey makes the destination worth it.  🙂

Random fun facts about me:

  1. I collect dashboard hula-girls.
  2. I like to have my car stereo volume set at an even number.
  3. I can barely remember my natural hair color (You can see from the pictures below how often I change it!)
  4. I am terrified of buoys and birds.
  5. I love cemetery angels. Is that weird?
  6. My patronus is Jensen Ackles.


I grew up in rural Kansas, so yes, I am a corn-fed Kansas girl.  My husband calls me his “Sunflower” because that sounds so much better.   I live in Florida now, with my real-life circus, where I write beneath palm trees and go to DisneyWorld all the time because I’m an overgrown child who loves the idea of magic and happily-ever-afters.

I have my own Prince Charming, two sons, one daughter, two cats, Nyx and Ninja,  our old grandpa dog, Milo, and our puppy Grendel.

Me and Fisher Amelie in February 2012 (when my hair was still long!) after an 18-hour long day. We were practically zombies, but we were still happy. That’s the beauty of my sweet Fisher— she is always joyful.
