I’m a forty something, recently self-published author of romantic fiction. Married to the most thoughtful man in the world. I have one grown step-son and two four-legged children – a Bernese Mountain Dog named Ben and an American Bobtailed cat named Spike. I am a huge music fan and, much like my varied tastes in music, I am a lover of books of all types, although romance tops my list. But I also love a good mystery and a nail-biting thriller. I adore cookbooks, even though I hardly ever cook these days! I’m trying to enjoy the whole exciting publishing process but, honestly I’ve never been this scared before in my life. I feel like I’m opening up my heart and offering it up to the world. But I guess that’s what writers do, isn’t it? Scary stuff.
