You can take a girl away from her home, but you can't erase the search for home from that girl's heart. Like all children of military families, I spent my childhood moving from one duty station to the next. Along the way, I became an ardent student of human nature, acquired a love of ancient history and myth, a fascination for the ridiculous and unusual, and have to admit to collecting way too much useless information. These days, I write whenever I can. Modern romance and dragons are my thing. When not writing, my favorite moments are spending time with family, reading, watching movies, gardening, taking pictures of nature and architectural marvels, traveling, and remodeling the house I finally call home.
