Every year I experience a wave of sadness when I realize I am too old to attend summer camp. I used to be a CFO, but I can never escape accounting because someone always needs a number cruncher. I am a Texan happily living in California.

What I Love in a Romance

I love watching a relatinship evolve, witty banter, sexual tension and the assurance of a happy ending.

What I Hate About a Romance

I am not a fan of the graphic covers. They are fun to look at but I feel like they are more trouble than they are worth. I do not think they help the genre\'s reputation. 

I hate when a character\'s internal dialogue is stuck on repeat and the reader hears the same thought again and again and again...

A Bit More About Me

I am addcted to istockphoto.com and dabble in graphic design.

I coach people to cycle nowhere inside, which means I teach spinning at the gym. 

I love genealogy and am a card carrying member of the DAR.
