Describe yourself in three words:
Tell us a little about your latest release:
"Bruises of the Heart" released in August of 2013. It follows Tori as she hides an abusive relationship from those that love her and how she ultimately gets out.  The subject of relationship abuse among teens isn't talked about as much as it should be. Maybe my book will help someone.
What is your earliest memory?
I remember sitting on the couch with my mom. She read to us every night before bed and fostered a love for books in all four of us from a very early age.
What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?
The day I married my husband. We actually were married by our pastor in his office and then did a big wedding ceremony for everyone else. The thing is that only our parents and siblings knew we were already married, so it was a little funny for us.
What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?
Fostering children. We were told it was going to be very difficult to have children so we went into foster care hoping we might be able to adopt someday. We had our daughter for 3 years, 5 months, and 3 days before her adoption was final. Our son's took 2 years, 1 month, and 4 days. Both placements were roller coasters for different reasons, but so worth it in the end.
What have you learned in life so far?
To not take anything too seriously.
Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?
Mercedes Lackey, Hannah Howell, Sean Connery, Jon Bon Jovi(if he brings his guitar), and my husband.
