Describe yourself in three words:
Tenacious mind
Tell us a little about your latest release:
Under Texas Blue Skies is set for release on July 29th.  It is a contemporary western romance set in the Texas Hill Country. I grew up in this area and have many great memories of listening to singers like George Strait when he was just getting started in the country music dance halls in our area.  I drew upon these small towns and those memories to create the world of my characters...J.D. Sterling and Amanda Lawson.
J.D. Sterling, country music’s sexy superstar, has come home again.  He has achieved his wildest dreams and did what he set out to do when he shook the dirt of the small Texas town from his boot heels a dozen years before. Now, he’s returned for the final piece of the puzzle to completing his life….the girl who holds his heart.  Mandy.
Amanda Lawson has grown up.  From sheer heartbreak to struggling to survive to becoming a shrewd businesswoman, she has taught herself to never look back.  She survived once before the wild, green-eyed cowboy with only a guitar to his name and a pocketful of dreams.  He took her heart and so much more when he left her behind with his hollow vows.
Mandy was his muse…J.D. was her dream.  Despite tragedy, can they find their way home to each other again? 
What is your earliest memory?
Riding a horse when just a toddler....that's when the wide open spaces got into my blood.
What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?
The births of my two children.
What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?
Raising two children into grown up adults
What have you learned in life so far?
Trust my instincts first and foremost
Don't sweat the small stuff...let it go
There is always someone else with a tougher load to carry than my own.

Billy Graham
Margaret Mitchell
John F. Kennedy
John Wayne
