I have been married for twenty plus years to my Alpha hero. We have one son. I live in Texas with my family and one cat. I find that if I'm not writing, I'm going nuts.
I take writing seriously enough to accomplish a realistic feel. I write about things I know and love to include LOTS of detail for the readers to enjoy!
HORSES: love them. I have a friend who let's me ride when I'm in her town. Thanks Ashton.
Write as often as you can. Keep up that creative vibe.

Lear n to be paient. The first 3 to 5 years of writing is mostly building your fan base. But don't worry, it will pay off if you give it time to work.
