I was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, grew up in New Jersey, moved to New York where I met my husband and moved back to New Jersey where I raised my children and currently reside. I love writing, reading, cooking, eating, bridge, golf, baseball and a really nice glass of wine. I don't like ideologues, bigots, bad hair days, bad food at high prices, bad attitudes about anything. My first book CIRCLES was published in l984 as a paperback original, hit the NYTIMES BESTSELLER LIST, stayed there for three months and sold over a million copies. Since then, I've published FIRST BORN. RIGHTFULLY MINE, THE WILD ROSE, TRUE COLORS, THE LUCKY ONES, OUT OF NOWHERE, BEFORE AND AGAIN, SHADES OF RED. My latest endeavor, in addition to releasing all nine of those novels on Amazon as ebooks, is a series of e-mysteries, COUNTRY CLUB CRIMES. The first in the series, THE NEST will be available soon.
