More About the Author

I have always been a story-teller. As a child, I got into a lot of trouble for "making things up." Now, I get rewarded for making things up. I love being able create heroes and heroines that people can relate to--even crazy cat ladies, as I did with CATASTROPHE, my first publication with The Wild Rose Press (WRP). I've been writing fiction since I was in middle school and have the rejection slips to prove it. In high school, I even submitted a script to "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." on yellow-lined paper in pencil. Not surprisingly, that was rejected, too.

After I graduated with a BA in Psychology and no job, I realized my dreams of working in the attic writing great prose would have to take a back seat to the simple pleasures of eating, drinking, and having a roof over my head. Fast forward a few decades, and I had a career path that would make all but the kindest say, "What were you thinking?" After working in health care delivery for years, I became a researcher, then an academic. I had it all-- a terrific, supportive husband, an amazing son, and a wonderful job. But that itch to write (some call it obsession), kept beckoning me to "come on back" to writing fiction. In the summer of 2004, I spent one whole month away from Baltimore in Florida doing nothing but writing fiction. The resulting effort was the first of many drafts of my first novel, which is now the award winning SOME OTHER CHILD.

As an academic, I published numerous non-fiction articles and two textbooks, INTRODUCTION TO HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT and CAREER OPPORTUNITIES in HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT: PERSPECTIVES FROM THE FIELD. However, I found the road to publication in fiction to be much harder. After I published some short stories in horror and mystery, my friend, Rosemary Ellen Guiley recommended I join the Maryland Romance Writers (MRW). I joined in 2005 and found friendship, support and the opportunity to develop as an author with MRW and the Romance Writers of America (RWA). Since romance has over a dozen sub-genres, I was able to turn my fascination with horror and mystery into paranormal romance and romantic suspense. I was home.

The themes of most of my fictional works revolve around journeys of discovery of one's true self and how family and love fits into one's identity. DESIRE AND DECEPTION poses the question, "Can a girl from a criminal home ever escape her background? Can a goody-two-shoes ever see shades of gray?" Join Isabel and Sarah in their journeys of self-discovery to find out.

I hope I keep my promise to you as an author of both nonfiction and fiction and that my fictional works entertain you, move you to laughter, anxiety, suspense, tears and the sigh of a satisfying ending. Thank you for reading my work.

Happy Reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars student review October 19, 2011
Purchased this book for class. This book is the first edition from 2007. Current edition out is 2011. Was able to use the book for most class assignments. Subject matter was pretty good. Would have preferred the most recent edition but the price was just right at over 60% cheaper.
