Writer, editor and hopeless optimist. I've lived on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, ridden more than 1000 miles in trail competitions on horseback, and been owned by two Newfoundlands. I'm staff for a herd of cats and a herd of horses.
I don't write standard romance. I write emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What I seek is what lies beneath--a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable.
