Bio: I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Reading was my first love. When I was thirteen, my older sister gave me a copy of Pride and Prejudice. Some years later she lent me her copy of Heyer's The Unknown Ajax, and I was hooked on Heyer. After college, my husband and I moved to rural Minnesota, south of the Twin Cities, where we bred registered Appaloosa horses for 25 years.
After I had read all of Austen and Heyer, I started collecting and reading books on the Regency, primary sources, whenever possible. I sold my first Regency to Fawcett in 1985.
In addition to the Regency novels I published with Fawcett, I have been involved in a broad range of writing and editing projects for educational media (ESL, EFL and TOEFL). I wrote video scripts for the Interchange series published by Cambridge University Press. I have also worked as a freelance editor. I spend much of my free time reading, and I am fascinated by all periods of English history.
My husband and I live in a 110-year-old Victorian farm house that we have completely renovated ourselves. We have two cats and a large garden. A few Appaloosas still keep the pasture trimmed. We have a lovely daughter, a splendid son-in-law, and two exceptional grandchildren.
