Do you snack or listen to music while writing?

I  rarely snack at all and even less when I'm writing. I do sometimes listen to music. I don't have anything particular. I just stick Itunes on shuffle. I also write in utter silence.

 What is your most memorable high school experience?

That's tough. I could say graduation, prom, homecoming, awards night, summer dates, but really when I think of my high school experience, I think of the 6 great girls I hung out with and made memories with. They were the best part of high school for me.

 Is there one book or author who changed your life/viewpoint/writing?

Well, I'm a big Jane Austen fan. I'm not exactly sure when that happened. Sometime after college. I love to read her books and watch the films, mostly because it's all about the people, their relationships and feelings. They are timeless and universal.

 Are you a night owl or early bird?

I'm more of a night owl. I don't like to be up before 7 am.

 What is your favorite meal?

Pasta, especially with alfredo sauce. I'm a huge mac and cheese fan. I think that's where the pasta obsession started.

 What do you never leave home without?

Chapstick, phone, wallet, keys, and a tissue. If I have that, I'm good.

Do you have pets?

My daughter currently has 2 fish, prior to that it was hermit crabs. I'd like to get the saltwater tank up and running again. My kids lobby for furry animals and birds. I'm not up for being the caregiver to the pets, although we all agree on a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel if we got a dog. I did have a cat growing up, Fifi, from age 8 to 22. I'd get a cat again, if the rest of the family would agree.

 What is one piece of advice you would give aspiring writers?

Do it. Write it for you and no one else. Get educated in your craft. Oops. Guess that was two.

 What are your goals for 2014?

Publish Ring on Her Finger in the fall. Attend LDStoymakers Midwest. Perform in another musical or play. Finish painting my house. Get the family photo albums up to date. Clean out my closet. Play with my kids. Plan 15th anniversary trip. Go to the beach.

Fallen Angel
Antonio does not believe in love at first sight until he sees her fall into a street in Milan and get hit by a motorcycle. Compelled to know if she can return his affection, he becomes Renatta’s hospital volunteer only to learn that the accident erased her memory. Together they must discover her past, present and future. In the way of happily ever after stand her opera career, tyrannical mother, and fiancĂ©.  Antonio must win Renatta’s heart before she bends to the will of her mother and marries Marcello.  Failure means a lifetime of loneliness, for love at first sight never happens twice.
