Let’s start with a bit of history and how I managed to make my dream come true. Passion and determination drive me, which explains why I climbed the corporate ladder while still in college and ventured into the world of endurance races. Those qualities also pushed me to walk away from a twenty-plus year career to follow my dream of becoming a published author. It was a long road, but like the miles in an Ironman race, I tackled the submissions and rejections one step at a time.
I signed with my agent in December of 2010 and she sold my first manuscript within six months. I feel Blessed, not only am I working my dream job, I’m married to my best friend, training partner, soul mate. We raised a handsome, successful son, gained a beautiful daughter-in-law, and welcomed our gorgeous granddaughter into this world. Family and friends continue to be my biggest supporters, they are the reason I write with emotion and enthusiasm.
I write stories about “heart” and hope they inspire readers to step out of their comfort zones and strive to reach their own goals.
