I grew up in Denver but later lived in Dallas, raising a family and working as a Developmental Psychologist. I conducted research in child and family development for social service agencies and was Adjunct Associate Professor at UT-Dallas. Rigorous research demanded strict protocols and adherence to facts, but I wanted to make up stories. So I set aside my research career and moved to NW Montana. I joined a most wonderful group of writers and learned to incorporate my professional curiosity about family relationships into novels of Domestic Suspense. We recently moved to Mid-Missouri where I look forward to learning from and sharing with an impressive group of writers.
