I remember as a young girl in school, I always enjoyed writing assignments. I never thought I would be a writer, but I did try to write two books at different times. I loved reading good stories, and so I wanted to write them.
But those two books never had readers. I didn’t tell people about them, so I received no encouragement to finish them.
And then the teenage years came, followed by early adulthood, marriage and children. Yet, through the years, I continued to love reading. I stockpiled books, so that as soon as I finished one, I began another.
That desire to write returned in the mid-1990s, when I dabbled in short romantic stories for magazines and also screenplays. Then I turned to novels. Though I read several different genres, my favorite is romantic suspense, so that’s what I write. But soon God planted a seed in my heart that developed into what I write today: issue -related romantic suspense.
When I see depravity and hopelessness all around us in these last days, I feel the need to wake people up to what’s going on and do something about it. Some of what I write about are subjects many people are not aware of. When I hear of or read news about something going on that’s unthinkable, my antenna goes up. I can’t help but begin to research it. Soon a story will develop in my mind, and you can guess where it leads.
