ll my life I’ve been lost in a world of myth, magic and romance. Oh, I keep one brightly-polished toe planted firmly on the ground so I can find my way back to the mundane… when I absolutely must. But for the most part I fill my days spinning tales of contemporary characters caught up in the unusual, the magical, and the mystical as they embark on their Hero’s Journey and their quest for love.
I have an incurable case of wanderlust and so travel when I can. My family tells me I’m adventurous. Man, have I had adventures! But never…I mean never on purpose. I’m a big scardy cat. Yep, I admit it. I’m no Indiana Jane. I’m an “accidental adventurer.” I hear about a destination, and I think, “Oh, that looks pretty,” so I put on my Librarian hat and do research, planning out all the details of my safe little vacation. Then, when I get to that far-off place, that’s when both the “accidental” and “adventure” start happening. Enchanting, unexpected, and sometimes even dangerous, things, people and animals present themselves on my travels. When I’m not writing or travelling, I have the privilege of playing (play being the operative word) Granny Nanny to several of my grandkids. They keep my inner child alive and well. I have three wonderful adult children who are the real magic in my life.
