I graduated from Eldorado High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a scary place to go to school. My best friend and I survived it by watching classic black-and-white movies every weekend. I always picked a Cary Grant, and she always picked a Clark Gable. My favorite was That Touch of Mink. I graduated with high honors from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in English and a minor in music.
I met my husband at BYU and we have four lovely children. After having children I discovered a deep well of creativity within myself that needed an outlet. I tried crafty things and decorating things and cooking things, but nothing satisfied or fulfilled me until I started writing my own stories. Once I started writing my first novel, Edenbrooke, I knew I had found a great love. I feel so fortunate and blessed to be able to do something I love for a living.
Besides writing, I enjoy music, traveling, being in the mountains, going to movies, and spending time with my family.
