Most people think of retirement as a time to relax. For me, retiring at 36 from my job as a Navy Chief Meteorologist/Oceanographer allowed me to pursue my passion – writing romance novels. With 29 moves behind me and having traveled through many more countries, I was anxious to create characters who reflected the amazing cultures and people I’ve met over the years.
I’ve written ten novels to date. Three were viking novels set in 796, and six were about knights set in Scotland during the Bruce/Wallace era. I’ve also created a fictional precinct in Virginia Beach and have written the rough draft of my first romantic suspense. In the future, I intend to write fantasy novels - on which I’ve already begun research work on.
I have many passions in life, but one that resonates in my life is that of giving. I firmly believe that each of us can make a positive difference in another person’s life. There are so many charities that I believe in. With each book I sell, I will tithe ten percent of my royalites to a charity of my choice. The first charity I've chosen is The National Trust for Scotland, which acts as guardian of Scotland’s magnificent heritage of architectural, scenic and historic treasures. Without The Trust for Scotland, many of Scotland’s historical wonders would be lost.
I have an amazing family and am proud of my husband, who drag races semi-pro, and my three children who are very active within the community. The future holds many changes, including a much anticipated move to Texas where we’ll dig deep roots.
