 I write a lot of fictionalized true stories, stuff that really happened but is changed enough to protect the innocent, or guilty, as the case may be.  My novel, The Valentine Symphony, was inspired by an experience a few years ago at the Dallas Symphony.

I live near Dallas, Texas with my family and three cats.

My philosophy and favorite quote about writing:              


“Actually, you can be bad at something, Lily, but if you love doing it, that will be enough.”                                       -Sue Monk Kidd from her book The Secret Life of Bees
