About The Author

I have lived in many different parts of the world, and grew up on military bases. My father was career military and CIA; his father worked with the Secret Service. I graduated high school in Germany and I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I received a degree in Computer Science with a minor in math. My specialty is social media and I love connecting with people.

I own the complete rights to my novels – copyright as well as all distribution rights. I published my novels under my own publishing company Silkhaven Publishing, LLC.

I live in Austin, Texas with my husband, two children, and two puppies. I enjoy meeting with my monthly critique writing groups and meeting other writers in the Austin area through the WLT and Austin RWA events.

Besides writing, I have past work experience as a software engineer (current job), public speaker, sales representative (#1 National Sales Rep for an online company years ago), and I am an amateur portrait and sports photographer.

My novel, “Reliant Service,” came in first place in the Houston Writers Guild’s Fall 2014 paranormal story contest. I am also an RWA Pro member and I judge many online writing contests.

The White House, the President, and Washington D.C. are merely backdrops to support my romance stories. They offer some suspense, but my books are romances and not political thrillers.
