AFTER A RECENT MOVE to Charleston, SC I’m learning to love the beach as much as I love the North Carolina mountains where I grew up. It’s a little hotter here in the lowcountry, but I’m embracing the heat and all that comes with it. I love to spend time outdoors with my husband, Josh, our kids, and a growing assortment of pets. But also? I love hanging out at home with a great movie or a favorite book and eating delicious food that, when I’m lucky, I didn’t have to prepare myself. We currently have three kids in college, which is still crazy to me every time I think about it, and three kids left at home. Time FLIES when your kids turn into teenagers, friends. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Though I started my career traditionally published, publishing four novels with Covenant Communications, I’ve since shifted to indie publishing, which just means I handle all the ins and outs of getting my books published myself. It’s an adventure and a lot of work, but I’m loving the creative control it gives me! In the past, I’ve been a full-time editor with Midnight Owl Editors, but now my focus has shifted to writing romantic comedy full-time, and I’m having a fantastic time doing it! Love at First Note (Covenant 2016), my first romcom, was the 2016 Whitney Award Winner in the Contemporary Romance category.
