A Virginia native, she and her husband have their own shipboard romance as they met on a cruise ship tender in Maui, and as her mom is fond of saying, "they haven't stopped talking since." When she's not busy playing with words, she loves spending time with her husband and family in Arizona where she now resides.</p><h3> Q + A</h3><h4> What inspired you to write this book?</h4><p>Serendipity. I'll explain.</p><p>I wrote the outline for this novel while on a Caribbean cruise some years ago. Upon returning home, I put it aside for a large work project. Then, on a cruise to Hawaii, I met my husband-to-be, Jason, on a tender going into Maui. This chance meeting was love at first sight.</p><p>I'd just finished writing a memoir for a client when the COVID pandemic hit. At the same time, my mom had just finished reading a book that she loved written by an author who was new to her. While reading more about her, my mom discovered that this author owned a publishing company—5 Prince Publishing. Further investigation revealed that they were looking for Christmas submissions.</p><p>Since we were in quarantine, my mom suggested that I use this time and complete one of my unfinished books that lived on my computer. Because those early days of COVID were difficult and sad for the entire world, she suggested I finish my Christmas book, which would help to cheer us up, and submit it to 5 Prince Publishing, which was seeking holiday novels.</p><p>So, with my new hubby as inspiration for my hero, I dove in, and as they say, the rest is history and serendipity all the way. Thank you, Princess Cruises, for playing host to Jason's and my grand romance; you truly are "The Love Boat".</p><p>Come, and sail along with Olivia and Jace on the Serendipity and celebrate their love story as it unfolds in <em>Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship</em>.</p><h4> What attracted you to this genre: romance, mystery, non-fiction, etc.?</h4><p>Not all of the novels I have written or have outlined on my computer are romantic comedies. <em>Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship</em> evolved from an inspiration I had on a Caribbean cruise, and then I literally married this to my other real-life experience of meeting my husband—love at first sight style—on a Hawaiian cruise. Setting the book during the holiday season was festive, fun, and reflective of my love of this time of the year.</p><h4> What book are you currently reading? </h4><p><em>What Happened to the Bennetts?</em> by Lisa Scottoline</p><h4>Are you writing anything now? If so, when will it come out?</h4><p>I'm working on the sequel to <em>Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship</em>, which is the second book in <em>The Perfect Pairings Series</em>.</p><h4>If you weren't a writer, what would you do?</h4><p>When I was a child, I wanted to be a lawyer; that's all I remember ever wanting to do. Once in college, my goal was to be a lawyer in the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG), but due to my asthma, I was ineligible to join the military.</p><h4>Do you use your local library? If so, which library is it?</h4><p>Saguaro Library</p>​<br></div>
