I’m surrounded by boys ~ my hubby (and high school sweetheart), two kids, and the cutest mini Labradoodle in existence. (The hubby and kids are pretty cute too.) I’m a Southern California girl and there’s no place I’d rather be than the beach. However, I long to go on adventures and there are many places that I really want to visit – Paris, Ireland, Costa Rica, Yellowstone National Park, Italy, London, and so many more. I have a major crush on two fictional characters: Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files books, and Remy Chandler from Thomas Sniegoski’s Remy Chandler novels. When I’m not writing, I love to read, bake, and go to the movies. I also run a few times a week on my treadmill while watching my favorite TV shows. I drive too fast, drink too much caffeine, and if every day were Cupcake Day, I’d be a happy camper! Oh, and I love dumb blonde jokes.
