I love to write love stories. When I’m not doing that, I write other stuff.
I’m the owner/operator of, and write all of the content for, All Things Cherokee, a respected resource for Cherokee genealogy and cultural information. I started the site in 1998, and today it boasts a Facebook following of over 280K.
And then there's Pleasant Valley Ranch, a comedy (at times, dramedy) DIY blog which has tracked the fourteen-year progress of remodeling an old house in east Austin, and how my husband and I have managed to stay married through it all.
- I have the same birthday as Lenny Bruce and Fox Mulder
- I’ve lived in Austin since 1995
- I’m a citizen of the Cherokee Nation
- I have a BA in History from the University of Texas at Austin
- I’m a member of Romance Writers Association, Author’s Guild, Indian Women's Pocahontas Club, and a founding member of First Families of the Cherokee Nation
- I swim at Barton Springs, drink Kraken rum, and watch people (not all at the same time, and not in a creepy way)
