My favorite memories from childhood…

...revolve around books: the writing of them and the reading of them.

My adoration for characters and plotlines and adventures and imagination has taken me along with the Hardy Boys as they track down criminals and into the magical lives of Merlin and Arthur through the eyes of Mary Stewart.

I have enjoyed countless first kisses and happily-ever-afters and peeked inside the minds and madness of Thomas Harris's creations.

Nora Roberts—writing under the pseudonym J D Robb—sparked my interest in futuristic novels while Harper Lee inspired me to look beyond the artifice of the pages.

My lifetime contains countless nights of just-one-more-chapter promises only to wake up wondering what happens next.
