Thanks for visiting my website. I started my writing career after working as a legal assistant, and raising three children. I am married to Robert Baird, a retired military and airline pilot. We live in Arizona with our dog, Friday.

Writing, for me, is a joy, a challenge and a necessity. I hope
you have found that thing which distracts you from daily cares and leaves you satisfied. Reading can do that, and I hope that my books will reflect what is important in your life, what is fun and what is mysterious. I hope they will leave you with characters to remember and emotions to revisit.

Please visit my blog, While I generally use the blog for light-hearted essays about writing and self-publishing, I have currently posted a very important message about Designer Drugs and Our Kids. This is a worldwide underground marketing process that mercilessly targets our children.

On my second blog, you can find very short book reviews of both current books and some goodies that have been around for a while. My personal reading selections range from entertaining mysteries (Elizabeth George) to historical fiction (Isabel Allende) to literary gems by award winning and ethnic authors.
