I was born in St. Petersburg, Florida and grew up on St. Pete Beach within spitting distance of the Gulf of Mexico. I went, appropriately enough, to Sunshine Elementary School where recess and art class sometimes took place on the beach, and the highlight of every school year was the annual fish broil.

It's hard to be a type-A personality when you grow up in such a laid back environment, but I managed. Convinced that you were expected to know how to read BEFORE you showed up for school, I forced a neighbor friend to teach me to read at the age of five. I've been reading ever since.

Books, in all forms, are one of my greatest pleasures and best forms of escape. And they've had a major impact on my life.

I went to the University of Georgia after reading Gone with the Wind one too many times. For a while I re-read Margaret Mitchell's classic yearly, saw the movie whenever it played within twenty miles, and could quote large passages from memory. Today I have a growing GWTW collection, and one of my sons is reading my original copy.

After college I worked in radio, television, and film. I've done live talk radio. I hosted a show in the eighties called Desperate & Dateless. I fell in love and happily, the man who swept me off my feet consults with financial types and understands the bottom line. We live in Atlanta with our two sons.

I'd love to hear from you. You can email me at It's always great to hear from readers.
