As I approach the launch of the latest installment in my Redwood Violet series, I find myself reflecting back on the very first character I ever created--Kate Reid, our heroine of the story. Over the course of these now, four books in the series, Kate has evolved to su...

As a child who lived a fairly nomadic existence while growing up, I’ve had the opportunity to experience life in a variety of locations within the United States. As an adult, I’ve stayed put for the most part in the place where I was born, the desert southwest.
