I’m thrilled to share the wonderful news that beginning next month, new-to-Harlequin author Helen DePrima and I will be teaming up to bring you our special blend of heartwarming fun, facts, and possibly a little frolicsome entertainment here on the blog. We hope you’ll join us every third Thursday as we share news about our upcoming books and our writing lives, fill you in on our current interests and activities...and of course there will be contests and giveaways. For now, here's a little about us.
I was born and raised a Kentuckian, growing up on horseback at the boarding stable/riding academy on my grandfather’s farm near Louisville. After spending a week on a dude ranch in Colorado when I was twelve, (2000 head of cattle and twenty head of dudes), I fell in love with all things Western.
In addition to writing, my interests are knitting, quilting, photography and travel. I'm an avid fan of professional bull riding, as my books attest.
From the time I was ten years old and read Anne of Green Gables and Little Women, I wanted to be a writer, just like Anne and Jo. I grew up with a very supportive family, so when I started writing romance, I gravitated to close-knit communities and characters with strong family values.
When I'm not writing, I love cooking, hosting family dinners (I go all out with table settings!), interior decorating, animals in general and pets in particular.
We both look forward to chatting with you next month!
Lee & Helen
