As the founder of Gold Dust Editing and Book Promotions, Gold Dust Literary Agency, and FiBs, I'm an entrepreneur at heart. I have a Bachelor of Criminology and a Master of Business Administration. A former private investigator, my investigative skills and knowledge of the law come in handy when editing mystery, suspense, and crime novels. An avid romance reader, I review the genre for Publishers Weekly and freelance edit for Hallmark Publishing and Harlequin. Other than reading, my hobbies include traveling, watching movies, and going to stage plays. I currently live in North Texas as the proud mother of two adult males and a teenage daughter.
