The theme of ‘home’ is prominent in the story of Home Ice as I believe it is an elusive, intangible place that some of us continue to search for. Other elements in the book were taken from my own life. I did have a great-grandmother who enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles and she even had a caretaker named Ruby. Even though the rest is fiction, it’s still very real to me. No matter how many characters I meet and who compel me to write their stories, Ben and Ally will always hold a special place in my heart.
It’s been nearly ten years since I took the leap into being a full-time author. I have found my home at my keyboard with the love and support of my wonderful, too-good-to-be-true husband. Yes, I’m still married to the man who inspires all of my nice-guy characters! We might not live in the same house we started out in or have the same pets, but our devotion to each other remains as steadfast as ever.
