I grew up in a small rural town where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be because everybody in my family sings like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories-ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories. 

For as long as I can remember I've been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It's hard to make listeners sit still while I tell them a whole book! Like my family's tales, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal and, I hope, entertaining.

Besides writing, my interests are reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley.

I have two ongoing mystery series, Death by Chocolate (Death by Chocolate; Murder, Lies and Chocolate; and The Great Chocolate Scam, Chocolate Mousse Attack, and Fatal Chocolate Obsession) and Charley's Ghost (The Ex Who Wouldn't Die, The Ex Who Glowed in the Dark, The Ex Who Conned a Psychic, and The Ex Who Saw a Ghost). Death by Chocolate and The Ex Who Wouldn't Die are USA Today Bestsellers.

I also sold fifteen romance novels ranging from comedy to dark suspense under the names Sally Carleen, Sally Steward and Sara Garrett. For those novels, I won several awards including National Readers' Choice, Romantic Times Best Silhouette Romance and two Rita finalist slots.

Contact information is available on my website. I love to talk to readers! And writers. And riders. And computer programmers. And teachers. And gardeners. And dogs. And puppets and poets and pirates and pawns and kings. Okay, I just plain love to talk!
