Welcome to my world! Come in,

I grew up in a small rural town
in southeastern Oklahoma 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 due to the fact that everybody in my family
has a singing voice 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 for the length of a
book! Like my family's tales, my stories are funny,
scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic.
Besides writing, my interests are
reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley.
Death by Chocolate is the first
of three books in that series. Murder, Lies and
Chocolate is the second, and The Great Chocolate
Scam is the third. There will be more! The Ex Who
Wouldn't Die is another cozy mystery, and the second
book in that series will be released shortly.
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.
Most of the Silhouettes are available as e-books,
and I have e-pubbed five of the out-of-print single
Contact information is available
on my website. I love to talk to readers! And
writers. And riders. And computer programmers. Okay,
I just plain love to talk!
