I was born Phyllis Ashworth in Oak Park, Il., went to Morton High in Cicero and then Northwestern. Got married and divorced a couple of times, had three great kids, then moved to California where my "real" life began.
As a child I read everything I could get my hands on and I knew then that I wanted to be a writer. But life got in the way until I reached California and settled down with my third husband...the perfect one. We lived in the Bay Area for many years, then moved to the San Diego area for a while, but now live in a beautiful community in Palm Desert.
Here I write and am active in our local performing arts club. But mostly I write. I'm a member of Romance Writers of America as well as Mystery Writers of America and have recently formed a local writer's group in my community, dedicated to helping aspiring writers to network.
My credits include eight romance novels, the latest being ROMAN HOLIDAY, which was published in print in July 2009.I have also published a mainstream novel and a memoir of my husband's aunt.A member of Romance Writers of America, one of my books was a Golden Heart finalist and my romantic suspense novel won the San Diego Book Award.I was also a finalist in the 2009 St. Martin's Press Malice Domestic "Best First Traditional Mystery" contest.And I've sold a few short stories.
My non-fiction book, Wall Street on $20 a Month, was published by John Wiley & Sons, and I have sold many articles to such magazines as MS, Thin World, Savvy, Fact, Indianapolis, Campus Life, O-T-C Review, South Bay Accent and others. I have ghost-written three books, one published in the religious field and two self-published by a businessman client. Finally, I have had two radio scripts produced by American Radio Theater. My article, "Two-Part Harmony," was published in The Writer Magazine. The article, "Critique Groups, A Writer's Best Friend," appeared in San Diego Writers Monthly.
I have been on radio and television (for my non-fiction book), have participated in book signings in stores, plus book fairs, and have been featured in national and local magazines.
Finally, I am a member of Mensa and am listed in Who's Who in American Women. Oh, I should mention that my husband and I have a total of seven children and twenty-one wonderful grandchildren. But we don't have a lot of spare time!
