I had my first ever head-shot taken in November of 1997. At the time, I'd published two Regency Romances, but my first single-title contemporary romance, "Annie's Wild Ride" was about to come out Summer of 1998, and I needed an author photo.

I had it done the same day I did the photos for my press credential at the 1998 Nagano Olympics.

I was 28 years old, single, and alternating free-lance, television production work in skating and soap operas with writing novels and assorted articles and short stories for publications ranging from "International Figure Skating Magazine" to "Lilith" to "Black Diaspora."

This past November, eleven years after the first, I finally had another shot done. Now I was 39 years old, married with three kids (in fact, my solo shot was part of our holiday card session), the author of five figure skating mysteries, three non-fiction books on skating, four romance novels, and two soap opera tie-in books, with a third, "The Man From Oakdale" set to hit the shelves in January 2009. I still freelance occasionally, but mostly on issues of multicultural family life and parenting.

They're two pictures of me, but they present a pair of completely different people.
