R.T. was born and raised in the Midwest, the youngest of six children. She married at a young age and decided early she wanted a family herself. With three small boys, she and her husband flipped two houses with R.T. in charge of the landscaping and her husband, the woodworking and trim. Now, they are rooted in the final home they created and designed.
Now that the boys are nearly grown, R.T. spends much of her time on the road traveling from one sporting event to another serving as mom and cheerleader. When at home, she enjoys Pilates, working with her Golden Retriever and digging in the glorious dirt of her landscaping plots all to the sound of the constant miter box or belt sander coming from the double-garage they included in their home design.
During one restless night the romantic suspense, the Black Creek Series began finding its way on the keyboard of R. T.’s laptop. Writing became a drug and R.T. found her true home. Several revisions and versions later, Black Creek Burning, was published in 2012.
