My name is pronounced Ree-on LOW-dah. Reon rhymes with neon-- NOT Simone. (Sorry, lifetime pet peeve. lol.) I'm a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism. I've worked as a features and lifestyle reporter at three major newspapers. Regular beats have included television, pop culture, fitness, and fashion. The Gannett and Scripps Howard wire services distributed my work to newspapers across the country. Check out the "My Books" page for more information on my available titles. I'm a wife. Yes, married my own romance novel hero. I'm the mother of the funniest boy. I'm the BIGGEST pop culture junkie and TV/movie buff.
I enjoy working out, especially running. I do needlework (knitting and crocheting) when I can squeeze it in.
Good coffee and my Kindle Paperwhite are the perfect combo. Lucy Ricardo is my girl,a kindred spirit, so I collect I Love Lucy dolls by Mattel.(Photo at left is just a sampling of my Lucy stash.)
