First things first. My name is pronounced Ree-on LOW-dah. (Reon rhymes with neon.) A pen name would've made my writing life much easier. lol
I'm a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism. I've worked as a features and lifestyle staff reporter at three newspapers. Regular beats included television, pop culture, fitness, food, 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. We have a teen son. (Oh, boy! lol)
Did I mention I'm the BIGGEST pop culture junkie and TV/movie buff? And a cat whisperer. (Shout-out to my fur babies.)
I'm a southern gal. Grew up in the Bluff City Memphis, Tn. (Still have family there.) Oh, how I miss the BBQ!
