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. (Go, Tigers! Proud Mizzou alumna.) I've worked as a features and lifestyle staff reporter at three newspapers. Regular beats included television, pop culture, fitness, food, and fashion.
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 over here. They are often secondary characters in my novels. (Shout-out to my fur babies.)
Favorite colors: Neutrals. But I also like red.
Favorite TV Shows - (Both have wrapped.) Mad Men and Breaking Bad
Favorite Classic TV Show: I Love Lucy (I collect I Love Lucy stuff.)
I'm OBSESSED with yarn crafting ( all things knitting and crocheting). I did a blog post on this titled Stitch Away Stress. (Posted Sept. 28, 2020)
Favorite thing to crochet: Squishy, high texture blankets (Gimme all the cables and bobbles.)
Favorite thing to knit: Hats with juicy cables. (Bottom two hats in pic)
Favorite Reality Show Guilty Pleasure: The Bachelor/Bachelorette
Favorite Workout -- weights/running/walking.
