A 2003/04 recipient of the Alice B. award for her body of work as well as a member of the Golden Crown Literary Society, Pink Ink, and the Romance Writers of America, she lives with her partner Lee in Upstate New York. Previously combining a full-time private clinic (where she worked as plastic surgeon) with writing books, she has since retired from medicine to devote herself full-time to writing.
