Stuck on love & happy endings
Charissa is a wife, mother, writer, reader, & believer that life should be joyful. She hails from Las Vegas, Nevada (the glitzy desert), but has never pulled a handle of a slot machine & can't shuffle cards to save her life. She does know how to shuffle her way through a Vegas buffet line though.

She lived in Boise, Idaho for 10 years, but now lives in Utah, where she's discovered lots of hot chocolate flavors to try (dark chocolate is her favorite...this week). She's married to her high school sweetheart & has 4 children who make her smile all the time. 

Happily-ever-afters are a must for her, so she sticks like a cactus to writing romance. Her Bending Willow Trilogy is romantic suspense, Between Hope & the Highway is a cowboy romance that leans toward Women's Fiction, & the Ruled Out Romances
are contemporary lighter
