She held various jobs as a saleslady, a grocery store clerk, and a Proctor and Gamble material handler before having children and staying at home to raise them. She became enamored with the romance genre several years later, when she was sick at home with pneumonia and her sister brought her a bag of romances to read. Within two years she had a desire to write romances of her own. Five years after that, she had finished over ten manuscripts and finally sold one. Her first published novel was released by Harlequin in January 1996. Her second book launched the Harlequin Temptation Blaze series, and several years later she was also chosen to launch the Temptation Heat series. Foster also writes articles for a variety of publications and has a column in RWR on editor interviews.
