They married several years later and now have two sons. After graduation, Ridgway spent several years working as a technical writer and a computer programmer. While her sons were young, she rediscovered the joys of reading romance novels, and decided that she wanted to write the same kind of books, ones that provided both "entertainment and emotional satisfaction."
