Wright was born in Minnesota. As an adult, she pursued a career as an actress, singer, and competitive ballroom dancer, teaching ballroom dancing and Latin dancing for over a decade. After many years of reading romance novels, Wright left dancing and attempted to write romantic fiction. After three years of writing, she sold a manuscript to Harlequin books for their Silhouette Desire line of category romances.
Wright has been twice nominated for a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award, for 2002's Baby and the Beast and in 2004 for Redwolf's Woman. She is married and lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband and their two children.
