I write from my suburban home where I live with my husband and teenaged son and sometimes my daughter, who is mostly away at college.
With a degree in Journalism, I began my writing career as a newspaper reporter, then moved into corporate communications, writing and editing for business-related employee, company and industry publications.
Books have always been a part of my life, and reading has always been a favorite pastime – from my childhood bookworm days when I would hide away with Trixie Belden or Laura Ingalls Wilder, to my busy parenting days when I forgo laundry, housecleaning and sleeping to carve out time for my latest book club read. I love curling up with a cup of tea and getting lost in a good story.
A couple of years ago I decided to sit down at my computer and give voice to some stories that have been rattling around in my head for a long time. That launched me into the world of fiction writing, specifically the world of romance. So far, my completed novels and works-in-progress fall into the genres of women’s fiction, contemporary romance, and mainstream with romantic elements.
My novels are about people and their relationships – what brings them together, what keeps them apart, what brings them joy or annoys the hell out of them. My intent is to bring to life interesting and ‘real’ characters that you, the reader, can relate to in real-life situations that combine a little fun, plenty of drama (with perhaps a tear or two), and big helpings of friendship, love and self-discovery, and will leave you either cheering or sighing with a satisfied smile as you turn the final page.
And just so you know . . . I like a happy ending.

Imagine finding out you have a 16 year old son from a one night stand when you were still in high school. Add to that, his mother left him with his grandparents when he was 5. You find out about him because he was in a horrible accident that leaves him handicapped and scarred and his grandparents can no longer take care of him due to health issues. Add some love interest and you have one interesting story.
This is also a romance novel, a second plot expertly woven throughout the story. Kate is drawn to Matt, although she fights it because she is the new principal of Brady's school. She doesn't want to be accuse of anything immoral or showing favoritism. Chance meetings and issues with Brady at school keep bringing them together. Adding more interest to the story.
This was a great story that I couldn't seem to put down
