I write simply because the stories and ideas have been trapped in my head since I was a kid. I was not into reading as a child mainly because it was forced on me and I was not allowed to discover it on my own. However, I have been making up stories and telling them since I could talk and once I got exposed to books I liked I was hooked.
Unlike many authors, my read list is still small mainly because I found myself watching more than reading. It seems to be a taboo to say that since most writers have read a ton of books. For this and other reasons I guess I do not consider myself a normal writer, more a storyteller.
I write based on visuals and try to pace more like a series of televisions shows. I deeply care ... read more

First and foremost, I love life. I love that I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister...and a writer.
I am one of the lucky women in this world who gets to do what makes them happy. As long as I have a cup of coffee (maybe two or three) and my laptop, the stories evolve themselves and I try to do them justice. I draw my inspiration from a retired Marine Master Sergeant that swept me off of my feet and has drawn me into a world that fulfills all of my deepest and darkest desires. Erotic romance, military men, intrigue, with a little bit of kinky chili pepper (his recipe), fill my head and there is nothing more satisfying than making the hero and heroine fulfill their destinies.
