Tobacco baron Harry White is an amalgamation of real life tobacco baron Buck Duke and J.P. Morgan. At the height of his tobacco empire Duke had control of over 40% of the North American market and some control over the rest of the world’s tobacco as well. He is the reason Trinity college was renamed many decades ago as Duke University . Morgan, who was the richest man in the world in the early Twentieth Century, once saved the United States economy by lending the U.S. Treasury 65 million dollars in gold. I read about these men and thought it would be interesting to create a character that had all the wealth and power in the world, but was conflicted between his moral North Carolina upbringing and the life ... read more

I’d been an avid reader my entire life, but when I discovered romance novels during my first pregnancy I was hooked! Not sure if it was the hormones or the lack of a life that was headed my way once my daughter was born, but since then I’ve been devouring several romance books a week. I love nothing more than reading about some serious alpha males and a happily ever after.
Things you should know about me…I’m a fan of lists, so here’s mine:
1. I live outside Toronto, Canada…eh. (Yes, it’s true. We Canadians say ‘eh’ A LOT.)
2. I’m a wife and mommy to two small children which I refer to as Little Miss and Mr. Magoo.

I've been writing fiction almost as long as I can remember, starting with fan fiction at 13 (before I even knew there was a term for it). In my late teens, I tackled my first novel: a thriller from the most sedentary kid you'd ever known. It was every bit as bad as you're thinking.
A few years ago, I decided it was time to finally make my dream a reality. Inspiration for the characters in my Warlock Case Files series hit, and I started writing. Two published and two in the works later, I'm loving it!
