I grew up in a very small town in Central New York, and i mean so small if you blinked you missed it. I learned to love everything small town and I miss it everyday I'm away. I recieved my Bachelors Degree in Paralegal Studies in 2009, but have been resigned to working retail. There I met my best friend who re-ignited my passion for all things paranormal. Putting pieces together from stories I had written in childhood, I came up with my first short book, Siofra's Song. From there I've gone wild with Siofra's world and expanded into contemporary romance. My Wakefield Romance series centers around a small town in Virginia and women who fall in love with Navy SEALs and the struggles they go through to be together. In the near future I will also be expanding into historical romance with my Viking Dreams Series. I hope you like them and follow me on Twitter and join my Facebook page!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a very small town in Central New York. Being part of a tight community where everyone knows everyone has made me who I am. It comes through in my writing, because most the time my stories are in small towns, it's what I know. You get to read about the 'he-said-she-said' 'everyone knows your business' side of small town life, along with a healthy dose of country living.
When did you first start writing?
I would say probably sixth grade when we first had the opportunity for a creative writing class.

A good sequel. The last maybe 20 pages I read so fast just to find out what happens, but it was worth it. Lucky n Jesse r meant for one another. She says she's not sure if she's gonna write another, personally I'd love another, but if not I'm happy with the way it ended. Great read!
