Biography

As both a reader and a writer, I'm a lifelong lover of the written word. I started my writing career as a newspaper columnist for my hometown daily newspaper where I worked from 1986-2007. When I began writing fiction, I chose the genre I enjoyed reading—romance. To date, my books cover a variety of genres: World War II romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, historical mystery, and the supernatural.
