Reality Check!


Suddenly I find myself wondering if this is real. Pinching my arm doesn't make me wake up. I have always, always wanted to write romance novels. Ever since I started sneaking Harlequin books from my grandma's house when I was fifteen.

I wrote my first story, about a horrible gorilla spirit that chased after the young girls who moved into his house when I was an early teen. It seems silly now but at the time just writing it gave me nightmares. I realized then, writing anything besides romance wasn’t for me.

But life gets in the way, like it somehow seems to do, offering the perfect excuses to not start writing that day.

Then I got to a point where my head was so full of stories I worried they would fall out and spill all over the place. So, I started writing. What started out as a hobby turned into an obsession. I can’t stop now. I write every single day and I love every moment of it.

Being published is a dream come true. It’s indescribable the feeling I had after seeing my name at the bottom of my first book.

Writing is no longer a hobby for me, it’s a way of life. One that I happily live!

First Release!

My first release was inspired by a little fender bender I had while backing out of a parking space at our local mall. I had been working all day in the crush of the Holiday season. I waited patiently as a car went past behind me and then I slowly started to back out. The young woman who had just drove past, while talking on her cell phone, slammed on her breaks suddenly and backed up without ever looking behind her. Unfortunately for her she backed right into my car, mind you I was only two feet out of my spot. Luckily she left only a scuff mark on my car. But the story took off from there, I wrote it months later and it evolved into Kris and Mark's story. While my temper is nowhere near Kris's, I did explain the hazards of driving while talking on your cell to the young girl. ;)

Excited new Author!

Hello all! I am so excited about the release of my second book, "Unleashing the Animal"! I have always wanted to write romance novels and after several years of thinking about it, I finally got the nerve to submit a manuscript to a publisher. It's a long and winding road, with some deep pot holes along the way. :) But I'm a firm believer that getting there is half the fun!
