Thanks for stopping by my site! I write women's fiction and contemporary romance—some steamy, some not. My books have been selected as “Top Picks” by RT Book Reviews, and critics at RT Book Reviews, Kirkus, and others have called my work “nuanced,” “heart-wrenching and emotional,” “well-crafted contemporary romance,” and “deeply moving storytelling.”


But it's reviews from readers that I treasure the most. I write emotional books with realistic characters and it means a lot to me when readers find a connection between my stories and their own lives.

I live in New England with my teenaged son and am an obsessive quilter (is there any other kind?). I've been writing stories since I was eight years old, but it took me a long time to make the leap to writing full time. In my "past lives," I've been a gymnastics coach, grocery store bagger, fast food cashier, medical school library clerk, advertising copywriter, communications manager, university writing instructor, and freelance business writer. Whew! But writing books for you is by far the best job.

If all goes well, I'll be a Parisienne and professional café lingerer in my next life.  :-)
