I've always been a creative individual. Writing is just a facet of that creativity...
I write women's fiction, contemporary and historical romance, which is ever evolving. My careers in public relations, photography, editing and special event planning, among other professions have all given me a treasure trove for story lines.
In the three and a half short years since I began publishing my Romance stories, I have seen my historical-romance western series soar to #1 on Amazon. My novella Tudor Rubato was a finalist in the 2012 RONE (Reward of Novel Excellence) award, and the cover won for Best Contemporary Cover. I have also expanded my audience to include several now published by SecretCravings Publishing.
I hope my writing will entertain, enlighten, and inspire others to pick up the pen and pursue their own dreams. I love to be contacted by readers, writers and history buffs.
