The daughter of an English teacher and a freelance writer, I knew I wanted to be a novelist at the tender young age of twelve. Armed with a college ruled notebook and a ballpoint pen, I set out to write my first manuscript, but quit after seven pages to finish my math homework.

Several years and many short stories later, I decided to take another crack at it. My first book, A Death That Lingers released in November 2011 by Beachwalk Press. It was followed by Falling In Danger, Teaching Officer Lonesome and Taming Johnny, all contemporary romances featuring sexy cop heroes. I currently have a list of story ideas that nag me on a daily basis, most of which have a dash of suspense or paranormal to keep me on my toes.

I live at the base of the mountains in Southern Oregon with a very supportive (and handsome) husband, two adorable little girls, two slightly less adorable cats, and a mutt named Pedro. I spend my time reading, writing, cuddling my girls and dreaming of my next novel.
