I haven't won any awards for writing although I did win one for reading once. I'm not a world traveler…yet. The books I write are light and romantic with a healthy dollop of humor and just a dash of angst."
The author goes on to say "I'm not curing cancer, but I do think reading stories that make us happy can't help but improve our lives. I fall in love with every character I write and hopefully my readers will too."
