I’m a mild mannered accountant by day and romance author by night. Married 28 years I believe in happily-ever-after! I enjoy Zumba, watching sports, and reading.

I’m often asked where I get my ideas. Well, here you go…

Playing For Keeps: I love football and I when I was younger I thought about being a sportswriter but at that time women received a lot of grief. Heck, it still happens from time to time.

Going For It: Jake and Hannah were inspired by Tom Brady and Giselle Buchen’s marriage. Only Jake is a yummy half Italian and half African-American (think Vin Diesel) hero.

Love By Design: My countless hours of watching HGTV paid off!


Fun Fact 1: I read my first romance at the age of fifteen and soon after wrote my first romances starring my friends and their latest crushes!

Fun Fact 2: I keep inspiration boards for her books (and other fun stuff) on Pinterest. Check it out here:

Fun Fact 3: Playing For Keeps won the NECRWA First Kiss Contest. My handyman husband built a frame for the certificate and hung it on the wall by my desk as a surprise! (now THAT is a hero!)
