About Me

By tree cropped

I write the same kind of romances I like to read – stories about characters facing real-life challenges with real-life consequences. The stories are emotional, but still have humor, and love always finds a way to pull the characters through together.

I live in coastal North Carolina with 100 pounds of dog and 200 pounds of husband – my slice of the bed is very small. When I’m not writing or reading romance novels (or clinging to the edge of the bed…), I can often be found on the back porch sipping wine with friends while listening to an eclectic playlist. If the weather is absolutely perfect, I might join my husband on the golf course, where I always feel far more competitive than my actual skill-level would suggest.

I am represented by Veronica Park of Corvisiero Literary Agency. I am a member of Romance Writers of America and Heart of Carolina Romance Writers.

While I still like to read historical romance at times, the current batch of contemporary writers (Jill Shalvis, Mariah Stewart, Susan Mallery, Brenda Novak) pointed me in the direction of what I knew I wanted to write – emotional, funny, feisty romances that readers could relate to in their everyday lives. My contemporary romance novels have touches of humor, drama, mystery, sensuality, and above all: the healing magic of true and forever love.

Just like in my stories, life isn’t always easy or without complications, but Himself (it’s an Irish thing) and I laugh every day and we make the effort to keep things sexy and fun and rewarding in this crazy partnership otherwise known as marriage.
