About Me

Early days of reading romance novels and women's fiction laid the groundwork for me to take up the pen and write my own memorable love stories.

My writing consists of sensual contemporary western romance with strong family ties, an occasional paranormal romance, and romantic fiction.

Photography is my second love. Making photo collages is something I like to do with my photos. Reading soothes and relaxes me and is a necessity. I enjoy reading mostly on my Kindle Fire or iPad nowadays, but would never turn away a paperback, or a trip to a bookstore.

Going to the theater, opera, and the symphony, could very well become a hobby. Walks in the park with my dog when the weather is decent clears my head.
