I grew up in sunny South Florida and learned to tell stories at an early age. When I married my true-life hero, we moved to five cities in seven years, before we finally settled in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas where I became a stockbroker and Certified Financial Planner. Texas was good to us. I met many wonderful Texans and learned a lot that I later used in my books.
After a few years, my mother had a disabling stroke and we moved to southern California to be close. That’s where I began my writing career. After Mom passed away, my husband and I moved back to South Florida and now live near the Florida Keys.
Since my first book was accepted by Harlequin in 2002, I have written thirty four books which I am proud to say have been honoured with many presitgious awards in the romance community, including The Reader’s Choice Award, Write Touch Readers Award, Holt Medallion Award of Merit, Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award, and the Maggie Award for Short Contemporary Romance.
Though my life is now crammed with writing projects, I manage to find time for family and especially for our loveable Bichon Frieze named KiKi. My current passions are reading, boating and playing poker with my friends.
Adding suspense to my emotional love stories has taught me a lot about looking deep to find the truth that lies within us all. Taking a journey to the truth can be one of the most challenging voyages in life. I love writing about it. I also love hearing from my readers about how my books have affected their lives. If you'd like to get in touch, you can find me at my website, or on Facebook or Twitter. I'd love to hear from you.
