About Beverly

I was the complete prototype of the rebellious teenager. So naturally the high school regimen and I did not exactly get along. To me, childhood was just something I had to get through before I could go out there and make my mark on the world. I remember once standing up in the middle of a chemistry class and announcing to my teacher that I didn’t need to understand the subject, because in a few years I was going to be writing for a living anyway. I failed the class, of course. Twenty years later I had to face that teacher at a school reunion and admit that when I had to research DNA for a book I’d recently written, I still had no idea what it was all about!

Since words are meant to be read and not eaten, I turned seriously to writing when I was twenty two and for a while the stars aligned themselves for me – I was single, my rent was astronomically low because I looked after the elderly lady who owned the building and having just been laid off from an advertising job due to budget cuts within the company, I had an employment cheque coming through weekly. That was when I decided it was now or never, and my first novel Emeralds in the Dark was born.

Since then I have published over a dozen titles including several romantic suspense and historical novels. I love to write about strong heroines with hidden soft spots and a penchant for getting themselves into trouble (figuring that I have had some experience myself in that area.)

Though I’ve lived in various places around the USA, I returned to my roots and now live on a barrier island off the coast of New Jersey with my son and a Chihuahua named Taco, where periodically I risk running into that chemistry teacher. Admittedly, though, I’m fair less rebellious these day…  I’d far more likely to tuck tail and run if I encountered someone I probably ticked off twenty five years ago!
