Writing has always been a passion of mine. I wrote my first story over thirty years ago. Since then, I've written numerous stories and have had several articles published. My first love, however, is writing romance novels. I write both inspirational and historical romance (with a mild inspirational edge).
In October 2008, my first historical romance, The Commander’s Desire, was published by The Wild Rose Press. It has received numerous accolades, including a "Top Pick" rating from "Romance Reader at Heart" and numerous five star reviews. In addition, the hero of the novel was designated "Reader's Favorite Hero" for 2009 at a popular blog. My second book, a contemporary inspirational romance novel, Her Reluctant Bodyguard, has just been released by Diamond Press, and has been receiving excellent reviews from readers.
I am blessed with a wonderful, supportive husband, and three terrific children who put up with my crazy writing hours. When I am not writing, I love reading, photography, making videos, and creating and managing my websites.
I'd like to give a shout out to some of my favorite sites:
