Once upon a time I “borrowed” my mother’s romance novels in my early teen years, and from that moment I was thoroughly hooked and lost in the world of romance. Going through college and graduate school didn’t decrease the love of dashing knights, gallant and honorable military officers, and sexy detectives who were strong, yet vulnerable underneath. In fact, it was my coveted outlet from the many hours of practicing my saxophone, playing in ensembles, and writing boring business case studies.
With so many characters floating around in my head for more years than I will admit, I decided it was time to put those characters onto the page. When I stopped working in Corporate America to raise my children and moved to the suburbs, the words started to flow.
I’m a Soldiers Angel and every month (without fail in over three years) I have the pleasure of sending a little bit of home to those troops who are serving overseas. That’s a whole lot of cookies! I salute all the men and women in uniform for their service and sacrifices and I thank them for the inspiration for my stories.
Currently residing in New Jersey – with my own hero - my husband, two wonderful and over-active sons, and a fat cat named Hamlet, I begin my journey to publication.
