A passion for reading & writing romance...

The fact that you've landed here tells me you're a fellow romance reader. Awesome! I'm a huge fan of romance novels -- I love reading them, and I especially love writing them.

Stories have always delighted me. I began writing my own in the third grade, the year my mom bought me my first diary. As I grew older, the urge to write grew stronger. I would wake up through the night to scribble down a scene or a line of poetry. I just *had* to create something.

My obsession with words and sentence rhythm continues today. I've tried not to write. (My life would be far simpler!) But I always come back to it. Writing brings me great joy. 

We are on this earth for such a short time; I decided early on that I want to focus on the good in life, on the beauty. So I write romance novels with happy endings. :)

I'm glad you've landed here. Please stay a while, look around, and be sure to sign up for my newsletter. I love keeping in touch with fellow romance readers!

If so, feel free to sink into a few of the spooky settings I've created in A DANGEROUS COURTSHIPa sweet Regency romance set in London and Yorkshire, and the award-winning PHANTOMa more sensual read set along the Sussex coast with its cliffs and caves and wind-blasted trees.

I like adding a Gothic touch to the tales I spin and would love to hear what you think. Please let me know!

Me ... atop a mesaSince I’ve been working on Sydney’s story, I’ve been thumbing through some of my Wyoming memories. 

To the left is a photo taken oh-so-long ago as I (finally) reached the top of a mesa in Ten Sleep, Wyoming, along with a few fabulous fellow Girl Scouts who kept me moving through the heat and hard work.

Years after the trek, I focused on the experience as a writing prompt.

In honor of memories—and of mesas!—I share the result near the bottom of this page .

I'm hoping you'll love Tess and Nick and their sweet (and adventurous!) love story as much as I do!

And I hope you'll stick with the series and enjoy Jesse and Sydney's adventure in Wyoming, which I'm working on now (see below).  



Books on library shelf

As I write this, I'm neck-deep in reading about hiking in the Wind River Range and surviving in the wild--all of which will help me tell Sydney and Jesse's story. 
I just finished reading Finis Mitchell's Wind River Trails . Published in 1999 by the University of Utah Press, it is a small guide written by a true mountain man.

I loved the snippets of poetry, and I especially enjoyed the stories of how Finis Mitchell (and others) stocked the high-mountain lakes with trout  -- a feat that spanned seven years, involved 314 lakes and the transportation of 2.5 million trout, all while still maintaining a fishing camp first begun in 1930. What a great tale this is! I am in awe of what Finis Mitchell accomplished ... and I am forever enthralled by the trails he tread and the words he wove about them.

He reminds me of my father, who was a true sportsman who loved and honored the outdoors. Finis Mitchell's book struck a strong chord with me. He wrote about the "solace and tranquility" found in the wilderness. As a young girl, I knew those very things as I followed in my father's footsteps through the woods. I found them again in the pages of this book.   


With the new year has come a new passion for my writing (yay!).
I'm working on the second story in my Texas Flyboys series , which means I've been stealing moments here and there to jot down ideas or snippets of scenes. 

I love the energy a new story stirs to life in me. And I love thinking about different characters ... what they should do, would do, could do. 

I especially love going "scene shopping" in my brain. Essentially, I choose every little nuance that will populate the big and not-so-big moments of the story. I've just begun building the scenes for Jesse and Sydney in Wyoming. 

(HINT: The scenes involve lots of action, and Jesse being oh-so-Jesse. ;)
