I live and play in Colorado where I write ADVENTUROUS ROMANCE, past, present, and into the future.

When not reading or writing I'm taking care of my Noah's Ark of animals including a goose, two ducks, two rabbits, two goats, two donkeys and three cats.

Regardless of time period, western, medieval, Victorian, or contemporary, my stories are sexy, adventurous, and always have a happy ending.
