I write the same kind of romances I like to read – stories about characters facing real-life challenges with real-life consequences. The stories are emotional, but still have humor, and love always finds a way to pull the characters through together.

I live in coastal North Carolina with 100 pounds of dog and 200 pounds of husband – my slice of the bed is very small. When I’m not writing or reading romance novels (or clinging to the edge of the bed…), I can often be found on the back porch sipping wine with friends while listening to an eclectic playlist. If the weather is absolutely perfect, I might join my husband on the golf course, where I always feel far more competitive than my actual skill-level would suggest.

All of the stories are small-town romances that take place in the fall - when the weather cools down, hearts heat up! My novella, Meet Me in the Middle, will take place in Gallant Lake (the setting of Nora's Guy Next Door). I'm also working on more full-length romances that take place in and around Gallant Lake, NY.

No matter how much we like to make plans, life has a way of throwing up roadblocks and detours. And some of the most unexpected (and even unwanted!) detours take us to exactly where we were meant to be. Nora is a super-planner (something I'm not!) who learns that sometimes the unexpected moments in life are the most magical. (less)

“Attraction can happen fast, but that doesn't mean anything if it isn't followed by an emotional connection. Without that, it's just a fun backseat romp that leaves you feeling empty after.”
