My heart is filled with romantic stories, my shelves are loaded with chocolate and my lips are always longing for one more cup of Starbucks. Besides that, I write for Love Inspired Historical and am a happy mom to a bunch of little boys. I love connecting with readers and writers.

“She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.”
Louisa May Alcott, Work: A Story of Experience

“Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.”
Amos Bronson Alcott, Tablets

“The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely.”
Louisa May Alcott

“That is a good book it seems to me, which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.”
Louisa May Alcott

“There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind.”
Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
