On June 23rd, I'm releasing LAST FIRST KISS, the first in the Brightwater series (contemporary romance). The series will have several installments but can be read as stand alones or out of order.

“When a woman reads a romance novel, she is putting her own pleasure first. That small act of rebellion is perceived as a threat to the status quo. It’s also why this eternally popular and profitable genre has been scorned, ridiculed and dismissed.”
Maya Rodale

“I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it.”
Mae West

“There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."

(Keynote speech at Celebrating Inspiration luncheon with the WNBA's All-Decade Team, 2006)”
Madeleine Albright

“What's your name?"
"A.A.Winters."
"What, that's your name?"
"Yes," I said impatiently, "that's my name."
"That's what people call you?"
"Like in bed, or whatever? They call you A.A.Winters?"

“How can you like him? Even putting aside the fact you've spent the last five years telling me you're incapable of liking anyone, he makes Winnie-Pooh look like Kasparov."
"Well, I wasn't intending to play chess with him.”
