Thank you for stopping by my Goodreads page!

I live in the beautiful hills of Anaheim, California with Teddy, my goofy lowland sheepdog, and my high school sweetheart of twelve wonderful years. I enjoy writing poignant romances that challenge the reader’s emotions and explore the redeeming power of love. My stories are darker than most traditional romance novels and contain a distinct Gothic flavor.

Imagining dynamic worlds and characters has been my passion for longer than I can remember. Before learning how to read or write, I would dictate stories while my mom would jot them down for me. I hold a special affinity for the tortured hero and unconventional romances. Whether crafting the protagonist or antagonist, I ensure every character is

I have always been drawn to the darker facets of love, and this served as a central inspiration for the characters and storyline.

I had yearned to create a pair of star-crossed lovers whose deep affection for each other could triumph over seemingly impossible odds. Aleksender and Sofia are two flawed characters who are made perfect only through their love.

Nineteenth century France has always been a passion of mine, and, after some research, I quickly knew it would be the ideal setting for Aleksender and Sofia. It was a time of conflict, political intrigue, art, and romance. I grew up on Paris-set musicals, such as Les Misérables and The Phantom of the Opera—and they continue to inspire my imagination and characters. After researching the 1871 Paris Commune, I molded the era into a dynamic backdrop for Aleksender and Sofia’s love story to unfold. In the process, I learned more than I ever could’ve imagined about the period. Quite simply, I fell head over heels in love with France. ♥(less)

“All beauty must have its imperfections, all happiness its share of sorrow.”
Susan Kay, Phantom

“I want you any way I can get you. Not because you’re beautiful or clever or kind or adorable, although devil knows you’re all those things. I want you because there’s no one else like you, and I don’t ever want to start a day without seeing you.”
Lisa Kleypas, Tempt Me at Twilight

“With every fragment of rock that fall from me, I can hear the voice of Marianne Engle. I love you. Aishiteru. Ego amo te. Ti amo. Eg elska pig. Ich liebe dich. It is moving across time, coming to me in every language of the world, and it sounds like pure love.”
Andrew Davidson, The Gargoyle

“You are mine,I am yours; you may be sure of this. You've been locked inside my heart, the key has been thrown away; within it, you must always stay. ”

Brittany Thank you and same wishes to you! I am only about 12% in, but I already love it. I am so used to the Parisian and historic scene from you, that it is interesting to read a book located in Oregon, but still spectacular already!


Brittany Thank you and Happy new Year to you, may 2016 bring more romance in your life and the lives you share with others through your stories. I have Kindled Winter ready to start after my current Kindle book. Very excited about it!
