I was always a bookworm. I think most authors are. I started reading romance when I was about 12 or 13, and the first romance novel I read was Victoria Holt’s The Secret Woman. I went on to read all of Ms. Holt’s books and started devouring all the gothic romances of that time. I’m also a huge Georgette Heyer fan and have read all of her books.
As an English major at UCLA, I read a heavy dose of the classics, and later I started reading a lot of non-fiction and true crime. What better way to combine my love of romance with my interest in true crime than by writing romantic suspense?! I have written over 45 books for Harlequin Intrigue (check out my Books page!), and have self-published a few more books, including a romantic comedy (check out my Indie Books page!).
I live near the beach in Southern California, and when I’m not writing, I’m reading, running on the beach, and being walked by my English Mastiff. I have two sons in their 20's and a husband retired from law enforcement, who gives me an idea or two.
I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them. I love hearing from readers, so let me know what’s on your mind. Also, follow me on Facebook and subscribe to my newsletter for news and contests.
