Meet the Author

Growing up in the Midwest, I began reading romance novels in high school, immediately falling in love with the genre, to the point where I decided to write professionally for a career. However, that dream splattered against a brick wall and resulting quick death in my first writing class in college when my professor told me bluntly that I wasn’t any good at it. I shifted gears quickly, and left my writing dreams behind, eventually settling on being a nurse. A few years back, I stumbled across a fan-fiction writing site on a favorite author’s webpage. I began to read stories others wrote, not only making some wonderful close friends from the experience, but also, really learning to write for the very first time. Here I was able to share short stories, practice my writing skills, and truly develop into a writer. More than that, the experience allowed me to revitalize my dream, as I rediscovered joy in writing. When I’m not working or writing, I enjoy working in the garden, canning, and seeing my backyard as a living canvas for my whimsical landscaping, and, of course, reading romance novels.

    Love it!! This is a wonderful book. The author gives you charact

    Love it!! This is a wonderful book. The author gives you characters to relate to and care about. Brie and Rye have a wonderfully twisted path that keeps you reading to the end and wishing it didn't end. The author has a quirky sense of humor that comes through in some of the hilariously funny comments made by Brie, to her embarrassment much of the time. Rye is one of those guys that women pray wander into their lives, even for a little while. The love scenes sizzle and burn. Welcome to a wonderful new author!!!
