My husband (also a member of RWA) and I co-write our romantic suspense, erotic romance, YA, and new adult novels. We give workshops on how to Indie publish your book and how to write as a team, as well as being a hybrid author. We also speak on all elements of novel writing, including characterization, dialogue, plotting and editing. Our workshops can be as short as one hour or as long as a full day. Our Indie publish workshop is a hands-on demonstration of how to format your manuscript, design your cover, write your blurbs and upload your book on Amazon.

I sold my first contemporary romance novel to Dell for their Candlelight Ecstasy line.  That book made it on the New York Times' Bestsellers' LIst.  Since then, I've published 22 more novels through Dell, Harlequin, Crown and Meteor, all contemporary romances, and self-published two romantic suspenses, four YA romance time travel mysteries and two new adult romances.  My books have won many awards, including several Romantic Times' honors for Best Harlequin American Romance and WISH (Best Hero), Best Indie Young Adult Novel of 2013, Best Indie Suspense Novel of 2013 and several Readers' Favorite awards.  I've also written several award-winning screenplays.

I've been a finalist in the RITA contest and was awarded two service RITAs for my five years as a region 4 representative and Vice-President of RWA.  I was a co-founder of the Colorado RWA group and am currently a member of the Denver chapter.
