I was small town girl who got a hell of an education about life and the world when I moved to the city. By day I work like a regular lady, but by night I write stories to warm a person's soul and…uh…other parts of their body. I like to write about strong, independent women who love giving their hearts and bodies to alpha males who are more than up for the challenge. I want the stories I write to embellish the lives we lead. There’s some fun, laughter, romance, heartbreak, reality, and happiness.

I might be a grown up who writes some very spicy love stories, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love hello kitty, high heels, art, and travel. However, my first love will always be to that majestic, powerful force of nature called coffee.

I gather inspiration from the world around me, as I’d imagine most authors do. Don’t discount the flood of imagination that can come from people watching. I love to travel the world and watch the people who inhabit it. I love to have my eyes opened to new things – places, food, music, people and points of view. The world is a huge, amazing place and I want to experiences as much of it as I can.
