I am an instructional designer by day, writing and designing training programs for a national insurance company. By night,I  pen sexy contemporary romances all about family and hot lovin’. Ever since I discovered Jude Deveraux and Judith McNaught while sneaking around the library one day after school (I was barely 12 and mom had said no romance!), I have voraciously devoured all types of romance. I wrote my first romance in college then life took over and I didn’t get back to it until the late 1990’s when I was introduced to RWA thanks to Julia Quinn. I write all sorts of romances including contemporary, suspense, urban fantasy and paranormal. I have even written two cozy mysteries! I'm still looking for my niche in the publishing world but feels very close now. If only my cocker spaniel mix, Josie, would let me focus on writing instead of playing ball all day.

I am also a master procrastinator, with knitting as the main procrastination tool.
