I wrote my first romance novel when I was 16 and living in England. History and travel are my passions, and I enjoy sweeping readers away to distant times and places in the pages of my books. I joined RWA fresh out of college, and finally achieved my dream of being a published author after years of rejections, manuscripts collecting dust under the bed, and numerous life changes that resulted in a wonderful husband and two incredible kids. Now living on Florida's beautiful Gulf coast, I love to travel, read the Harry Potter series all over again, and quilt. And I write a little bit, too.
