|Steamy, evocative...romance at its best!|
I'm a multi-published author who specializes in contemporary romances. I've always had a passion for writing very sensual stories that incorporate some suspense and/or humor. My books have been translated into more than a dozen foreign languages, into electronic format, and have been re-issued in trade paperback as well as large print library editions. Most recently, I'm also working on audio books.
My own personal hero is a former Marine who helped me create three beautiful, intelligent children. Our family lives in rural Ohio. In my free time, I enjoy bird watching, gardening and reading. I also love being in or near large bodies of water and spending time with my family:-)
