I gravitate toward stories with dark, brooding, isolated characters (think Heathcliff, Dracula, Darth Vader, and Severus Snape) and tough, independent, caring heroines. My reading tastes very widely, though, and I’ll read almost anything–especially paranormal romance, mysteries, and non-fiction on any new topic of interest.

I’m feel very honored to be a multi-published, award-winning author writing in different genres since I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was in sixth grade. For much of my professional career, I’ve written non-fiction — I’ve discovered writing romance is the most fun!

Life took a strange turn when I was younger and I ended up enlisting in the Marines, where I served in Parris Island, the California desert, and Okinawa, Japan. Then I backpacked alone through Europe,  and lived in Paris, France for little while. These experiences have provided me enough settings and characters for a lifetime of writing. Currently, I live in New England with my fantastic husband and kids.

“I love the descriptiveness of the setting and development of these characters. Really -you can almost hear the music as you read the openning scene in the underground night club 'vamps ' ,and then shes got you hooked on this story. You can feel the electricity between our heroine Nike and the sexy mysterious Michel. The Nike character is so relatable you are rooting for her from first page. I was impressed with the pace of this exciting book , it is exciting 'hot' and exciting suspenseful which is a great combination - 5 stars”
