Love living in California, even though I'm a transplant. Love writing and all it entails, crazy characters demanding to be let loose on the page, long hours of research, every bit of it. I raised two children and spent about twenty years in real estate before I summoned the courage to quit and do what I always wanted to do, WRITE! While he was alive my husband was my first-stop editor and biggest fan. Now that my children are accustomed to my writing sexy novels they're equally supportive.

Guilty Secrets released and is getting rave reviews at Amazon. Since this is the book of my heart… I’m very pleased.


Paranormal, Historical
Romantic Suspense, Erotic
                                                Guilty Secrets                       

Can love really conquer all? Escaping her cruel father’s home had been difficult, but not as difficult as evading her feelings for Adam, her rescuer and the powerful Earl of Landry. Corrie disagrees with him on his political views, but cannot help melting in his arms.  Their marriage is passionate, although Adam’s dreadful nightmares are a barrier she cannot breach. But when danger strikes Corrie and her sister Sarah, Adam is the one she turns to. Adam is frantic to save the woman he has come to love.  But is their love strong enough to make him finally reveal his guilty secrets?
My 34th book, My Elusive Earl, going to print edition in August. Big news to me!

Guilty Secrets doing well, and now My Elusive Earl is available. Do give this one a try! He's a VERY elusive gentleman!

Ebook version of My Elusive Earl arrived October 17th, complete with this gorgeous new cover. I told the artist I wanted a sexy man on the cover and she cheerfully obliged. I'm of the opinion beautiful girls have their place on covers, but I like this handsome hunk. Hope you agree....

Guilty Secrets is doing well, with four reviews already up at Amazon.  Three of them are five star reviews and the other is four and a half, so I can’t ask for better than that.
