I live and write in Lakewood, Colorado, and if I peek around one corner of my balcony, I have a wonderful view of the front range of the Rocky Mountains.
I was a teacher and librarian, and somehow, with hard work and a little luck, I’ve found a third career as a writer. I love the sound of that! In the summer of 2012, Delacorte Press published my debut novel, KISSING SHAKESPEARE, a time-travel romance for teens. In December of 2013, my second novel, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE sequel, was published by William Morrow, THE PURSUIT OF MARY BENNET. It's about the socially awkward middle Bennet sister, Mary, and her journey of self-discovery. If you’re an Austen fan, I hope you’ll read it.
KISSING SHAKESPEARE won the Colorado Book Award in 2013, and THE PURSUIT OF MARY BENNET was a finalist for the CBA in 2014.
In June of 2016, my first Regency romance, A FALSE PROPOSAL, will be published by Entangled Publishing.
I share something in common with you—I love to read! I love historical fiction, mysteries, YA, mainstream and women’s fiction, and fantasy. I’m always curious about what other people are reading, because whatever that is might become my new favorite book.
My husband and I have done several walking trips in England, Scotland, and France. That means going from one town to the next, on foot, sometimes fifteen miles a day! It was on one of these walks that I discovered Hoghton Tower, the setting of KISSING SHAKESPEARE.
