I wrote my first story -- a tragic romance about two star-crossed Mallard ducks -- as a second grade writing assignment. The paper earned a gold star. And I kept writing.
I've since written over a hundred novels and have been published in twenty-six countries. Two of my titles have been excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine and as a New York Times, U.S. Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller, I'm also a member of the Romance Writers of America's Honor Roll of best-selling authors.
I'm currently writing a new small town series for HQN set on Washington State's Olympic peninsula. Honeymoon Harbor is inspired by a Victorian seaport peninsula town my husband and I fell in love with over thirty years ago and visit often. It'll launch with an introductory novella (not a teaser, a full story!) in May, 2018, followed by the first full-length novel, Heron's Landing, in June.
I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband (and high school sweetheart), who proposed to me while we were whale watching at the sea wall where my Oregon Coast Shelter Bay books are set. We're still in the Pacific Northwest, but have since moved closer to Honeymoon Harbor.
