Writing has always been part of my life and I love to share my imaginary worlds! I've recently published book 7 in the Women of Stampede Series, entitled Trick of the Heart (available on Amazon and Kobo). I'm currently working on another a romance mystery novel set on the island of Maui. For me, romance writing is a way to bring adventure, love and joy into the world through my characters and their stories. My special interests include contemporary, paranormal and historical genres, especially in the medieval and regency periods.
