I’m a mild-mannered administrative assistant by day, and a hopeless romantic weaving tales of happily-ever-afters with a hint of suspense by night. I live in Augusta, Maine with the man who is the inspiration behind all my heroes, my husband, Duane. Our cat, Lexi, graciously shares her home with us.
My infatuation with words began at an early age. Books—from those first fondly remembered Grimm’s Fairy Tales and Nancy Drew Mysteries, to the classics—have touched my life in so many ways. My passion for the written word sparked the desire to pen stories that would impact lives in the same way others works have enriched mine. That spark ignited the dream that I am now pursuing.
I hope the tales I spin take my readers on extraordinary journeys filled with laughter and love.
Who is your favorite author?
This is such a tough question. I adore Nora Roberts, of course! But there are so many other talented authors whose books have made an impact on me…Olivia Gates, Jennifer Hayward, Kat Cantrell, and Helen Bianchin, just to name a few. Recently I’ve delved into the works of other Kindle Scout authors, and I’ve discovered some amazing voices! I’m loving Steve Gannon, Fiona Quinn, and Joseph Souza’s writing styles.
Do you listen to music while you write?
Although I love music, I find I write better either surrounded by silence in my little writing nook at home, or tucked in a corner at our local Barnes & Noble café amidst happy chatter. The bonus of working at Barnes & Noble is that it gives me an excuse to indulge in one of their decadent desserts.
What do you do to relax?
Bubble baths are the best way to relax, in my humble opinion, especially when they’re complemented by chocolate and a great romance novel. I also love to unwind with a long hike or a short jog, a scenic cycling trip, or spending time digging in my flower gardens.

Covert protection agent Lauren Reynolds knows, firsthand, that handsome billionaire Rafe Dimitriou is the kind of man who gives love a bad name. Assigned to guard him without his knowledge, she vows to keep him safe without succumbing to the chemistry sizzling between them. If Rafe learns the real reason she’s agreed to his marriage ultimatum, both his life and her heart will be in jeopardy. “The Billionaire’s Bodyguard Bride” follows these two strong-willed characters, both with hidden agendas, as they overcome the personal demons that stand between them and a lifetime of love. It’s a story of unexpected second chances and a revenge plot gone wrong; of secrets and passion, all laced with a hint of suspense.
While I spent time with Rafe and Lauren, recounting their romance, the other men and women of the Sentinels Agency began clamoring to have their stories told, as well. I left the Mendacci mystery that plays a small part in this book open-ended, and its threads will be woven throughout the next books in the Secret Sentinels series.
