What is your writing Kryptonite?

Time…never feeling as though I have enough of it. I work a full time day job managing a busy furniture store and also write full time, so juggling the two, in between family life, friends, plus five horses, three dogs and two spoiled ragdoll cats, sometimes I wish there were simply more hours in a day.

Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

Not really. Perhaps if I branched out into another genre I might. But since my heart will always be with writing contemporary romance, I’m happy to keep using my name.

Tell us about your book... 

Her Secret Texas Valentine is out now from Harlequin Special Edition. It’s part of The Fortune’s Of Texas continuity and I absolutely loved writing about Jake and Valene. They meet via a dating app, and he seems perfect – handsome and charming, but also a penniless ranch hand. Of course nothing is ever as it seems.



The rugged cowboy lassoed her heart

Will his secret change everything?

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and poor Valene Fortunado is still single. Determined to take matters into her own hands, she signs up for a dating app that inexplicably pairs her with Jake Brockton. The sexy, down-to-earth “ranch hand” quickly makes Val forget what she thought she wanted in a man. But what will she do when she finds out her perfect, “penniless” beau is secretly a millionaire?
