When did you decide to become an author?


I was always drawn to writing. I found romance in high school. Once I realized there were all these emotional, sexy stories with the guaranteed happy endings, I knew this was what I wanted to do for a living.




How long did it take you to publish?


Twenty-five years. Publishing was going through a major contraction when I started. Self-publishing wasn’t really a thing. I wrote my first manuscript on a rented typewriter!


When I finally sold, I think my family was even more relieved than I was and I don’t think any of them imagined I would have 55 Harlequins twelve years later, but I do! THE BABY HIS SECRETARY CARRIES IS MY 55th!!


What writing advice would you offer to a new author?


Hang in there. Take chances. Make mistakes. You won’t know unless you try.


Also, embrace the joy of writing. The writing is yours and no one can take it away from you. Publishing is a business. It can and will make you doubt yourself, but no amount of rejections can make you stop writing. If you want to write, write.





Tell us about your book...



Gio is your average Italian hero who is sexy and confident and *loves* his grandfather. (His parents are horrendous people.) He runs the family company and is about to offer a promotion to one of his assistants when gets the news his Nonno is on his death bed.


Molly desperately wants to accept the promotion she’s offered. Work with the head of the company? It’s a dream come true, especially because she secretly has a crush on him. The problem? She’s also secretly carrying a surrogate baby!!


Gio can’t figure out why Molly refuses the promotion, but then he *does* figure out she’s pregnant. Surely she wants a father for her unborn baby? The solution is a win-win: he’ll marry her, thereby reassuring his grandfather that he has a wife, and he will take care of Molly, who he thinks is destined to raise her baby alone.


Of course ALL of these secrets spill out all over the pages sooner or later. It’s messy and dramatic and sexy and fun! I hope you enjoy!



The Italian boss’s proposal…
The secretary’s secret!

Faced with a hostile takeover, tycoon Gio must strengthen his claim on the Casella family company with a fake engagement. He’ll never commit to a real one again. Despite his forbidden attraction, his dedicated PA, Molly, is ideal to play his adoring fiancée. The only problem? Molly is pregnant!

Secretly carrying a surrogate baby, Molly can’t reveal the truth of her pregnancy. But knowing Gio’s protecting his legacy, she agrees to the ruse 
temporarily. Until pretend passion becomes red-hot reality! Will innocent Molly walk away from Gio unscathed or forever burned by his irresistible touch…?
