I grew up in Iowa, and have traveled extensively only to come back to the Midwest to live. In 2003 I read my first romantic suspense novel and decided I'd found my genre. But there was a problem: the books I read all featured young heroines, interested in starting a family and having babies. So I started writing romantic suspense about older women who are interested in men and sex and having a good relationship (which may or may not include a marriage).
I hope you enjoy reading about them as much as I enjoy writing about them.
Hi there! Waving to you from Minnesota! Hope you enjoy my author page and hope you'll check out some of my books.
I write in two genres: mystery-suspense is one. I write "sexy-cozy mysteries" in which a heroine gets embroiled in a mystery and there's a touch of romance thrown in. I also write a variation of that which are my romantic suspense books.
I also write paranormal romances. I have a series with Cerridwen. It's called The History Patrol and it's a time travel/reincarnation/paranormal series (3 books: Forgiveness, Endurance, and Temperance). And I have a series with The Wild Rose Press which started with Human Touch. Two more books will be released next year.
All of my books feature older heroes and heroines (40s and 50s). Check it out!
