A welcome note

Welcome to my website! I’m so glad you came to visit.

Since the mid-1990’s, I’ve published eighteen contemporary and historical romances, most of which are now available as reasonably priced ebooks. Each and every book has been a labor of love, and I’m proud to say they’ve won every major romance industry award.

An RT reviewer once likened my historicals to oil paintings because of their richness and complexity; most are romantic suspense. (If you liked Ken Follet’s Pillars of the Earth, you’ll love my medievals.) My contemporaries tend to be lighter and infused with wit. Every love story I’ve ever penned has been deeply emotional, with a high level of sensuality. If you love a heart-pounding love scene, look no further.

I enjoy communicating with my readers through social networking, so be sure to check out my Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts. And if you’d like to learn about new releases, bargain books, and freebies, don’t forget to join my mailing list.
