I’ve always loved books and telling stories. One of my earliest memories is my mom reading Charlotte’s Web to me before getting up in the morning, something we would do every day. I graduated quickly to other books including Anne of Green Gables and more, spending almost every day after school at the library while my mom worked. There was never enough romances in those books so I always rewrote the endings with more HEAs (happily-ever-afters), then I found the romance section (and mom thought I was way too young but I snuck in anyway). My aunt gave my Gone With the Wind, and I tore through Jude Deveraux, Judith McNaught and I was hooked. I started writing in college but I didn’t take it up seriously until later.
After several manuscripts and rejections, I finally got published with my sports series, the Knights of Passion, an homage to my first love (and career) athletic training and baseball. I was an athletic trainer in my first iteration of life and adore baseball to this day.
I am now focused mostly on steamy, small-town romances with the man/woman next door, deep emotions, and nosy neighbors who all mean well, along with some meddling critters and an occasional child thrown in for good measure. I love fun stories with strong emotion, sexy times, and books you can keep going back to as if you’re coming home.
Question: Tell me, what is your favorite kind of heroes in your books – strong, dominant alphas or the guy next door? One random commenter will receive one ebook of their choice from my backlist!
