I may be an accidental Midwest girl, but my heart remains in the South. For ten years, I lived in Little Rock and then the Nashville area and my biggest regret was not acquiring a true southern accent before I left. 

My author’s shelf contains a wide variety of genres, but at the core of every one of my novels is the characters. I try to create characters that are so real you feel like you know them personally. I’ve been known to say that “I keep my sanity by creating characters to talk to and worlds to live in.”

My Published Works include: The Rose Gardner Mystery series (Romantic Mystery), The Curse Keepers series (Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance), The Chosen series (Urban Fantasy), On the Otherside series (YA Sci Fi/Romance), and The Off the Subject series (NA Contemporary Romance.)
