I am a wife and stay at home mom to two wonderful children. My family is my world and one of the reasons I started writing was so I could be home for them more often. I was born and raised in Massachusetts where I still live today with my amazing family.
As a child and young adult I was never a big reader, I never found a genre I enjoyed or a series I could get into, but fell in love with it after my son was born, Since then, I have built up quite the collection of romance novels. As I started to read more and more books and different genres, I started to notice things I really enjoyed in a book and things I didn’t. Realizing what I didn’t enjoy really made me want to write more.
I woke up one morning bored and unhappy with what I was doing in life and since I had an idea in mind for the start of a book, I sat down and went for it. I realized that if there was ever a time for me to do it, it was now, because my hours at work were slow and the kids were off enjoying their friends for summer vacation.
After I finished the first book, I decided that I really enjoyed writing. and I had already had an idea for books two and three, so I kept going. That's how the Learning to Love Series was born. I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I have enjoyed writing them.

Q: What's a typical writing day for you like?
A: A typical writing day for me starts at the gym. After I get the kids off to school, I go straight to the gym so I can clear my head of all other thoughts. I often come up with other ideas for the book while I’m there walking or using the elliptical. Then, once I am home, I sit down at my laptop with my breakfast I and I immediately start writing and will keep going until all my thoughts are down. I will usually take a break about lunch time and that is when I will do my Facebook posting on my author page or in any other book groups I am in. Depending on how much time I have until the kids get home, I will sometimes read what I wrote for the day and do some tweaking or editing. Occasionally if my family's evening schedule allows it, I will even go back to writing if I have more thoughts to put on paper or changes I want to finish making. I guess it is fair to say, for me, the start of my day is pretty routine but from the time the kids get home until bed is always changing.
