Average Rating:

For as long as I can remember, I’d go to bed every night and create new characters (I was usually the heroine), new plots and new stories until I fell asleep. Night after night, I would expand on those ‘fantasies’ until the hero and I lived happily ever after. 

It wasn’t until my mid–thirties when the voices started. They still talk, I still listen and write. My biggest fear is that I won’t have enough time to tell all their tales. There are just so many…

All my stories are of a historical setting and laced with paranormal and fantasy elements. I live in Colorado with my children, huskies and kitty cat.

Q: Why do you write?

A: I write to help people escape everyday struggles, and because my characters won't stop talking.


Q: How long have you been writing?

A: I started writing in grade school, and I was bound and determined my characters would have ‘real’ ghosts and goblins, unlike the characters in Scooby Doo.


Q: What is your favorite historical romance?

A: I have three that I take down and read every year.

The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen E Woodiwiss.

Paint the Wind by Cathy Cash Spellman (my son is actually named after the hero).

By Right of Arms by Robyn Carr


Q: Why historical romance?

A: I have a strong interest in history. I believe it has shaped our lives and continues to, to this day.


Q: Will we ever find out what the unfortunate incident was that drove Pierre and Collin from Paris?

A: You find out in book two when Pierre becomes the hero.


Q: Is the closing of establishments that catered to gay men a historical fact?

A: Sex outside marriage was considered a crime and just like today, prostitution was a crime. There were in fact gay brothels and they were referred to as a Molly House. Their crimes were punished more severely for obvious reasons.


Q: You wrote a ManLove novel. Are you a bisexual?

A: No, I was happily married for sixteen years and am now involved in a heterosexual relationship today. I do however have a very dear friend who is a lesbian. I hold absolutely no judgment on same-sex relationships.
