 ABOUT ME

This is the best job in the world. I love writing romance, especially erotic romance. And I mean real romance:

  - two people
  - an adventure, a conflict
  - a Happily Ever After

A cute meet, some sex scenes, maybe a gun battle or a sword fight, then the kiss. Maybe some think that writing romance is easy. It's
not. It's hard work. Creating
two people who eventually become physically, emotionally, and intellectually attracted to each other is the most challenging thing I have ever done. Two flawed human beings like
all of us - two people who find each other and somehow know that they belong together. The road may not be in a straight line, but, in the end, they make it to each other's arms - and bed.

Sensual fantasies have always been floating around in my mind. Now I'm writing them. Joining Romance Writers of America introduced me to
other romance writers and helped hone the craft of sensual
romance that has become my passion and niche in life. I love the creative process and am constantly, madly writing and revising the "next great novel."

Creativity in romance authors isn't usually limited to writing. My interests include building and
decorating doll houses and miniature room boxes, as well as designing silk flower arrangements. Next up?  Mosaics...

I live in Chicago with my loving, supportive husband.

Lost and Found

Ellora's Cave
Romantica® Erotic Contemporary Romance Novel (M/F)
e-book - 47,500 words - $5.95

On leave after eight years of deployments to the Middle East, Marc Rahn returns to his hometown, Birchwood Falls. At 18, right before graduating high school, his parents were killed in a car wreck. All he wanted to do was escape from his pain, so he joined the Marines. Suspicions about his parents' deaths have come to a head, and he's determined to find out how and why they died. He doesn't believe his dad was driving drunk and ran off the road.

Phoebe Barnes is a young, beautiful jazz singer whose goal in life is to make it in the big time. She was abandoned as an infant, spent several years in foster homes, and was finally adopted by a loving couple. Those years in foster care kept her hungry for attention and fame that the singing and dancing
lessons
from her new parents couldn't completely cure.

Marc's on a mission to find out the truth about his folks' deaths before his leave is over. Phoebe has no intention of giving up her desire for fame in New York or LA. Will they be able to fight their attraction for each other.

Winning Violetta

Erotic Faery Tale (M/F)
e-book - 26,580 words - $4.99

Rose and Hyacinth—how can two such well meaning, but hapless faery god sisters meddle in one princess’s life without causing complete chaos?

                  
King Eric promised Princess Violetta she would choose her own husband, then breaks that promise. He offers her hand in marriage to the winner of the joust in return for the knight’s support in war against his enemy. Chafing at this, Violetta, an expert with bow and arrow, accidentally shoots one of the competitors. She can’t believe the effeminate knight is also the
 
most handsome man she’s ever seen. Knowing she shouldn’t, she still surrenders to his seduction, hungering for his kisses and caresses. 

Prince Colin, on a spy mission, disguises himself as an outrageous fop. The last thing he expects to find is the beautiful, passionate princess. He treads a fine line fighting attraction to her and loyalty to his father. Then his mission turns from spy to love, and he must reveal his true identity risking a trip to the dungeon.
           

Will Colin’s honesty destroy their future? Will Violetta let go of her feelings of anger and betrayal? Two faery god sisters certainly hope so.
