I began writing creatively in my teens and became fond of the romance genre after receiving a romance novel as a gift for Christmas.  I wrote my first full-length novel following a devastating that landed me on my back for the last semester at university.  It was a terrible book, but I finished it.
Now, nearly twenty years later, I have many published stories to my name.  I live in Virginia Beach with my daughter and a loveable black lab that curls at my feet every time I sit at the computer.
I’m not using much from my two degrees to work as a senior paralegal for a large law firm in Norfolk, VA.  Writing, however, has become my dream for a life filled with all my passions - love, writing, and chocolate.
