I've always been a hopeful romantic and completely enamored with romance novels, especially ones involving a protective, rebellious Hero fighting the good fight. I started writing my first story when my daughter was born. I remember holding her new little body in my arms, promising her that if she worked hard, she could achieve anything. I realized how hollow my promise sounded when I had not accomplished my own dream of becoming an author. And so my journey began. I started to write my first book so that I could look my daughter in the eye when I encouraged her to strive. And now, nearly ten years later, I'm humbled to be able to say that hundreds of thousands of people have read my books. With gratitude, I wish you happy reading!
