Dear Reader,

Welcome to my web site! What I write is often dark, dangerous...and sometimes very spicy.

Whether I'm writing about a contemporary hero--or heroine--who happens to be a federal agent or a sexy cowboy from the Old West, I hope you'll find a story you love. Love and danger go hand in hand in my work, so be prepared for some highly charged love scenes. No matter which genre, a dose of family drama often enriches the story.

And if you're interested in the up-and-down life of a writer, you might want to follow me on me on Facebook or Twitter. My blog is "resting" while I forge ahead on my current work in progress.
