About Me

Author photo - resizedI’m a contemporary romance author.

Not descriptive enough? Yeah, I figured as much.

To be honest, I can’t pinpoint the year when I read my first romance novel, but I know I had a stash of Harlequin romances during my middle school years. And I remember hiding said romances behind the covers of my Menudo magazines (if you’re not familiar with the boy band Menudo, picture young Ricky Martin in spandex—lots of spandex).

Neither college nor law school could deter me from reading romances, and I’m certain my voracious reading negatively affected how much I absorbed from my classes. In fact, for years, I thought the phrase “talk softly and carry a big stick” was dating advice. Ahem.

In my former life, I practiced law in the nation’s capital. Now that I no longer brave the treacherous commute to D.C., I have ample time to hone my craft and plot stories about smart women and the complicated men who love them. Okay, I’ll be real here: I wear PJs all day and watch more reality television than a network television censor—all in the name of research, of course.
