Welcome. Thank you for visiting my website and sharing in my writing journey.

I write heartwarming, small-town contemporary romance. Stories about finding home, family and happily ever after–and finding yourself too. 

My first book, THE COTTAGE AT FIREFLY LAKE, was published on January 31, 2017 by Hachette Book Group USA, Grand Central Publishing, Forever. It’s part of a three-book series and will be followed by SUMMER ON FIREFLY LAKE (July 25, 2017) and BACK HOME AT FIREFLY LAKE (December 2017). 

I’m a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA®) and the Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA). I’m also an RWA® Golden Heart® finalist 2015 in Contemporary Romance.

My family includes my husband, Tech Guy, and our daughter, English Rose. After many years in England, I live in a small town in eastern Ontario, Canada where I spent many happy childhood summers.
