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, releases on January 31, 2017 from Hachette Book Group USA, Grand Central Publishing, Forever. 

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.

Find out more about me under ‘Meet Jen‘, come say hi on my blog or visit my ‘Books‘ and ‘Photo Gallery‘ pages for information about my writing and the places (and sometimes furry friends!) that inspire me.

I’d be pleased to hear from you at my contact page.
