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

I write contemporary romance and uplifting women’s fiction. Stories about women finding home, family and happy endings–and finding themselves too. 

My first book, THE COTTAGE AT FIREFLY LAKE, was published in January 2017 by Hachette Book Group USA, Grand Central Publishing, Forever. It’s part of a trilogy including 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®), the Romantic Novelists’ Association (RNA) and Women’s Fiction Writer’s Association (WFWA). I’m also an RWA® Golden Heart® finalist 2015 in Contemporary Romance, and a finalist for the RNA Joan Hessayon Award 2017. 

My family includes my husband, Tech Guy, our daughter, English Rose, and four-legged Floppy Ears, a lovable Walker Hound-Beagle mix. 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 (where I post fortnightly) 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.
