About Me

I’m a romance writer who believes in happily ever after and loves exploring the darker side of the South. I’m also a busy mom, wife, employee, and author for Harlequin Desire, so I understand life’s complications and the struggle to keep dreams alive in the midst of chaos. I hope you’ll join me as I explore the many experiences of my own journey through the valley of long hours, dirty dishes, demanding characters, and the ticking clock.
