Romance and Fantasy for the discerning reader...

I'm Canadian born and bred, and I've been writing for as long as I can remember. My first published work came back in 1984 in a fan fiction zine, and from there I spent almost twenty years learning and honing my presentation of a story. It was a great training ground! My life has had several on-going love affairs that shape much of what I write, the American West, Victorian England, cowboys, a passion for pirates, Greek Gods, and Ancient Egypt. The other endless love affair in my life is Italia and all its magic, beauty, and dazzling culture. That passion spills into all aspects of my life.

The coming year will bring change, as I leave behind a lot of the genres I’ve written in over past years. There’s a new focus, and it begins with my first novel in a long time, a beautiful mainstream romance set in Italy. After that, the work begins on ALL the new books in the works... it will be an exciting time, and I thank you all for sharing the journey, and continuing to support me through the changes and diversity.

Enroute home to Gold Ridge, Colorado after their honeymoon, David and Hannah Logan are attacked by a pair of bandits who plunge them back into a past they shared, but never truly came to terms with together... It’s been almost a year since the nightmare of violence and assault tore Hannah from David’s side and left him bereft and angry. When she returned to him, determined to rebuild what they’d lost, the light of love had come with her. Now, a new torment threatens to destroy everything, and Hannah’s biggest enemy might just be David himself…

World Romance Writers: Escape to Africa. My story is set in Casablanca and harks back to the beloved movie in tone...

Dangerous Liasion: In late 1942, during the days leading up to Operation Torch, Morocco struggles to find peaceful existence. Unknown to everyone Hitler's first major defeat is nearing, but there is still work to be done before the historic battles destined to end the war. In Casablanca, the French Resistance is crumbling, agents being caught in traps and rounded up by the Prefect of Police, on the orders of the occupying Germans. One of France’s intelligence operatives is given information vital to the alliance, and it’s now up to her to get the microfilm to someone who can see it gets to Allied HQ. The lovely Isabeau Renault has kept her cover in place for over a year in Casablanca, and probably saved countless lives because of her activities, but with the resistance being choked by the Nazi stranglehold, will she be able to get the most important intelligence she’s ever held safely out of Casablanca, or will she die trying? It all hinges now on the manager of a rival café, an American named Cade Maddox, a man with a personal interest in Isabeau, and an uncomfortably close relationship with the police captain and several German officers.
