Historical Romance is Timeless
A Bit About Me
As a lover of human nature, I want to see people fall into healthy, loving relationships and become better people. The rippling effects of a loving home can be felt for generations and impacts not only the family, but the community as a whole. If we wish to improve our world, we must start by falling in love and allowing love's transformative power to shape us. I create heroines who are smart, funny, and flawed; my heroes are admirable, intelligent, and imperfect. Writing about two individuals whose strengths and weaknesses align is actually the ancient art of match-making. It takes wisdom, patience, and a lot of chutzpah. Nothing happens by accident, including love pairings.
True love stories never have endings.
- Richard Bach
