Since childhood, I’ve always been able to amuse myself with the stories whirling round in my head. A simple conversation, a scene from a dream, a random what if—they all have the ability to spark a movie in my mind.
I’m often asked why I chose to write romantic suspense novels. I don’t really know that I chose my genre so much as it chose me: these are the stories swirling around my head. But I guess the genre makes sense; I love love, I love adventure, and I love to laugh. All three of these traits permeate my books.
My passion is and always will be writing fiction with strong female characters who are flawed, relatable and very human. The stories and settings are varied but always intertwine, reminding us of the important truth that our lives are all connected in some fashion. We are more alike than we realize.
When I write, I share a piece of who I am. There’s something of my pain and my victories in each page. (Have fun guessing what’s true and what’s not!) I hope to take readers on a journey with me. Nothing makes me happier than someone writing to say my characters felt like old friends – or that they laughed, cried, yelled or cheered with me along the way.
I also believe life is more than the act of taking up air. We all have something we’re good at, something we’re meant to be doing to make this world a better place. So I’m incredibly grateful to have a publisher like Booktrope who helps me use something I love to make a difference in a cause I care deeply about, fighting modern-day slavery. In addition to the work I do to raise awareness of trafficking, I donate a portion of my royalties to organizations that fight human trafficking in one way or another.
You can keep track of my donations on my Crowdrise page.
One of the many things I love about Booktrope is their mantra: Freedom of the Book. Because of their belief that good books should be available to readers, they periodically run promotions with free ebooks and always strive to keep the prices on all books reasonable. Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter to hear about the latest book promotions and to get the heads up when there is a free ebook up for grabs!
