Thank you for visiting my website!
I’ve been a storyteller most of my life. Growing up in Los Angeles and being involved in the entertainment industry, I started out writing screenplays. But the medium frustrated me, so I tried to shake things up with a creative exercise. To my tremendous surprise, a 650-page love story poured out of me. It may have been awful and ridiculously long (though, secretly, I still love it!), but it was the most fun I’d had writing in ages. And so I’d found my true voice as a writer. Since then, I’ve written dozens of contemporary romances, from YA to New Adult to single title. What does age matter when we’re talking about finding the loves of our lives?!
I’ve got exciting news! The second book in The Bad Boyfriend series—THE HEARTLESS BOYFRIEND—is ready for you!
Will Bowie is supposed to be training for the Olympics, but the toddler unexpectedly dropped into his life isn’t interested in his schedules. Still, he’ll make it work. He has to. There’s no way he’ll bail on the little girl—not after his own mom ditched him twenty years ago. He’s pretty sure he’s got things under control…
…until a sexy chef lands on his doorstep and offers a temptation he can’t resist.
Hours after losing her restaurant, chef Delilah Lua flies across the country to participate in a renowned cooking competition in the breathtaking Tetons. Winning would resurrect the dream that’s been stolen from her. If—no, when—she wins, she’ll go home with the capital to open her own place and enough fame to do it with flair. Her roommate, though, is a delicious surprise she hadn’t anticipated…
…but she’s not sure how to have her cake and eat it, too.
Despite the undeniable sparks in the kitchen, Will’s not about to give his heart to another woman who’s leaving, and Delilah must decide if the delectable future she could cook up with Will is worth more than her lifelong dream.
I’m loving The Bad Boyfriend series. It’s about four brawny mountain-men brothers who grew up wild in the Tetons with a super competitive dad and an eccentric uncle (in other words: no maternal hand!). These elite athletes have ZERO understanding of romantic relationships. But, trust me, they will all meet their matches, and when they do these guys will fall HARD. I am loving these stories!! You can meet all the guys and get a glimpse into their world on my Pinterest page.
