I write contemporary romance novels. So far, I’ve written two novels:

  • Take Me Home (revising):

After her perfect airman husband divorces her and marries her friend, Kirsty Carter’s hopes for happily ever after go up in flames like a cake in her temperamental oven. She wants to be Supermom to her two young daughters, but it’s a struggle when she’s stuck in a city she despises and with a custody agreement that forces her to see her smug ex and his new wife every week. And with her home baking business faltering, Kirsty can’t even afford a decent cup of coffee, let alone wine to take the edge off.

Sapphire-eyed restaurateur Eric Duncan has returned to the hometown he escaped fifteen years ago to open the newest location of his successful chain. When Kirsty meets Eric at an event, she spears his heart—and his foot with her borrowed stiletto heels. Before she knows it, Kirsty’s own heart is fighting with her responsible mind over whether a workaholic who lives out of a suitcase is the best choice for a mother who’s been burned once before by love. And is her heart still hers to give away?

In Dayton, Ohio, a city that’s smaller than it seems, two very different people must find their way past their pasts to find love—and a home—together.

  • Distracted (complete):

Software project manager Alicia and her nephew Noah have only each other after a series of tragic losses. Alicia’s managing just fine, thanks to her job—how else could she afford Noah’s ADHD medication?—until that job is threatened by a disruptive new programmer on her team.

Brilliant programmer Jackson founded his company ten years ago but has since lost interest. His passion comes racing back when he walks into the Dayton office of his company and meets Alicia. Too bad that, in his latest impulse-control failure, he introduces himself as Jay and joins the team as the new programmer. Now he’s falling for Alicia and becoming a father figure to Noah, and their relationship is built on a lie.

Alicia, Jackson, and their team of misfit programmers must meet an impossible deadline. Alicia and Jackson go from adversaries to lovers. And what happens during the user conference in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas when their secrets are revealed.
