About Me

Signing my books at RT convention

I never thought that hazardous waste analysis would lead me to writing novels! When my Ph.D. and work in chemistry landed me a few international contracts to refurbish laboratories, I traveled to more than sixty countries on business or vacation.

To relax from my hectic schedule, I avidly read romance novels and mentally plotted my own books. Eventually I left a successful scientific career to share with readers the many stories brewing in my head.

Now I live in sunny Florida, but I can’t stay long in one place and continue to travel often. I’m lucky to be married to a man who likes traveling even more than I do. So we pack our laptop, camera and Kindle eReader, and a few more items and clothes and go.

My muse hits me with new ideas when I look at the ocean or walk on a sandy beach, and I like to set my stories in the fascinating places I visited:

In exotic Belarus, HER RUSSIAN HERO (printed version TO LOVE A HERO), a romance with intrigue and suspense, and

AN UNUSUAL CHRISTMAS (printed version Rx IN RUSSIAN), an emotional medical romance;

In historical France, RIGHT NAME, WRONG MAN, a funny contemporary romance, and HER FRENCH COUNT (printed version FRENCH PERIL), a romantic suspense;

In the islands of Greece, HER GREEK TYCOON, a humorous comedy novel;

In Ancient Egypt and the mysterious Islands of Seychelles, OSIRIS’ MISSING PART, a paranormal romance.

In addition to books set in Washington, DC., BABIES IN THE BARGAIN,                              in Cincinnati, OH., NO MORE LIES, (printed version RX FOR TRUST)                                   NEIGHBORS AND MORE in sunny Florida.
