I'm a USA Today bestselling author of swashbuckling action-adventure historical romances set in Scotland, England, and the American West, with over a dozen books published in six languages. I've won awards in the Orange Rose, Hearts through History, and Book Buyers Best contests and was a double finalist in the Romance Writers of America RITA Awards. My books appear in several multi-author boxed sets with such esteemed talents as Bella Andre, Marie Force, Tanya Anne Crosby, Lauren Royal, Kathryn Le Veque, Eliza Knight, and Claire Delacroix. Writing from my California home, I love playing medieval matchmaker and transporting readers to a place where the bold heroes have endearing flaws, the women are stronger than they look, the land is lush and untamed, and chivalry is alive and well!
I love to travel, so I tag along as often as possible with my husband (he's the bass player for the classic rock band, America) on his tour bus and with my BFF and sister author, Lauren Royal, on writing retreat cruises! I'm also a big movie buff, love to bicycle on the weekends, like to camp, and enjoy puttering in my garden, growing my own fruits and veggies.
