I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing something or the other and finished my first “novel” at the age of eight (five pages, which my mother still has and threatens to sell to the National Enquirer when I make the NYT bestseller list). I have the usual collection of adolescent bad poetry and purple prose, much of which has thankfully disappeared — though I recently unearthed the first romance novel I completed. :: shudders ::
What I Write
These days, I’m focused on a contemporary romance series set in the fictional town of Henry’s Mills, close enough to New York and Boston to enjoy their amenities — but far enough away that urbanites wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle can deem it “rural.” The residents have cannily embraced this designation for tourism purposes.
The first book is in editing, while the second was drafted during NaNoWriMo 2015. With luck, both will be published in 2016. Of course, that’s not to say something shiny and new won’t come along to catch my attention at any moment…
What You'll Find Here
At this point, I’m sharing my thoughts, knitting projects, general geekiness, and whatever else might fall out of my brain. Current media obsessions are The Flash, Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Blindspot, and comics in general and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in particular.

Funny, I keep telling my characters that. At this point, they’re not particularly interested in listening. But they’re in the middle of the book, so they do not know the pain which lies ahead of them. My hero, especially. He has no understanding how out of his depth he is. Naturally this is going to cause considerable pain, especially to the heroine, who is falling for him despite her logical instints that tell her otherwise. ::cackles evilly::
