I write smart, fun, relatable women’s fiction–currently contemporary. My style has been described in these ways:
- Plots that pull you into the characters’ lives
- A sensitive and deft writer . . . with a powerful relationship with language
- Held my attention from beginning to end
- A little bit of something for everyone: romance, humor, tension, and mystery
- Real characters with real problems
- Gripped me from the opening sentence
- You’ll shed a tear and laugh out loud
