I love writing stories with a twist. With a strong romance, my books have elements of mystery, time travel and the paranormal. 

A SUITABLE FATHER has been called a tale of betrayal, deceit and the triumph of love.

JOURNEY'S END whisks the reader from the present, to the past, to the future as a doctor from modern England finds love and happiness with a maverick time traveler. This story  received four stars from Romantic Times. 

In BELOVED STRANGER, ghostly voices from the past help a modern hero and heroine solve an ancient murder and heal their own wounds. 

For a chilling ride from Africa to the west coast of Canada, try DANCING WITH THE DEVIL... an EPPIE 2003 finalist, a nominee for A Bloody Dagger Award, second in the Lories best of romantic suspense.
