About The Author:


Even though some people think I'm a man because of my pen name, I'm not. I'm female, but try to be tough. LOL!

I live in Wisconsin, with a husband, three kids over 18, and a few pets. Because my life is kind of boring, I live vicariously through my characters.

Wouldn't it be nice to go back in time and relive the wonder of new love and romance? My husband doesn't know the meaning of romance, so I'm trying to teach him what women like. I firmly believe men could have whatever they wanted if they only read romances and took notes. I also think every man should take a Romance 101 class, filled with wonderful romance novels. Their wife or girlfriend would have to rate them at the end of the class.

Wouldn't the world be a nicer place if that were true?
