One unforgettable kiss etched in her memory…she begins to question her vow to never love again. Eric is a true gent and determined to win Meghan’s love. Just as she begins to…her ex is released on early parole and has had time to develop an obsession…
What kind of research do you do for your books?
Most of my writing involves suspense and crime so my research can be a little frightening at times. My research comes from reading, contacts within the police force and watching tv crime. I’m a Criminal Minds addict and many more… For a contemporary romance…I’m a hopeless romantic and avid reader of all genres of romance. I love to escape into a great book to be taken away on a journey that makes me feel like I’m there and I know the characters. And of course, a HEA! I want to smile at the end of a read. I want my readers too as well.

What process do you use to pick your character’s names?

This is always fun! Sometimes it can take a while because the name has to be the right fit for the character’s personality. I google anything and everything from baby names…sexy names…strong names…one can google anything these days! I love to read articles involving names and their meanings…that helps! Sometimes I hear a name too that I just love or someone I’ve met that resembles a character.

Are your characters based on anyone you know?
One character in Unforgettable Kiss – Leila   She is a dear friend and when I was talking to her about the character and her personality…the way she moved around in high heels so gracefully…I looked at her and said…I just described you! So be it. Leila is in Unforgettable Kiss. 

Do you use visual aid to better describe people or places? (pictures out of magazines, online, or people you know in real life).
Love using pics online and offline…Love to watch people (no, I’m not a stalker…just a writer lol) Love using teasers and book trailers to help my readers visualize the characters and settings.

Who reads your drafts/WIP before it’s published?
A critique partner and a few other authors

Do your characters sometimes take over and write the book themselves? Who?
They do! I’m a write-by-my-seat writer…I usually have a few jot notes here and there…sticky notes everywhere…notes on my phone but I love to unravel the story as I write. I’m a reader….keeps me interested lol

What is your favorite book and author? 
My fav author is Danielle Steele and I can’t pick just one.

What do you prefer: ebook or print? Why?
Love my Kindle but love having a print to read and store on my treasured shelf…can I be greedy and say both lol

What did you do once a publisher sent you your first Acceptance Letter?
Actually nothing lol…a funny story…my first acceptance letter came on April 1st…yep April Fool’s Day. I was excited and worried at the same time. I wasn’t sure what to do. Then 2 days later I received an email asking if I received the offer…well then the happy dance began and still smiling :)

What’s your most bizarre life experience?
Getting my first writing contract on April Fools Day lol. But it’s been the best thing to happen besides my kids :)

Unforgettable Kiss


One kiss leaves Meghan questioning her decision to never love again.
Meghan Eden swore she would never love again. The tragic death of her son, at the hands of her husband, destroyed her emotionally. She believed her successful Spa would fulfill her life until a business seminar takes her to a golf resort in Arizona. Meghan’s love of golf gets her paired up with a man she doesn’t know. The rest of the world does. Eric Nolan is the most sought after actor in Hollywood and the most eligible bachelor in the hearts of many women. Eric draws out hidden desires Meghan never imagined and leaves an unforgettable kiss etched in her memory. One kiss leaves her questioning her decision to never love again. An emotional struggle to love again cannot stop the passion that unravels. But perhaps Meghan’s ex can. Released on early parole without her knowledge and he’s had the time to develop an obsession. Eric races to save her. He reaches the door, only to hear the gun shot.

Excerpt from Unforgettable Kiss

She placed her hand on his chest, the tempo of his pulse increased. She could feel herself tremble, getting weaker by the moment. Reality faded and paradise set in. He pulled her hips in closer to his. The passion she felt could defy analysis. Meghan told herself to respond not react. He pushed her shoulders against the wall, aggressive yet gentle with an incredible rhythm. His hips never left hers in the sudden movement. An in sensational appetite stirred within her.
