Why Romance?

Why do I write romance? I like love, romance, and a happy ending, of course. But my books are about more than just the romance between two people. They are about love. The love that we have for our selves, pets, family, home, and community.

My stories take place in Echo Village, Vermont. A small town that harbors love, intrigue, romance, joy, and adventure around every turn. Book 2 of the Echo Village Series is in the works!

I have always found inspiration in Vermont. From the green mountains in Summer to the beautifully patterned patchwork of color in the Fall, to the snow capped ski slopes of Winter. Each season brings new beauty, new challenges, and new adventures. My new book, ‘Emma’s Heart’ is available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2ScyfEk

Other authors are also an inspiration. When I get a chance to binge read books, Debbie Macomber is one of my go-to’s. She builds communities with her characters like I do. If you have time, you may want to check out two of her newer releases:

‘Thursdays at Eight’


‘Alaskan Holiday”


Happy Reading!
