At the age of fifteen an upperclassman slipped me my first romance novel. I became immediately engrossed in the romance genre. Years later when I discovered there were romance novels written by African-American women with characters that looked like me, I nearly lost my mind! Searching my local bookstores for my favorite authors became an enjoyable pastime. Today I have an extensive library of romance novels that’s growing out of control!
My love for the genre and a need to find a place of escape is what encouraged me to write my first novel, A Special Summer, in 2008, under a pen name. After receiving positive feedback from readers eager to know what was going to happen next with the characters, I was inspired to write the sequel, When Love Comes Around, and before I knew it, the Love Conquers All Series was born. From this series Second Chance at Love was nominated for an Emma Award for E-book of the Year.
Currently, I’m working on creating new stories with fascinating characters that will make readers want to fall in love.
Although reading and writing are near and dear to my heart, being a wife, mother, sister, friend, and nurse practitioner is what makes me the happiest.
