Welcome!

I'm so glad you decided to stop by my website. I never imagined when my first book was published in 2006 that connecting with readers would become my favorite part of writing. I hope you'll take a relaxing breath and a sip of your favorite drink, then spend some time getting to know my books and me. And I'd be pleased if you'd connect with me so I can get to know you as well.
