I have a deep love for writing medieval romance and romantic adventure. So you will find that most of my books take place in the middle ages or, if contemporary or fantasy, have medieval characters. I started writing when I found a romance novel on the side of the road soaked from an earlier rain. I took it home, nursed it back to health, read it, and thought "I can do that". It was a long learning process, but my "characters" never gave up on me. :).

DRAEGON'S LAIR 2009 Eppie Award & Golden Wings Award
Alys de Monceux runs from her betrothed, the cruel and abusive Bastion of Worthingshire. She had run from him before and was flogged in her efforts. This time she cannot fail. This time there is more at stake than her own life. Death would be preferable than returning to the man she fears.
Draegon of Greystone lives a reclusive life. Beneath hood and helm, he hides a face he is sure others will fear. Only his good friend, Diminimis, has seen him without cover. Draegon is content in his world of shadows, or so he believes, until he rescues a wounded Alys from a band of pursuers. Soon he realizes the truth of living in hell--his hell--as he watches others from afar, never interacting. Suddenly he yearns for a love he is unworthy of. He knows this, but how can he convince her of his unworthiness? This spirited and persistent woman who believes him to be more than what he is.
Bastion of Worthingshire wants Alys back at any cost and he will kill anyone who gets in his way. When he tracks her to Greystone, however, he discovers more than his runaway betrothed--and the myth that has long hung over him finally comes to light. A light he must extinguish.
Rachael Cicconi, a flutist with the local symphony, is raising her five-year-old son, Timmy, alone after her verbally abusive boyfriend, Timmy's father, left them without a word and without support. Rachael has made some mistakes, but now her only desire is to take care of Timmy the best that she can. Lately, however, Timmy has been waking from nightmares about a killer knight. Rachael believes it may be a combination of his favorite story, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and early memories of his father's abusive nature that trigger these dreams. Though she would like to meet someone and give Timmy the father he deserves, she's not sure she can ever trust again.

The only light in Michel's life now is Rachael, the woman he had protected from a pair of attackers. After hearing of Timmy's nightmares, Michel is convinced that Rachael's son holds the key to finding and stopping Ruford. Timmy, Michel discovers, is a seer. Michel just needs to find what it is that triggers the boy's dreams--or rather, prophecies. His presence, however, has placed Rachael and Timmy in danger. Now he must protect his new-found family as the hunter becomes the hunted.
