Ever the storyteller, my love of romance books started in my grandmother's home where I found a huge box of old YA novels. I devoured them within weeks. I adored the stories featuring bell bottoms, feathered hair, and sweet kisses.

When I'm not crafting stories, I love to bake, watch terrible reality tv, and cruise open houses for design ideas. I live in Oakland with my sweet mid-western husband, precocious kid, and two horribly spoiled rescue dogs.
