Author Bio

     Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, I relocated to South Florida, a sultry paradise I instantly fell in love with. Unlike most authors, I didn’t know I was destined to write. In fact, I worked in banking for many years, but deep down knew that it wasn’t my dream job. At the young age of thirty-five, my sister died of an illness. I realized the same thing could happen to me. There are no guarantees. I couldn’t waste another moment doing something I didn’t love. Writing was one of my greatest joys when I was growing up. While still working at the bank, I decided to enroll in an intensive course where I learned everything I could about the craft. It didn’t take long before I left the bank to pursue a writing career.

     Now living in coastal North Carolina, I’m married, have two children and a super cute Dachshund I can't get enough of. I write contemporary romance and I'm published with Kensington Publishing and Lyrical Press. I feel truly blessed to be able to share my stories. I only wish I could have shared them with my sister.
