Even in this high-tech world of fast living,
each of us has a place of escape. My
place is a quiet bayou harbor. The mirror
slick surface of the black water and the
swaying marsh grasses take me from
season to season, not with changing colors,
but with the wildlife it supports. Graceful
snowy white egrets, and crash-diving
pelicans live alongside of alligators, blue
crabs, and playful otters. Thousands of minnows
bring the water to life in the spring, and
mullet jump across the water in summer and
fall. Most of my stories are set along the
beaches, islands, and waterways of the
Gulf Coast. Ironically my first novel
was set in the beautiful mountains of West
Virginia. Even so, my heroine found her escape
- and her love - in a beautiful snow-covered
setting. If you can't physically get away,
you'll pick up a book - one of my romances,
of course - and let yourself escape into
a world where your problems are set aside
for a few hours and love always

My newest Montlake Romance Windswept is available through Amazon (Paperback and
En route to marry the fiancé handpicked by her father, Virginia Ames gets shipwrecked off the coast of the beautiful Florida Keys. Her rescuer, the dashing Captain Slader, is a wrecker who specializes in salvaging cargo from sunken vessels. As a native New Englander, Virginia grew up in wealth but felt most comfortable on the docks, among the ships. This special connection to the sea is one of the few things the privileged heiress and the rugged captain share. But mixed with the captain’s handsome looks, could this passion be enough to drive Virginia’s marriage plans off course?
Captain John Slader is no stranger to the winds of change himself. He’d once lost the thing he held most dear: his family. But now that those same winds have sent him the lovely Virginia, will he risk his heart
yet again? Virginia’s fiancé, an up-and-coming politician, may be able to offer her a world of wealth and comfort—but could he cherish her as John would, with a love as boundless
as the ocean itself?
