Ahoy and Welcome!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll come back often and sign up for my newsletter (form below), so you’ll never miss the latest book news and giveaway opportunities.

Like most of you, I wear many hats. Besides being a romantic suspense author, I’m also a USCG-licensed boat captain and an advocate for women and children in developing countries. I’m a wife, mom, traveler, nature lover, believer, and hit-or-miss fisherman. (Hubby says we’re great at fishing; lousy at catching.)

I’ve wanted to write books since I penned an epic story about my hamster in the third grade. I’m the kid whose mother took my books away on vacation so I would actually spend time with my family.

I’ve had a blast writing the SAFE HARBOR books, a Florida-set romantic suspense series featuring three foster sisters. Book 1, TANGLED LIES, introduced boat captain Sasha and was published by Waterfall Press in May 2016. HIDDEN THREAT tells sister Eve’s story and released in May of 2017. We finally learn Cat’s story in DEADLY MELODY, which releases in May 2018 and is now available for pre-order. I’d love to hear what you think of the Martinelli sisters!

I’m also working on a new romantic suspense series for Sourcebooks, and can’t wait to introduce you to the Tanners—a family of tough Florida law enforcement officers. The first book is due out in February 2019. (Sign up for my newsletter so you’ll always know what’s next.)

When I’m not writing, I work for our local school board and get to take 5th graders out on the beautiful Silver River here in Central Florida. What a treat to show some of them their very first alligator.

I’m also passionate about Lift the Lid and their support of the School in a Cart, which helps street children in Manila get an education. Please click here for more info.

I also wholeheartedly support the work of The Blessing Basket. They help artisans in developing countries break the poverty cycle and provide for their families. Find out more here, or shop for unique, handwoven gifts in my Blessing Basket shop.
