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, but 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’m launching a new Florida-set romantic suspense series for Sourcebooks, and can’t wait to introduce you to the Tanners—a family of tough Florida law enforcement officers. Book 1, BEYOND RISK, is due out in February 2019 and now available for pre-order on Amazon.
Publisher’s Weekly called BEYOND RISK, “…charming, exciting, and thoughtful… the strong sense of place and thrilling action make this worth picking up.”
I also had a blast writing the SAFE HARBOR books, a Florida-set romantic suspense series featuring three foster sisters. Book 1, TANGLED LIES, introduces boat captain Sasha and book 2, HIDDEN THREAT tells environmentalist sister Eve’s story. Mysterious and shadowy sister Cat’s story, DEADLY MELODY, wraps up this fun, heart-pounding series. I’d love to hear what you think of the Martinelli sisters!
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 supporting organizations that are making a difference in this world. One of my favorites is Lift the Lid. One of their projects is the School in a Cart, which helps street children in Manila get an education. Please click here for several other groups who are doing great work.
