ABOUT ME.

Traveller: if you cannot find the path that leads to your goal, make your own path… step by step.

Hi there and welcome to my website. I never thought I’d ever find myself in the position of having a website in my name, but here we are. Life can be a bit surreal sometimes.

Well this is the “About Me” section so I guess I should tell you something about me. I suppose I can start with the fact that I have loved reading since I learned how and a love of writing followed soon after. Once I started reading romance that was it: I’d found my passion. I would read a book and halfway through I’d find myself drifting off and creating dialogue and scenes for characters (I still do that). I’d basically make up my version of the perfect ending to the story and when the book’s ending didn’t gel with mine I’d be terribly disappointed. After a while I started writing my own stories. I figured the only way I’d get those perfect endings was to write them myself.

I’ve been writing romance since I was thirteen and at fourteen sent this handwritten, completely unprofessional looking query letter off to Mills and Boon/Harlequin telling them that I’d written the best romance ever! Needless to say, nothing came of that. This early rejection didn’t faze me; I kept writing. Mostly for my own pleasure and allowed only a select few friends to read my stuff.

In 2012 I finally took the plunge to self-publish a little story I’d been working on for many, many years. At that point it was called Untitled 3 and I hastily went through the story in search of a title. I found a line that resonated with me: “she was just his temporary and unwanted wife” and then vacillated between “temporary” and “unwanted” but quickly settled on The Unwanted Wife and that was that. Apparently I’m an author now.

Surreal, see?

Other stuff about me: I have two budgies one—Oliver—is the love of my life, the other—Baxter—is a little green tyrant on a power trip. I also have two Chihuahuas: Maia who can be a total meanie at times and Hana, who at three months old loves everything and everybody. I love chocolate, red wine, action movies, the beach, sunny days and rainy days. Is this starting to sound like an online dating profile? It totally is. I’ll stop there.

Please feel free to contact me on this website, on Facebook or Twitter. I’m always happy to hear from you and happy to answer questions or hear your feedback.

Hard to put down. This intense story is heavy on the romance and is nontraditional in many aspects, right down to the South African setting. —RT Book Reviews of A Husband’s Regret, 4 Stars

Best Seller.

THE UNWANTED WIFE

No one had ever looked at her and seen perfection—until now.Delicate, titian-haired Theresa Noble has met her father’s associates in the past, but the gorgeous, Italian-born Sandro De Lucci leaves her speechless. Eighteen months into their marriage, however, Sandro has turned to ice. Desperate to escape a relationship that has proven to be as stubbornly passionate as it is cold and hateful, Theresa summons up the courage to ask for a divorce. But before he’ll grant her request, Sandro demands something from Theresa: a son.
The stalemate sickens her. Never mind that Sandro has yet to introduce Theresa to the large family that means so much to him. Or that Theresa overhears her husband on the phone with a mystery woman. Most damning is that Theresa senses, in Sandro’s treatment of her, the behind-the-scenes machinations of Jackson Noble, her cruel father. From the depths of her anxiety, Theresa must seek an empowering truth about the husband who calls her, with such cold affection, his cara, his beloved.

Revised edition: This edition of The Unwanted Wife includes editorial revisions.

Regret.

A HUSBAND’S REGRET

Tall and thin, twenty-eight-year-old Bronwyn Palmer has become positively gaunt, a ghost of her former self. That self was—and still is—the wife of a rich, handsome executive with an ocean-view house and his own security staff.
It was in that house, two years ago, that Bryce Palmer learned Bronwyn was pregnant with their first child. But Bryce’s rage over his impending fatherhood touched off a chain reaction of emotional and physical traumas that wounded them both. For Bronwyn, it meant fleeing the perfect marriage to start over with nothing but a precocious daughter named Kayla to care for. For Bryce, it meant a tortuous two years spent blaming his wife for deserting him, and living with the pain of not knowing his child. Now a chance encounter has brought Bronwyn back into Bryce’s life, both bearing scars…and neither knowing the whole truth of that fateful night that drove them apart.

Lover.

HIS UNLIKELY LOVER

Bobbi Richmond has always been in love with her best friend, Gabe Braddock, even if Gabe, who works for her media mogul father, has always treated Bobbi like a kid sister, calling her “Runt.”
After a tipsy Bobbi kisses Gabe at a party, Gabe is surprised to find “Runt” becoming the object of his fantasies, and Bobbi is shocked to find her advances suddenly reciprocated. When Gabe suggests adding “benefits” to their friendship—while keeping their new arrangement secret from their families, of course—should Bobbi feel flattered, or insulted by his insistence on casual sex? Are they even a match? Slick and conservative Gabe dates coiffed blondes, while the tomboyish Bobbi spends much more time fixing cars than her hair.
When Gabe’s twin brother, Chase, senses something’s up between the old friends, he forces Gabe to confront his real feelings for Bobbi—and decide whether or not he could live without her.

All that glitters may lead right to his heart…
The last thing Cleopatra Knight expects on her business trip to Tokyo is to fall into bed with her arrogant, irresistibly hot boss, Dante Damaso. It’s a mistake—a steamy, mind-blowingly satisfying mistake. But a few nights of passion with the superwealthy bad boy prove to have long-term effects when Cleo’s world is unexpectedly turned upside down.
Dante has cultivated an enviable, jet-setting lifestyle: beautiful women, exotic destinations, and luxury without limits.

Still, he knows he has both the responsibility and the financial means to help Cleo.
Though Cleo has no interest in Dante’s money, her lack of prospects gives her little choice but to accept his help. But living under the same roof, Dante discovers he wants more, and if Cleo lets down her guard, she just might find what her heart’s wanted all along.
