All my books are novels for adults with romance as their primary theme but exploring other aspects of life from history to fantasy with people sometimes caught in dangerous situations who must find their way to a safe landing. Some are connected books, with continuing characters-- where a secondary character might show up in a new book as a hero/heroine. Each book stands alone with no cliff hangers.

Because mine vary for the 'heat' level, I devised this chart. If you find a book that interests you, look for the hearts. Some books with strong language or mild profanity.

♥ ------holding hands, perhaps a gentle kiss
♥♥ ---- more kisses but no tongue-- no foreplay
♥♥♥ ---kissing, tongue, caressing, foreplay & pillow talk
♥♥♥♥ --all of above, full sexual experience including climax
♥♥♥♥♥ -all of above including coarser language and sex more frequent

losing some innocence as an author

My books and I have come a long way since the first stories came out on Kindle. The characters have stayed true to themselves but sometimes I've improved ways of projecting them. I am proud of these stories, the ones that did so well and the ones not so well. Each is all I can make them be.

They are all about love, about the kind of love that must struggle to make it happen, that stays the distance, that if it runs, it turns around. My books are about new love and love that's been lost only to be rediscovered. The stories are of those who stand tall when the going is tough. 

My original covers are still true to my heart even though they are all gone now to be followed by covers that are good too, that more suit the genre, and are perhaps less innocent-- as am I.

The water is wide... I can't cross over... 
I need a hand... and wings to fly... 
give me a boat that can carry two...

It's what romance is all about.
