Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have loved books and romance novels since I was in high school. The happy endings and endless possibilities are alluring and addictive. I currently reside in Texas and when I am not thinking up my next bad-boy character I am working in the community rescuing dogs while being a wife and mother to my wonderful family. To date I have written a total of 7 books and three series and have a ton of ideas of new story lines that have yet to be created.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest published book is Chasing Karma which is about a feisty daughter of a Mafia leader who leaves her home and travels to college. After being shadowed by security all her life she is in need of blending into the background and leading a normal life. What she gets instead is a life of drama and two bad boys hot on her trail. I started writing this book after watching the Godfather one too many times and having having gangsters on the brain.
