It should come as no surprise to any of you that my chosen path in life was determined long before I was ready to accept it. My mom continues to remind me that I should have listened to her in my late teens and started my writing career at a much younger age. Instead, I explored my passion for the written word as a hobby until my father passed away suddenly in 2011…when I realized life is too short to not wholeheartedly pursue your dreams.
I took my hobby to the next level when I hit Publish on my first book, Only In Her Dreams, in 2012. This book was an exploration of a new genre for me, Urban Fantasy.
My favorite genre to write (and read) has always been historical, beginning with American Westerns including Little House on the Prairie and moving to Regency Romance as I entered my late teens and early twenties. I lived every day—and late into the nights—with a book in my hands. Julie Garwood introduced me to the finest of London ballrooms, Victoria Alexander showed me how bad a rakehell could be, and Amanda Quick exposed me to the marvels of mystery as a sub-plot.
With the release of Shunned No More, A Lady Forsaken Book One, in May of 2014, I’ve been writing exclusively historical romance…and don’t foresee myself straying too far from this genre. I have been in love with history for as long as I can remember.
With my first series complete, I am now working on four (yes, you read that correctly!) new series: Craven House Series (four books), Lady Archer’s Creed Series (four books), Undaunted Debutantes Series (trilogy), and Lords of Deceit Series (seven books). This is in addition to several standalone novellas.
My plate is FULL…and that is where Barclay Publicity has come to my rescue!
With Danielle and Jasmyn’s help and guidance with marketing, promotion, and book releases, I’ll have more time to do what I enjoy most…WRITE!
And this is all possible because you, my amazing readers, support me and my books by sharing my new releases, writing reviews, and telling your friends about authors you love!

Following the passing of his father and an unforgivable act by a family member ending in near ruin for his family, Simon Montgomery, the new Earl of Cartwright, is forced to return home without finishing his education. However, that doesn’t stop Cart from absorbing every morsel of knowledge he can.
Unfortunately, doing so and applying his every moment to restoring his family’s lost heirlooms while seeing to his sister’s upbringing and attempting to wrangle his mother’s frivolous spending habits has made him somewhat of a recluse, a man unsure of how to live life unless it’s focused around academia, order, and routine. But what happens when Cart is faced with a woman as intelligent as he but far more cunning?
Miss Judith Pengarden has lived her entire life under her eldest sister’s firm yet loving guidance. When she discovers her family is in jeopardy of losing their home, Jude decides to use her skills to help them pay off their unsettled debts. However, when Jude attempts to steal from the wrong house, she finds herself alone, locked in a dank room at the night watchman’s residence, and she vows to stop thinking so spontaneously and risking her family’s name to scandal. Unfortunately, there are some loose ends that need to be tied up before she can. Luckily for her, however, she may have just met the man who can help her family and also steal a piece of her heart.
When Jude meets Lord Cartwright at a London garden party, he seems the perfect man to solve all her problems—a recluse unfamiliar with London Society and studied in antiquities. A lord like none she has met, Jude soon realizes that Cart is more valuable to her than any painting, sculpture, or vase. But when she’s caught in possession of Cart’s long-lost family heirloom, completely unaware of what it really means, can she convince him that things are far from what they seem? That despite the deceit and subterfuge, her heart is in the right place. With her family…and with him.
