Hi, thanks for stopping by!

Author, Mother, Wife, Goat Farmer


If you're familiar with Goldilocks, you have an idea what my life was like. Growing up in the suburbs had been a little too soft. A short stint in the city was a little too hard. But a recent move to the country proved just right!

Married to my college sweetheart for over three decades, we now live on a farm in the mountains of north-western New Jersey. Surrounded by acres of pastures and woodlands, we have 20+ goats, a dozen chickens and are looking forward to adding a dog or two to the craziness. It's only natural that my two beautiful granddaughters call me Farm Mama. We'll have to see what name my two brand-new grandsons have in store for me!

To clear out my head in preparation for writing, I love jigsaw puzzles, coloring and am addicted to an odd combination of Hallmark movies, HGTV's Home Town, and Discovery's Alaskan Bush People.

The heroes in my stories were created by the examples of the men in my life--my husband's devotion to the family, and the protective, loving ways my three sons treat the women in their lives. I'm truly lucky to have that kind of inspiration!

So grab a cup of coffee and cozy up with a copy of my debut book, BREWED FOR LOVE, and see what small-town romance is all about!
