Eliciting Emotion: Hook Your Readers’ Hearts
Ultimately, I earned a joint law/M.B.A. degree and practiced commercial real estate and lending law for a decade in my hometown of Pittsburgh (Go Steelers!). I learned so much during that decade, but was never passionate about the work. When my husband’s career took us to Connecticut, I opted to stay at home to raise our two young children. That decision presented a second chance to revisit the idea of writing.
These days I dream up stories about love, family, self-discovery, and redemption. Sometimes they’re spicy (my Sterling Canyon books), and sometimes more poignant (the St. James and Cabot novels), but I strive to make each of them realistic and heartwarming. Recently, I earned a spot on the Romance Writers of America’s Honor Roll, and I’m so grateful to each and every reader who has given wings to this new chapter in my life.
When I’m not writing, you can find me dancing around my kitchen while cooking, and hitting the slopes in Vermont and Utah.
