I’ve been writing romances since I was a little girl.

I always dreamed that one day my knight in shining armor would come, and I am equally addicted to fairy tales as I am to chocolate and caramel. Unfortunately, like the heroine of most great romances, the princess has some drudgery before she meets her prince and I worked in advertising for many years while penning my prose at night under the covers with a flashlight. My husband was down there too.

After our ten-year marriage ended, I found herself 38, single and kissing frogs once more. What happened to romance, I wondered? As the bad dates continued, I thought, what does a big, beautiful girl have to do to flag down a handsome prince?

I realized that while I was waiting around for him, I could give the rest of the world a little more romance, as well as chocolate and a few dirty thoughts, by sharing my stories. The Cruise series is the first of many more to come.

I recommend curling up with a good book and a bag of treats until you find yourself under the covers with your next sexy prince. When not reading, writing or snacking, I can be found on the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, salivating over impractical shoes or having a cocktail with an impossible cute frog.
