When was the last time that a book you read made you feel good? Well, my readers tell me that my stories take them to another world, and when they return to their lives, they feel refreshed. That's certainly my aim. I want to educate, encourage, and entertain. 


I write about ordinary women who do extra-ordinary things, because those are the people I know and admire. Probably someone a lot like YOU!


If I had any motto to live by, it would surely be this quotation from Emily Dickinson: Dwell in possibilities. When I see how far I've come in life, and how I've defied expectations, I can't help but thank my lucky stars and my wild imagination! So come with me, take my hand, and let's go to a place where "happily ever after" meets "the woman next door."

Welcome to winter in Hobe Sound, Florida. I am in my loft writing away as so many of you have asked me to do this past year. It is hard to focus sometimes when I look out my window at this beautiful ocean. That's when I take a break and go for a walk with Jax on the beach to help me plot out the next Kiki and Cara Mia books.

Now available in ebook and print

Kicked to the Curb (Book #2)

All Washed Up (Book #3 to be released in 2015)


Author’s Note: The Kiki Lowenstein Mystery Series has left readers asking for more. So I’ve created this new series featuring one of Kiki’s friends, Cara Mia Delgatto. These books will continue the key elements that I think make for a great book: a realistic and relatable cast of characters, an interesting setting, lovable rescued pets, doable craft tips, and yummy recipes. Above all, this is a “clean” read without bad language, graphic sex, or too much violence. See why my readers turn to my books for a  wonderful escape that leaves them feeling better rather than down!
