Do you love books? Me, too. I fell in love with stories long before I could read or write. On the day I was old enough to have my very own library card, I felt as if I’d been given a magic wand. Abracadabra! The world around me fell away as books transported me into places I’d never dreamed of.  Years have passed, and now I write my own books. Books for women, about women. Women suddenly wrenched out of happily-ever-after worlds they assumed were promised them. But life doesn’t guarantee any of us fairy tale endings. I hope that the women you meet in my books help you navigate your own world, and provide you with a piece or two of good news to carry away long after you read the final page. Happy Reading.
