Welcome and thank you for visiting! I'm thrilled to introduce you to my books and especially the women I love to write about. I create the type of characters that I love to read about – women of a certain age – intelligent and independent women who know what they want out of life, are willing to stand on their own to get it, and are quite happy doing just that. They are not perfect and can laugh at themselves – even when they really feel like crying. My characters are mothers, daughters, sisters, friends. They choose to be with a man because they want to, not because they need to. To paraphrase humorist Frank Kaiser, my characters are women who have “been around long enough to know who she is, what she wants, and from whom.” And they make sure their own happiness comes first.
