Book Release–Worth the Wait

St. Patty's Day is the release date for my sophomore novel, Worth the Wait. I adore everything about this story:  the setting (Block Island), the heroine (Vivi, who maintains a sunny outlook despite a heartbreaking childhood), the hero (David, an introvert who's brooding over a damaging secret...

Rainy Day Romantic Dreams

My mother came to visit my family this past weekend to participate in the Halloween festivities and see a few soccer games.
