1. What genre(s) do you write?
Women’s fiction and contemporary romance
2. Coffee or tea lover?
Coffee. I’m addicted to my Keurig and sip on half-caff all day.
3. Name one thing on your bucket list
I’d love to spend a summer writing in a mountain cabin.
4. Do you have pets?
Sadly, no. But I’m lobbying hard for a Corgi or a Beagle.
5. When I wake up every morning I… Hit the ground running. Coffee (while I check in with Facebook and answer emails), then a nice, long walk before I tackle my daily To Do list.
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
The over 150 roosters in my kitchen. Ten years ago, I bought one—one!—ceramic rooster to set on my kitchen counter. Despite my objections, (“Oh, you shouldn’t have. Really.”) friends and family have added to the collection ever since. The thing is, I don’t particularly like roosters.
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
Cooking, baking and crocheting. Last year, several of my friends went crazy for Halo Top, so I made them all cozies for their ice cream containers.
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
There’s so much turmoil and strife in the world. I write tender, heartwarming stories that give my readers an escape from their troubles and a chance to relax.

WWII is finally over, but Hanna’s husband, Chet, didn’t return home. She puts on a brave smile during the day while nursing her hospital patients, but at night, she grieves the loss of her love.
Then the Christmas Comet appears for the first time in over seventy years, and Hanna’s caught in a snowstorm and knocked unconscious. She wakes up in modern times, and much to her confusion, her small town has changed. A local cop takes pity on her and invites her to stay with his family over the holiday.
As she searches for her place in this familiar yet different town, Hanna discovers that even small acts of kindness impact lives…and that the true meaning of Christmas is timeless. Now, she hopes to find her way back to her own time…and this year’s comet may lead her to a Christmas miracle.
